Pikmin 3 confirmed for E3
After nearly a decade of absence, Pikmin are confirmed to make a return on the Wii U with Pikmin 3. Miyamoto has confirmed that we will see the game at E3.
After several teases and a near-official announcement, Miyamoto told Spanish publication El Mundo that Pikmin 3 will be showcased at this year’s E3. GameInformer.com has reported that a Nintendo representative confirmed Miyamoto’s announcement, ensuring that fans of the series will indeed see the third installment of Pikmin on Nintendo’s upcoming Wii U console.
It is certainly an exciting time for fans of the series as there has not been a new Pikmin game in eight years.
Pikmin 3 to Nintendo is Half Life 3 to Valve. and hopefully they will both be at E3 this year. and if they are, it truly is the end of the world in 2012.
Theres also a lot of charm to the game. and you might even think its soothing at times. it definitely has a unique style that the people who play it can appreciate.
Alright, thanks for the info. I also think one of my friends has pikmin 1 so I can ask him if I can borrow it and then when I play it I can see if I really like it. Seeing as how your not a "god" but rather in your words the "Commander" I can see that it will be a much different experience than a regular RTS
It is NOTHING like what you think of when you hear "RTS," though. You're not some god who can fly around the whole map and instantly relay commands anywhere. Imagine playing the commander instead, except there are no lower authorities you can delegate to (except the other commander in the second game, where you can switch which one you're controlling at any time). Also, your soldiers are REEEALLY stupid (they will not try to avoid hazards like deep water and fire, for example). The only place whose location they ever know is your base; to tell them to do something far away that's not "take this back to the base," you have to physically lead them there first. And so on.
It's really only called an RTS because that's the genre it's *closest* to being in.
An RTS you say? I have never been a fan of that genre but I will try non the less. Or if one of my friends gets it i'll try it and if I like it i'll buy it
I guess you could call it a real time strategy game. It's mainly about planing and controlling all of your little pikmin buddies and using them to advance, usually with a time-limit.
About time damn
I should pick up pikmin 3 for the Wii U and see why people like it so much. To those who have played pikmin, what is the game genre?
ABOUT DAMN TIME NINTENDO!
More Kinect and Move sh*t we don't care about.
FINALLY!!! Now we just need F-zero and Star Fox.
Aaaand, follow up story about mistranslation, in 3, 2.....
wait so im not the only one who thinks pikmin 2 is the greatest thing in existence? you are a good person nitroklop, and you deserve a cookie.
Good thing this is for wii u, I can't imagine all the benefits of a seconds screen for a real time strategy.
Hell yes. I've been waiting a long time for a sequel to my all time favorite game.
I've gotten more fun out of Pikmin 2 than I have ever gotten out of any other game in existence, it's about time.
Pikmin 2 actually has already had a re-release on the Wii in the PAL region if I'm not mistaken.
I'm still waiting on a Pikmin 2 rerelease for the Wii. :'(
I still haven't played any of the Pikmin games, even though I thought Pikmin looked really cool when I got my GameCube. Need to get 1 & 2 for my Wii... if I still can.
Let's not get ahead of ourselves, now. We still have yet to see what Sony and MS have up their sleeves.
