Pikmin 4 Almost Here?

Fans of the Pikmin series—who may have played Pikmin 2 when they were young—had to wait nearly a decade for the next instalment, Pikmin 3, which released in the summer of 2013. As for Pikmin 4, we weren’t sure when it would appear…but it looks like the wait is going to be much shorter than a decade.

In fact, in speaking with Eurogamer in a recent interview, Shigeru Miyamoto stated that the next Pikmin game is “very close to completion” though he wouldn’t elaborate on what platform the game would arrive. Nintendo followed up this comment afterward with an official statement, saying: “We can confirm that Pikmin 4 is in development but that is all we can confirm at present.”

Does that mean we won’t see this game until the new, mysterious NX arrives? It’s hard to say, though there is some speculation afoot that it could also be a DeNA partnership project (and hence a game for iOS or Android). But that seems unlikely, considering the way the first three titles were presented to players, but Nintendo is nothing if not innovative with their IPs.

We’ll keep you updated as news on Pikmin 4 arrives!

Dave will tell you that he likes to play video games, this is in fact a lie. What he really likes to do is buy games, and leaving them sitting unopened on his shelf. He is a monster.
