‘Pikmin 4’ is in development, and “very close to completion” according to Miyamoto

Miyamoto says LOL.

So Shigeru Miyamoto just dropped in an interview that Pikmin 4 is almost close to completion. Which was a surprise to Pretty Much Everyone, since no one even knew it was in development. Hey. Neat. Cool. But like, could we get that fucking Zelda that we were promised? Oh, no? It’s being totally pushed back slowly onto the next Nintendo system? Great.

Pikmin 4 in development and “very close to completion”

Pikmin 4 is in development and “very close to completion”, Nintendo’s Shigeru Miyamoto has exclusively confirmed to Eurogamer.

“It’s actually very close to completion,” Miyamoto said. “Pikmin teams are always working on the next one.”

Nintendo then confirmed the news to Eurogamer in a separate statement:

“We can confirm that Pikmin 4 is in development but that is all we can confirm at present.”

The last title in the garden strategy series, Pikmin 3, launched for Wii U back in 2013.

Miyamoto did not specify the platform that Pikmin 4 would launch on, but word that the game is close to completion suggests a launch is possible on the company’s current hardware.
