Nintendo nonchalantly confirmed a new Pikmin game was in development at E3 when Shigeru Miyamoto said “We’re making Pikimn” at Nintendo's 2008 E3 Developer Roundtable. No media was shown and the platform wasn’t even announced.
My search for shreds of information on the next installment of Pikmin brought me to Japan’s trademark database where Nintendo registered Piktura a month before E3. Piktura sounds like it could be related to Pikmin since it contains the Pik-prefix. Of course this is far from confirmed, the new Pikmin game might be plain old Pikmin 3. If that’s the case then what does Nintendo plan to do with Piktura?
