Pikmin 4 is confirmed to be in development, AND IT'S NEAR COMPLETION.

Shigeru Miyamoto wrote:It's actually very close to completion. Pikmin teams are always working on the next one. We can confirm that Pikmin 4 is in development but that is all we can confirm at present.

Okay is Miyamoto even allowed to say anything about this? I find it odd that they were able to bring this up. Either way this makes me incredibly happy, I love the Pikmin series so much. I figured they were working on a new game anyway, but it's great to hear. Now it makes sense that Super Mario Maker development took so long, because it must've been something they were doing on the side.

EDIT: Well he must've been allowed to say something because Nintendo made their own official statement about it! Wow. Such a random announcement, and you'd think they'd at least give a logo or teaser instead of this.

Oh yay!
Maybe I'll play through this one.
That really came out of nowhere.

Anyone wagering that they might let us know about the details in a Direct soon?

^ I'd hope so, but you'd think the announcement itself would make more sense in a Direct. It almost makes it seem there won't be a Direct anytime soon, this was a very out of nowhere announcement.

^ That's how I am too, but not in the obviously sarcastic way you making it to be. xD

So what platform(s) do you guys think Pikmin 4 is on? If I were to guess, I'd say Wii U or NX, only because if it's on Wii U they can reuse the Pikmin 3 engine, and it would also be a good early title for NX. (maybe launch title since it's almost complete) I wouldn't be surprised if it ended up on 3DS or mobile, but it'd certainly be an odd fit.

Oh yay I'm glad Pikmin 4 was announced. It just came out of nowhere from Miyamoto himself. I hope it is at least longer than Pikmin 3, it was a great game but it was quite short. I'm pretty excited for Pikmin 4. Anyone think the Pikmin 3 captains will return or will it feature Olimar again? I have a feeling we'll be seeing Olimar again but maybe it will feature some entirely new main characters again.

I think it's being developed on Wii U, it makes the most sense and as Zero said they could reuse the Pikmin 3 engine easily. The first two games were on Gamecube so it would be nice if they continued the pattern of having two games on the same console in a row. 3DS seems odd to me but maybe they could get it to work.

I wonder why they didn't reveal this information at the Digital Event. Just a logo reveal or small teaser image would have been enough.

Different teams work on the Mario and Pikmin games Zero. They just work in the same group. I think Pikmin 4 will keep the same characters and maybe add more Pikmin such as a Ice Pikmin or a Grass one. I also think the game will end up being moved to the NX like how Pikmin 3 was moved for Wii to Wii U.

Miyamoto has given an update on Pikmin 4.

Miyamoto wrote:“Yes, you are right, and we’re working on [Pikmin 4]. So, you know, when we’re in development we have to create a list of priorities and it has been hard to kind of fit that into that list, but we’re hopefully starting to see that on the list now.”

Source

So Miyamoto pretty much let the game out of the bag early since it does not seem like it's close to done at all. Of course maybe it is done and there holding it out so that the Nx has more then just Breath of the Wild.

Maybe they just stopped when the game was close to completion and had the team focusing on something else that they felt was more important while not paying much attention to Pikmin 4? And now they're working on it full time. That's what it seems like he's trying to say, although that would be a bit odd. Either way I'm just so incredibly happy this game still exists, I love Pikmin so much.

Miyamoto had this to say on Pikmin 4:

I've been told not to share anything about this from PR, but I can tell you it is progressing.

I was NOT expecting to hear anything about this game at E3 at all, and even if it is just a reconfirmation that the game exists, I'm still so happy it was mentioned. Hoping to see it soon! I need a new Pikmin game.

I think we might see the this finally in a Fall Direct. It might be another title Nintendo is waiting to release until there's some open space on the release schedule.
