A couple of years ago, Shigeru Miyamoto stated that Pikmin 4 was “very close to completion.” However, we’ve yet to see the game at all, and some have been concerned that Hey! Pikmin was the project he was referring to.
Eurogamer caught up with Miyamoto at E3 this week and asked for an update on Pikmin 4. There’s no need to fear, as Pikmin 4 and Hey! Pikmin are separate.
Regarding Pikmin 4, Miyamoto teased: “I’ve been told not to share anything about this from PR, but I can tell you it is progressing.” Nintendo also told the site separately, “We can confirm that Pikmin 4 is in development but that is all we can confirm at present.”
