E3: Pikmin 3 is officially coming to Wii U

There's been so much not-talk out of Nintendo regarding Pikmin 3 over the last few years, it's maddening. After hearing nothing at Nintendo's E3 2011 press conference today, I had all but given up hope.

The lack of substantial information has caused many of us to believe the third installment would skip a Wii release and jump to Nintendo's new console -- what we now know as Wii U. As confirmed tonight during the company's roundtable session, this will indeed be happening.

Pikmin 3 was in development for Wii, but the high-definition graphics and new controller of the Wii U made it the better choice. Progress was far enough along that Shigeru Miyamoto says there shouldn't be too long of a wait for the game. Thank eff for that! Looks like I'll have to buy a Wii U now.
