[Iwata] This time, Mr. Hitoshi Matsumoto, who has publically stated a love for Pikmin, will discuss the series with it's creator Mr. Miyamoto while playing some Pikmin 3. It will be a little bit different to a regular Direct. Please watch if you have the time.

When does it start in my time zone? Click this link for worldwide times.

Where can I watch the Japanese presentation? Right here: http://www.nintendo.co.jp/nintendo_d...626/index.html

I will be providing live translations here in the OP and on my Twitter feed, @Cheesemeister3k.

20:00 The presentation has begun. It's been a while since Hitoshi Matsumoto and Miyamoto met.
20:01 Game creation involves planning, as well as data and asset creation. Matsumoto looked up Miyamoto on Wikipedia, learned about tea table upending.
20:02 Since Pikmin 2 was released, Matsumoto has gotten married and had kids. Starting with story mode. Going to an unknown planet, meeting the Pikmin.
20:03 New characters are from a different planet than Olimar, though they look similar. Miyamoto will start by reading the scripted lines.
20:04 There's an object like the GamePad in the game. Run into the yellow Pikmin first.
20:05 Throw Pikmin with the A button, and they take care of the shrooms. Call with B. Matsumoto doesn't really need an explanation; Miyamoto need not be there.
20:06 That's the end of the day for the 1st character, Charlie. Here's the 2nd, Alph.
20:07 Pikmin will be tossed toward the on-screen target. Carry enemies, etc. to onion.
20:08 Matsumoto can't reach the GamePad with the red Pikmin. Use Z button to change cam.
20:09 The Pikmin build a bridge out of the shingles. Matsumoto gets the appeal.
20:10 A map is on the GamePad. See remaining Pikmin, allies. More Pikmin carry faster.
20:11 Plucking Pikmin has been simplified. Just press A to pluck them all.
20:13 Rock Pikmin are in the game. Blast off to a higher altitude at night than before.
20:15 7 to 10 min. missions are available for practice. Small Bulbears die quickly. Rescue Pikmin captured by a jellyfish-like creature by tossing rock Pikmin.
20:16 Once the time limit is up, your score is tallied. You'll get better with practice. Flying Pikmin can retrieve objects from otherwise inaccessible spots.
20:17 There are lots of strategies to enjoy. Missions can be cleared in about 10 min.
20:18 A replay feature allows you to see everything you did in that play session.
20:19 Games can get under your skin and affect you unlike anything else, even frustrate.
20:20 More will have to come up and continue creating Pikmin after Miyamoto's gone.
20:21 The presentation is now over. Thanks for following!

I doubt it would be only pikmin 3, Pikmin 3 may just be the main focus

Very excited. So far this game is looking more like Pikmin 1 with better combat: exactly what I wanted when I played Pikmin 1.

Is there a confirmation of no dungeons?

Here are last year's Nintendo Direct dates:
  1. February 22
  2. April 21
  3. June 3 - Pre E3 Direct
  4. June 21
  5. August 29
  6. September 3rd - Wii U Preview Direct
  7. October 25th
  8. December 5th

So far, they've been following this basic schedule for this year as well. I've excluded the mini-directs because those seem arbitrary. Not sure whether or not this is a mini-direct for Pikmin 3 but even if it is, we should be expecting a real one soon.

Seriously. They say it themselves. This is a Pikmin Direct.

The investor meeting is where we should get juicy info.
