GoNintendo 'End of Day' thought - What do you want from the next Pikmin?Click Here to View Story
Man, my eyes are hanging heavy. I've got to turn in before I pass out on the keyboard! Just one more day away from the weekend, and boy do I need it! See you all in a few, short hours.
Remember all those years at E3 where we all hoped that the next Pikmin game would be shown? Eventually, Miyamoto did announce that he was working on a new Pikmin game for the Wii. Years went by, but we never saw the game. Not even a single bit of artwork. Then we finally found out that the title was moving from Wii to Wii U. According to Miyamoto, he just had to make the change after seeing the high-def visuals that were possible.
After all of that, we know with 100% accuracy that Nintendo is going to show off the next Pikmin game at E3 this year. We're actually going to see the game we've been waiting very patiently for. Last we heard, the game had a good chance of making launch of the Wii U. Even if it didn't make launch, it would see release soon thereafter. Let's keep our fingers crossed for a launch confirmation at E3.
While we wait for that E3 reveal, it's time to really start thinking about what we want from the Pikmin series. We all had some fantsatic ideas as to what the franchise could achieve via Wiimote and Nunchuk. Those ideas were realized through the New Play Control series, but now the Wii U is offering up a completely new experience. Just what can Pikmin do on Wii U that it couldn't do before?
Do you have ideas as to how the Wii U could lead to the best Pikmin yet, aside from the visuals? Leave a comment and let us know what direction you think the franchise is going to take. It's been awhile since we've visited Olimar in his franchise of origin, but boy am I ready to return!
