Nintendo has dropped an unexpectedly big announcement early this Labor Day morning. Speaking to Eurogamer this past July, ShigeruÂ Miyamoto dropped a few words with big news. In an interview, he confirmed that Pikmin 4 isn’t just in development but “very close to completion.” In a seperate statement, Nintendo confirmed the development of the game, but did not indicate any further details as to release window or platform. While this statement was made in July, the news was revealed just this morning.
The release window, as well as the platform being worked on, is all complete speculaton at this time. Nintendo’s next-generation console, codenamed the NX, is still in the shadows, with details of the system’s existence not expected to be revealed until late 2016.
