Nintendo Will Show A New Pikmin Game At This Year’s E3


At last year’s E3, Nintendo’s Shigeru Miyamoto confirmed that the next Pikmin game would be released on the Wii U. Since then, he hasn’t had much else to say on the subject of Pikmin.


Today, however, Nintendo of America said in a statement to Kotaku: “In a recent interview, Mr. Miyamoto confirmed that a new Pikmin game will be shown at the E3 Expo in June. He believes that anyone who has played Pikmin games in the past will enjoy playing.”


The “interview” mentioned by Nintendo of America is one with a Spanish publication named El Mundo, where Miyamoto also mentions the New Super Mario Bros. game shown last year for the Wii U. That, too, will be present at E3 2012.
