Yeah guys I'm just kind of wondering if anyone else thinks pikmin is the new f zero. I remember miyamoto saying it was almost finished when wii u was only halfway done.

You think we'll ever get pikmin 4?

It will come eventually. Nice, niche game to put out in some future gap between more major releases.

Thing about Pikmin though is I always found it does have a lot of potential to be one of their big sellers they just have to be more consistant about their releases.

Imagine being a fan of StarTropics, Earthbound, Wave Race, Meteos, F-Zero, Kid Icarus, Puzzle League, Wario Land, Drill Dozer, Ice Climbers, Pokemon Snap, Advance Wars, Sin & Punishment, and then imagine then seeing bloodthirsty Pikmin fans demanding yet more games in their beloved franchise.

You monsters. 😭

We'll get another Pikmin. Don't worry. We'll get one. Nintendo loves the franchise way too much to let it fizzle.

Ha. Oh believe me id much rather see a new sin and punishment or f zero than pikmin. Although in s&p's case we lost glorious ir pointing... Which sucks for pikmin too come to think of it.

I dunno man, we haven't heard a peep on pikmin in 3 years.

You haven't even gotten the inevitable 3DS -> Switch remaster of Hey Pikmin yet. That's probably on the way, too.

Almost 6 actually. And no DunDunDunpachi DunDunDunpachi that doesn't count lol
Hey! Pikmin was released in 2016. You asked if Pikmin was dead and then directly called reference to F-Zero as if Pikmin has gone multiple generations/years without a single game, not even a spin-off. Hell it's only been one (Nintendo) generation, asking if it's dead is pretty premature considering we have multiple series that we haven't gotten a new entry for between generations.

At least Pikmin got a spin-off, so it's not dead.

They said they were working on it. That's all there is to it. They did the same thing with Pikmin 3 years ago, Miyamoto just said the are working on it and it eventually came out on Wii-U.

Yeah but it's not proper pikmin either and f zero got a nod in Mario kart 8, so its not like they forgot it exists.

I'm definitely not saying pikmin is as dead as f zero but I do wonder.

Again though, it's only been one (Nintendo) generation and we already know that they were making it. If the Switch doesn't get an entry, then you should worry, but right now I think it's really premature.

Their was a long gap between Pikmin 2 and 3 as well from what I can recall.

Last game came 2 years ago so how is Pikmin dead exactly? We’ll eventually get a new one, just be patient.
