Nintendo’s own Shigeru Miyamoto spoke with Eurogamer recently and confirmed Pikmin 4 is currently in development. The last game in the beloved series, Pikmin 3, was released back in August 2013 and many fans are ready for a new title.
Miyamoto confirmed the game exists and also went on to say the game is “actually very close to completion. Pikmin teams are always working on the next one.” No official release date was announced however.
What does this mean then? Does “close to completion” mean we’ll see Pikmin 4 on the Wii U or will it be a title bound for Nintendo’s next console? Codenamed NX, Nintendo is keeping very hush hush about what they have in store for us in the future as far as hardware is concerned. Nintendo isn’t in a sharing mood these days.
