E3 is just under two months away now and Nintendo are sure to have a lot to show us this year with the Wii U and its upcoming launch titles. The exciting news though is the announcement from a Nintendo representative about the revealing of the upcoming strategy game, Pikmin Wii U, at E3 this year. With the possibility of this Miyamoto-developed game being utilized as a launch title for the Wii U, there should be a great deal of hype toward the console.

Here’s the statement given by the Nintendo representative:

“In a recent interview, Mr. Miyamoto confirmed that a new Pikmin game will be shown at the E3 Expo in June. He believes that anyone who has played Pikmin games in the past will enjoy playing.”

Originally, Pikmin Wii U was set to release on Wii yet Miyamoto felt that the game could do with a graphic upscale to HD. The wait may seem long yet a lot of effort has been put in to make this the best Pikmin game yet.

Are you excited for this game? Would you buy a Wii U just to play the upcoming Pikmin title? Do you think the Wii U launch lineup will be better than the 3DS had? Let us know by writing some comments for us!

    HD cel shaded? how does that work exactly? there are plenty of different ways to use cell shade, to make lots of interesting graphics. but how would a cell shaded game in HD look different from normal?
    not complaining, just woundering. as for pikman, I tryd one and liked it for a while. but it got old fast. hopefully though I'll have more fun with this one if and when I eventually get it. it probably won't be for a long time though. not till prices have dropped a bit.

      Who mentioned Cel Shaded? We haven't seen the graphic style of Pikmin 3 yet, and Pikmin 1 and 2 were not Cel Shaded, cartoonish in effect but not Cel shaded. And also what do you mean by how does that work? It gets displayed in HD like anything else, it would look different because of it's higher resolution, I don't really understand what your asking.

      I'm starting to think though people believe that HD is a type of 'graphic' like Cel shaded, when it just isn't it's the resolution of your TV, if a console is HD it means it is capable of displaying screen based content in High Definition hence HD.

    I have been a pikmin fan for the for a long time, but due to my tight wallet I am not going to be able to buy it right when it comes out… 🙁 But this is one of the games i am looking forward to when i actually have enough rupees.

    If I could, I'd probably buy a Wii U (and pikmin Wii U) on release date, but I still have parents who won't allow me to buy it… 🙁
