Pikmin 1 nature "exactly what I wanted to reproduce," says Shiggy.

Pikmin 3 producer Shigeru Miyamoto has said that the upcoming Wii U sequel will recreate the “stress” of the first Pikmin.

“When we started creating Pikmin 3, I gathered the main members who worked on Pikmin 2 and talked about how I thought it was important to get back to the basics of Pikmin 1,” Miyamoto told Official Nintendo Magazine UK. “Or I should say that half of my job at that time wasn’t just to talk, but rather to persuade them to understand what I intended to do and to agree to my idea.

“Our main aim in Pikmin 2 was to get rid of any stress as much as possible, so that it would be very user-friendly. Well, I myself couldn’t agree with that direction perfectly. That kind of nature of Pikmin 1 was exactly what I wanted to reproduce and I was actually intentionally doing so, so that Pikmin 1 could be a strategic game.”

Pikmin 3 is due for Wii U this spring.

            Really?
            I didnt realize TankTankTank, Zombie-U, and Mario-U were available on PS3!?!

            I also have tried playing the oh so amazing Rayman Legends on my PS3 but it just wont boot up.

            Im no Nintendo fan and the Wii-U certainly has its flaws but it is a huge step in the right direction for them and I for one am enjoying the exclusive content thus far.

            Tryto be less jaded about our mutual hobby.

            He-Man is the name on MiiVerse btw.

    You might read this article as saying Pikmin 3 is going to be more difficult than Pikmin 2. If so, that’s not a bad thing at all.
