Remember that new Pikmin game announced back in 2015? Apparently, it's still being worked on, as confirmed by the series creator.
Be kind of cool to see what they do with Pikmin 4 on the NX.
I enjoyed the hell out of Pikmin 3, so this is definitely welcome news as far as I'm concerned.
Pikmin 2 GAMECUBE had a real looking Avocado to collect, and other photorealistic collectibles, putting that hardware to really good use. What of pikmin for NX ?
Speaking of Pikmin 2, we need a sequel that improves upon the ideas introduced by this game. Pikmin 3 is excellent as it is, but I'd like to see caves again.
Woohoo, this title is very innovative and overall fun, what an amazing universe they created. Good to see other titles than Mario thrive ( I do love the Mario games), more of Splatoon for NX and Xenoblade, Fire emblem. I am sad not to have seen a major Fire Emblem game for the WiiU, I do hope for a release on the NX. Although Conquest has been amazing.
Better late than never I say!
Didn't he say early last year that the game was pretty much already done? So what does he mean by "it has been hard to kind of fit that into that list", unless it was originally a 3DS/WiiU game and he had to start over from scratch for the NX.
He may have meant that conceptually the game was already done, and they had the assets to reuse from Pikmin 3. Meaning everything was there (done) and they just had to put it together. Either way I imagine it was moved to NX. I'm sure that added to the things to do. I'd honestly be glad if it was. Even though I own a Wii U, the NX could use some heavy hitters early on to show that Nintendo is serious about getting games out for it.
Hopefully its a launch title for NX
Honestly, that's exactly what I see happening.
Been a huge fan since the first. Day 1 for me. Can't wait to hear the story and what new Pikmin there will be.
Here's hoping they'll make 1 and 2 downloadable.
Zelda,Pikmin and possibly Beyond Good and Evil 2 at launch would be some serious noise for NX.
I'll never forget playing Pikmin 1 with a friend who only played RPG and Strategy games on PCs and saw consoles as toys. After about 10 minutes he asked to have a go and then after another 10 minutes said "hey, this is a strategy game!" 4 hours later and he was still playing it. He's come over to play each Pikmin since and no doubt will again when I buy Pikmin 4.
This was "very close to completion" last year, NX launch title, which is fine, I hope they utilize the NXs power and don't just port what was developed for Wii U over.
It'd be cool if they also made a Wii U version to go along with the new Zelda.
