Kotaku: Pikmin 3 (Wii U) at E3 2012 confirmed

Awesome! We all knew it was coming, but it's nice to get confirmation it will finally be shown.

Also, that gif makes me miss the old NPD threads with all the Mama Robotnik Star Trek gifs.
Multiplayer... No. ONLINE multiplayer! With modes for more than two players, perhaps.

I would literally even forgive them having SD graphics on WiiU and no other new features, this would be enough for me.

Remember, people: the multiplayer in Pikmin 2 is one of the most amazing things ever in gaming history.

This was probably the most surprising thing when I played 2. Pikmin 2 multiplayer was brutally amazing. I didn't think much of it at first, but then, OH BOY, did that view change.


Maturity, bitches.

Lets just hope with all the anticipation for this title people will actually buy it.

Might go back and replay Pikmin 2. Think I didn't quite get to the true end, but its been so long I'm better off starting again. Shame I've also got a backlog to think about.
One of the parts should be a Wii Remote with some good old Duracell batteries. For whatever reason, Pikmin is one of the few games that product placement doesn't bother me.
Yeah. It was actually kinda cool in Pikmin 2, oddly enough. I think part of it had to do with Olimar's explanations of the items.
Pretty obvious but nice to know. I will be on pins and needles waiting for the trailer during the conference.

Yes. They are fantastic.

Based on that Miyamoto interview that ain't happening for a while. :(
I don't get it. He spoke about not wanting a new f-zero until they can do something fresh with it, and yet we just got confirmation of a new super mario bros game :-/

Edit: make that a 2d mario game
All that development time better ensure an awesome game. I want to see a pikmin game that makes full use of the Wii U's capabilities from the tablet to the graphics to the online stuff. I hope we don't get just a few new pikmin colors and that's it. I can only imagine there are some cool new gameplay possibilities with the wii u's hardware like physics or larger stages, etc.
2. Pikmin 1>Pikmin 2
3. I can't see MamaRobotnik's gif and feel left out. :(
4. There is no way Pikmin 3 will live up to how much I am hyping it
