Mario won't be the only Nintendo IP making an appearance on the Wii U at this year's E3. Nintendo has also confirmed today that Pikmin 3 will finally be shown on the new console in June.
Nintendo said in a statement:
"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."
Pikmin has been dormant for nearly a decade. The last game in the series, Pikmin 2, made it out for the GameCube in 2004.
Nintendo - specifically Shigeru Miyamoto - has teased Pikmin 3 for several years (see here
... and here
). We'll be seeing the project at long last!
