Review: Hey! Pikmin

Pikmin is one of those series that probably wouldn't still exist under a different banner. It's one of Shigeru Miyamoto's babies, an idea he fostered by playing in the wilderness as a child. One he's going to see through until the end. I di...

Hey! Pikmin looks decent in this overview video

Hey! Pikmin's amiibo functionality is neat, but basic

Nintendo loves to shove in amiibo support with nearly every game it releases now-a-days, so it was no surprise that Hey! Pikmin was going to end up with the feature. If you thought this was going to be reminiscent of Yoshi's Woolly World an...

Hey! Pikmin comes from the studio behind Yoshi's New Island

My expectations aren't high for Hey! Pikmin, but I'm holding out slight hope that it'll be enjoyable for what it is: a spinoff. That said, it's now confirmed (by way of the Australian ratings board) that the 3DS game is the work of Yoshi's ...

Hey! Pikmin heading to 3DS on July 28

Speeding right through today's Nintendo Direct, the company has announced a July 28, 2017 launch for Hey! Pikmin, a game we've seen footage of but didn't have a name for until now. Essentially, it's the standard series formula but reworked ...

A new Pikmin title is coming to the 3DS

A new Pikmin title was announced during today's Nintendo Direct, but it's not quite the same as its predecessors. Eschewing the traditional view, the 3DS adventure is a sidescrolling game, but retains the core ideas. The video shows Ol...

So uh Pikmin 4 guys? It was supposedly "close to completion" last June, Miyamoto then confirmed, but priorities have changed. Speaking to Miyamoto at E3 this year, he offered the following statement: "Yes, you are right, and we&rs...

I'm sad Pikmin 4 skipped E3, but this 'leak' cheers me up

Now that I'm home from E3 and rested enough to feel like a human again, I have remembered to check in on Pikmin 4, a game Shigeru Miyamoto said was "very close to completion" back in July 2015. Aside from that initial out-of-nowhere acknow...

Pikmin 4 is happening, 'very close to completion'

As reported by Eurogamer, Pikmin 4 is happening. It's not just in development, but it's actually "very close" to being done. The word comes directly from Miyamoto himself back in July, which has just been made public. No platform has b...

Pikmin x Chibi-Robo! would be too cute

There are a few GameCube titles I regret missing. Cubivore is one of them. Chibi-Robo! is another. The latter series has managed to live on through handheld spinoffs, and there's a new on the way. The games star a miniature robot who, come ...

Ducklings and Pikmin need to watch out for storm drains

Don't tell Jonathan, but I still need to watch Pikmin Short Movies. I'm a bad Pikmin fan. But looking at these pieces of art created using Art Academy: SketchPad makes me feel better. They were made for a Miiverse challenge put forth by Nin...

If the main quest of an open-world RPG today had the sole purpose of the PC becoming enlightened in all virtues, would that be considered too constrained?
