[dropcap]I[/dropcap]t has been several months since Nintendo first announced Pikmin for the Nintendo 3DS. The game was set to release in 2017, and Nintendo has recently reiterated that the game indeed is still slated for a release later this year. Furthermore Miyamoto producer of Mario, Pikmin and more has said that he believes Pikmin to be the next Mario. He also mentions that Pikmin 4 is nearly completed and will most likely be a Nintendo Switch title.
It is with most certainty to say that Nintendo still strongly believes in the Pikmin Video Game Series and will continue to support the IP. There have only been very few details on Pikmin for 3DS. Reggie, President of Nintendo North America, has also mentioned in a recent interview, that Nintendo plans to bring all major IPs to Nintendo Switch over time, this would include Pikmin for Nintendos new hybrid console.
