Pikmin 3 Will Be Like The Original Pikmin


Miyamoto spoke to Games Master Magazine and revealed that Pikmin 3 will be more like the original.

“That’s actually something that all the staff members had to debate over when we were discussing what kind of direction we should take for Pikmin 3. First of all by looking at Pikmin 1 we noticed that it wasn’t a very easy game for people to play, and from time to time they had to feel some stress.”

“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.”

“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. 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.”

What are your thoughts about taking Pikmin back to its roots?

  1. I really hope this means that they’e NOT bring back the day limit and are instead just making the game harder….I honestly far preferred pikmin 2

  2. I too prefererd Pikmin 2 over the original. It felt more user friendly and just simply more fun. Especially with the addition of multiplayer. I hope that is in Pikmin 3. It woudl really be neat if Pikmin 3 was online, but knowing Nintendo, they won’t do that, so I doubt it will be a feature.

  3. I wish Nintendo would stop rehashing old crap and come up with, you know, some innovative SOFTWARE, just like they do their hardware.
    So tired of the same old crap, man.
