Just before accepting his British Academy of Film and Television Arts Fellowship yesterday, Shigeru Miyamoto was caught mentioning everybody’s favorite onion people by the Official Nintendo Magazine. From their Twitter:
ONM is at the BAFTAs! Miyamoto just told us Pikmin 3 development is “well under way”.
Considering that we’ve already been told that Mario Galaxy 2, Metroid: Other M, and a new Zelda game are coming out this year, I’d be surprised if we saw a new Pikmin before 2011. The original Pikmin has been ported to the Wii, to take advantage of the Wiimote’s point-and-click capabilities in its RTS-like gameplay. It’ll be nice to see an even more advanced version of the game do even more with the console.
