In an E3 question and answer roundtable just a few hours ago, Shigeru Miyamoto confirmed that he is currently working on a new Pikmin game, presumably for the Wii.

The crowd at the roundtable laughed, which is an odd reaction, since I would have most likely jumped up and down and ripped off my shirt. (As you can tell, I am a huge Pikmin fan and was actually hoping for a Pikmin 3 announcement at the Nintendo press conference more than anything.)
