Okay, so I dont know if this topic was made yet, and if so, im sorry about that, but you may have heard at E3 2011 in the Nintendo round table confrence, at the very end, Shigeru Miyamoto (Creator of Mario) stated that a new pikmin game was going to be made for Wii U. He said because of the HD visuals the console has. And I agree, Pikmin 1 and 2 had amazing graphics for the Gamecube!

So anything to discuss abou the game?

As far as a release date, maybe a month or two after the launch of the system itself. Don't know why, I just feel as though that would be how it works.

I didn't play a whole lot of the Pikmin games, but what I did play I liked. I can see myself picking a copy of Pikmin 3 when it comes out, and I might play it entirely through. A good question is, how would they make use of the controller?

Old news is old.

But I won't troll you, I'll answer the question.
I haven't actually played the Pikmin games myself, but I think the controller could be used in away that the buttons are more for controlling Olimar, and that the touchscreen would be used to command Pikmin. Remember, this was in part developed for Wii originally, so there's bound to be some motion controls to it. Whether or not this means their original control schemes were updated for the Wii U, I have no idea.

Taking this idea from ExplosionKody, they could set it up where one character (Olimar) has Daytime segments, while another (Louie) could have nightshifts, using a few new species of Pikmin adapted for night time labour.

I can see the touchscreen being used to sort out all sorts of pre-action options, kind of like choosing what strategy you want before deploying your Pikmin. Setting up how to battle, how to gather, how to explore, how to patrol etc. etc.

I'm not familiar with the franchise myself, so I can go beyond that. Most of what I learned of it has been from SSBB information excerpts and ExplosionKody's video (yes I watched).

Yeah, I kinda figured it was old news, but I only joined the forums recently, and just wanted to talk about it.

I would prefer Launch. But, i would not like it to be rushed. If they delay it, it would be ok. 5 years? no. I want to play my first Pikmin game.

I would think that it would be at least a year after launch because we already have all of these hardcore games and if Nintendo would want to have a hardcore gaming audience then they would have to end up pushing back it's release date.

That sounds so bad it`s good. But seriously, Pikmin is pretty hardcore, especially the first one with its limits and difficulty.

I can see it being a launch title, wasn't Pikmin available at the Gamecube launch? Or at least soon after. Either way it's been in development for a good few years so they should be polishing it up right about now. I don't think they have to worry about it ruining the hardcore image of the Wii U, since Pikmin is a respected franchise amongst more hardcore Nintendo fans. That's part of what Nintendo needs to succeed with the Wii U, giving more attention to franchises like Pikmin, F-Zero, Star Fox, Fire Emblem, Metroid, etc. and a bit less to more established series like Mario and Zelda.

oh man, I can imagine that... A fight to the death, using only pikmins and olimar... and the other guy, whatever he's called. One player has olimar, the other has the other guy. You send you pikmin to the other team and whoevers guy is last standing wins :D
