    rar, awesome, Pikmin 3 pretty much has been one of my most wanted titles on the Wii since it was announced T_T’ Ignoring SSBM (due to being a hopeless fan), Pikmin 2 was my favorite game on the Wii, rar, such a good game >w<' Also I'm really looking forward to Miyamoto making a new character, I'm kind of eager to see what it'll be, and what type of game they'll be in!

  • I guess 3DS is a possibility, considering there was a short Pikmin video demo for 3DS at E3.
