Pikmin 3 Will Have No Online Multiplayer


Shigeru Miyamoto has confirmed that the upcoming Wii U title, Pikmin 3 will feature local multiplayer but will not feature any online multiplayer.

Speaking to IGN, Shigeru Miyamoto stated:

“You have to be very careful that you don’t drop frames as you’re trying to sync up with other players over what could be a very great physical distance, over the internet, But in the situation of Pikmin, for example, since you would have lots of individual, small creatures, the Pikmin, whose every movement and location is going to be really important in the game, it would be very difficult to sync up over an internet connection.”

“So what we’ve decided to do is focus on the single-player and local multiplayer aspects, which are really fun. But unfortunately, no online multiplayer for Pikmin 3. But the co-op local multiplayer is really fun.”
