Our tiny friends may have skipped a generation, but now we know for sure they are coming back.
Pikmin for Wii U will be at E3 this year, according to both Shigeru Miyamoto and a Nintendo representative.
Earlier today we reported that Nintendo will be revealing a new Wii U Mario game at E3 this year. In an interview with the Spanish journal El Mundo, Miyamoto explained that the next Pikmin game will be at E3.
Kotaku followed up with a Nintendo representative who said "In a recent interview, Mr. Miyamoto confirmed that a new Pikmin game will be shown at the E3 Expo in June. He believes that anyone who has played Pikmin games in the past will enjoy playing."
The next iteration of Pikmin was already known to be coming to Wii U, but when it would be showing up was always a little up in the air. With an appearance at E3 2012 and its many years of development it is likely that the games launch will come around the launch of the Wii U.
