Following on from yesterday’s confirmation of a Super Mario game for the Wii U being shown off at E3 this year, Nintendo has today stated that they will also be unveiling at brand new Pikimin title for their soon-to-be-released console.
Speaking to Spanish newspaper El Mundo, Shigeru Miyamoto suggested an appearance at E3, but Nintendo has now confirmed it.
A Nintendo spokesperson stated the following:
“In a recent interview, Mr. Miyamoto confirmed that a new Pikmin game will be shown at the E3 Expo in June. He believes that anyone who has played Pikmin games in the past will enjoy playing.”
The last Pikmin game (Pikmin 2) was released back in 2004 for the Gamecube, it will be interesting to how Miyamoto has taken advantage of the Wii U’s tablet controller for this latest addition to the series. We do know that we’re rather excited, and can’t wait to see what Nintendo show off at their E3 conference.
