Hey! Pikmin marks a unique departure for the series, as the strategic action moves into the realm of side-scrollers. With Captain Olimar stranded on a planet and in need of 30,000 Sparklium to take off again, he calls upon various colors of Pikmin to help him complete his mission and stay alive in the process.
For those who missed yesterday's Nintendo Direct presentation, one of the big surprises was the reveal of a new Pikmin game for Nintendo 3DS. The temporarily-titled Pikmin is a side-scrolling game with a focus on action and quick thinking, but many of the staples of the series are still present. It's due out in 2017, and you can see some footage after the jump.
Despite the fact that Eurogamer conducted the interview in July, a chat with Nintendo that revealed Pikmin 4's production was under embargo until today. Thus, we now know that Pikmin 4 is in the works and "very close to completion" according to Shigeru Miyamoto himself. Read on for more.
Hey, Nintendo, where's our new F-Zero? If you've had that question on your mind, you'll find at least a partial answer in Shigeru Miyamoto's recent appearance on Smosh Games. Not only did Miyamoto play the guys in Mario Kart 8, he also talked Pikmin and more through the translation help of Bill Trinen. See what he had to say about F-Zero after the jump.
There's more Pikmin on the way, but this time Shigeru Miyamoto is turning his strategic plant life series into an animated film. Aptly titled Pikmin Short Movie, the CG-animated work will be screened at next month's Tokyo International Film Festival. More after the jump.
Nintendo recently posted a trailer for the Pikmin 3 DLC that hit Wii U this week. Originally announced in November, the DLC introduces new mission modes with fresh environments like the Beastly Caverns and more. See what's new after the jump.
If you've run out of things to do in Pikmin 3, a new update has arrived to toss in the horde-battling mission type known as "Battle Enemies!" The first stage is available via an automatic update for free, and the full DLC can be purchased in the eShop for $1.99. Pics and more past the break.
Nintendo has a handful of series lined up for the Nintendo Video 3DS app, with new shorts launching and running into 2014. Chief among them is The Legend of Zelda: The Misadventures of Link and shorts starring Pikmin. More after the jump.
It's no secret how truly horrifying Nintendo's "cute" Pikmin series is, so it makes sense to combine it with the intense hopelessness of Attack on Titan. All is not lost, however, when the eponymous critters get their hands on some 3D Maneuver Gear and attempt to take back the garden. Check it out after the jump.
The latest installment of the ever-informative and interesting Did You Know Gaming? video series turns its attention toward Nintendo's Pikmin games, just in time for the arrival of Pikmin 3 on Wii U. See if anything jumps out at you in the clip after the jump.
