Miyamoto bringing new character, Pikmin 3 soon

During a recent shareholder Q&A, Shigeru Miyamoto shared that although he had been occupied with several projects, his mind was still churning. “I get more ideas when I’m busy,” said the Nintendo legend , “and with that meaning, this is an extremely good condition now.”

This is a good thing for us Nintendo fans, as it will lead to “something new” in the next year.

As he points out, “It’s been nearly 10 years since I made the Pikmin character, so I feel this is the year where I must at long last make a new character. This is as far as I’ll answer today.”

Speaking of Pikmin, he says that the Pikmin 3 is “progressing extremely well.” No word on a time frame for release, although Miyamoto admits he has “to finish Pikmin quickly” due to “present promises.”
