Pikmin Is Coming For The Wii U

A Pikmin game has long been in development for the Wii. Well, it's not anymore, as Nintendo has announced that the game is instead going to be released on the Wii U.

The original plan was to release the Wii game this year, for the series' 10th anniversary, but once Miyamoto saw the new system's HD graphics and controller, his mind was made up.

"I think that's the perfect system for Pikmin. So we're going to make it for that", he said earlier today at a Nintendo Q&A session.

Miyamoto adds that, because the Wii version was so far along, the release of the game on the Wii U "shouldn't be a long wait".

    Looks like we've got our first interesting Wii U launch title.

    Pikmin seems like a game that could make use of the touch screen too, wouldn't mind hearing more about this one.

    Oh man so good to hear! Didn't think we'd ever get it!

      I'm keen to see how it all works on the Wii U.

        Maybe like an RTS? Being able to select certain colours of Pikmin could be done easy on the controller.

    FFFUUUUUUUUU!!! I can't friggin wait for this, i'v kept wondering what was going on, i told ppl why isn't pikmin 3 been made ect. Very much looking foward to this game

    Oh my GOD..... I dont know if I should cry I have to wait longer or scream aloud cause it will be in HD?
