Miyamoto confirms new Pikmin title in development

An announcement that would have made a lot of people feel better about Nintendo’s press conference was revealed yesterday evening during Nintendo’s Developer Roundtable event. Nintendo mastermind Shigeru Miyamoto confirmed that a new Pikmin title is on its way during a Q&A session at the end of the roundtable event.

Pikmin aside, the event mostly talked about the “big” three titles revealed during Nintendo’s press conference: Animal Crossing: City Folk, Wii Sport Resort, and Wii Music. The ability to transfer your character from Animal Crossing: Wild Word to City Folk was confirmed by AC producer Katsuya Eguchi.

During the Wii Sports Resort Q&A Nintendo’s brass artfully dogged some questions concerning the Wii MotionPlus and whether it was an admission by Nintendo that the original Wii-mote’s sensitivity was sub-par. Finally, while talking about Wii Music, Miyamoto mentioned that, of the 50 songs available in the game, most of them will be public-domain tracks but some will be “popular” licensed music. Hopefully that means we’ll get something a little catchier than “Yankee Doodle Dandy.”

While currently an advertising major, he has high hopes of writing professionally about this digital time waster we love so much. He considers himself an easy going guy and will try just about anything with an open mind. Most of his gaming time is split between the PC and 360, though he does enjoy all of the major consoles. His favorite genre would be either fighters or turn-based strategy titles, while conversely harboring a dislike for most MMORPGs.
