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

The name Hey! Pikmin sounds like someone is trying to get your attention before spreading the good word about cute little trinket-collecting critters. If you've been ignoring their pleas up until now, this overview video from Nintendo cove...

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...

Here's a Neat Little Thing to cap off your day from YouTube user Scruffy. It's a dive into Pikmin 2's inner workings to come up with and modify a first-person view in a game that wasn't meant to have one. The results -- even in this still-...

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...

Miyamoto hints that Pikmin 4 was on the backburner

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...

Miyamoto: Star Fox Zero is the most underrated Wii U game

Game Informer recently caught up with famed developer Shigeru Miyamoto, and asked him what the most underrated game on the Wii U was. His answer was somewhat predictable in Star Fox Zero, a passion project that he worked on for many ye...

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...

Pikmin short films look amazing, coming soon to 3DS

When Nintendo first announced they were working on 3 short films about Pikmin, many feared they'd go the route of those Wind Waker from a while back. They weren't exactly bad, but they didn't use original art assets. They were al...
