That One Time… Looking Back on Weird Nintendo Moments

That one time Link had pink hair If you’ve ever played the SNES classic A Link to the Past, you’re aware that the sprite for Link looks a little… unusual. This is the only version of the game where instead of his standard blonde or brown hair, link is sporting a pink ‘doo. Many people argue that the pink is part of his hat, but a sideways view of the sprite quickly reveals ...

LOL: Miyamoto channels his inner Bulblord

Miyamoto took some time away from E3 2013 to do a short impression of an enemy from the Pikmin universe. In short, it’s one of the strangest, yet entertaining six seconds of video one will see today. Enjoy! Special thanks to Kevin Cassidy of Go Nintendo TV for finding this gem.

Shigeru Miyamoto is working on 3D Pikmin animation

Shigeru Miyamoto has announced he is working on a series of animated 3D shorts based on the GameCube debuting series; Pikmin. Nintendo gave a taste of what to expect to the media, showing a clip of main protagonist captain Olimar blending Pikmin into a large smoothie, but is then comically revealed to be just (PikPik?) carrots.

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.” ...

Breaking: Pikmin was Wii title now for Wii U

Miyamoto just dropped a bomb. Pikmin was a Wii title but was canned and is now coming to Wii U. Miyamoto wasn’t supposed to talk about it, but he felt like it so he did! Good news for Nintendo fans, bad news for everyone waiting for Pikmin Wii. Apparently we won’t have to wait long for the game, maybe a Wii U launch title perhaps? Who knows! I for one am certainly excited though!

Miyamoto: This is NOT News

So Pikmin 3? Yeah, they’re working on it, but Miyamoto and company stress that this is not the news we should take away from the show today. So, just keep in mind, Pikmin 3 is coming, but it’s not news. Pay no attention to this.

Wait…What’s Left?Looking Forward to E3

Before the dust settles after this morning’s press event, I am already thinking about E3.  With almost all of Nintendo’s loose ends tied up this morning, that leaves me thinking about what they didn’t tell us: the second half of the year.

Nintendo comments on lack of Pikmin 3 at E3 2009

Miyamoto held a private round table event earlier in which the question of why there was no Pikmin 3 at E3 was brought up? He kindly replied… “I’m sorry. Unfortunately we haven’t been able to expand the team size very much, because we’ve been working on so many different games that we’ve shown off at the show. So the team is working very hard, but it’s a bit of a small team…The bas...
