Miyamoto reveals there's a Pikmin Anime in the works
And no, that’s not a screen from it (but it is an awesome concept by KittyDemonChild). In an interview with 4Gamer translated by KameDaniRyu, Miyamoto revealed that he’s been working on a Pikmin anime for the past two years. An excerpt from the interview:
To that end I am currently working on putting all the elements that can’t be conveyed only by a game together in one package and am experimenting with making a Pikmin anime. The truth is for the past two years, I’ve been spending more time on the Pikmin anime than the game. (laughs) We’d like people to develop a more fond connection with the Pikmin themselves. In fact, at last year’s E3 many of the Pikmin things we passed around were made from elements we used for the Pikmin anime..Right now we are considering how to release it. In any case, we’re still devoting energy to Pikmin.
This came out of nowhere! Are you interested in seeing a Pikmin anime? This may be just the thing to make me fall head over heels with the series. If Nintendo does release it stateside, I just hope there’s a way to watch it on Wii U and 3DS. Not being able to do so would be a missed opportunity. [❤]
