It should have been a Wii game. I waited 8 years for this game. I am not spending $350+ to play it anytime soon.
That is all.
Lies, you cannot resist the call of the Pikmin.
Lol, Pikmin? What is that game about anyway, I've never played one. I only remember the characters from SSBros. Brawl. Wii U imo should have just been a damn add-on rather then a full fledged new console.
And next you're going to say the same thing for a Star Fox and F-Zero game.

Pikmin 1 came out around launch in 2001 and Pikmin 2 came out in 2004. Both great fun strategy games.
It took them 8 goddamn years to make Pikmin 3 for some reason.
8 years are you serious?
Holy shit im getting old..
We waited 10 years for Mega Man Legends 3, and then the Capcommunists cancel the game, making a lot of fans mad.
I do agree that Pikmin 3 should have been on Wii and not Wii U Originally Posted by Gliscor'd Pikmin was one of the only new franchises Nintendo created for the Gamecube. Pikmin 1 came out around launch in 2001 and Pikmin 2 came out in 2004. Both great fun strategy games.
It took them 8 goddamn years to make Pikmin 3 for some reason. Rarely, if ever, do we get a completely new franchise from Nintendo, The last new franchises Nintendo made (that I can think of, correct me if I am wrong) other than Pikmin were Pokemon (1997) and Dobutsu no Mori (Animal Forest) (2001)
For those of you who don't know about "Dobutsu no Mori", you're probably are more familiar with it's American version, "Animal Crossing". Dobutsu was one of the last games released for the Nintendo 64, it was originally released only in Japan for the Nintendo 64 in 2001, but by that time, the Nintendo GameCube was already out, so the game did not sell very well until being re-released as "Dobutsu no Mori Plus" on the GameCube, due to the game being extremely heavy on Japanese culture and references, let alone the language, NOA had to heavily rework the game to replace those Japanese culture references and holidays with American ones, it was released in early 2003 as "Animal Crossing", and the Americanized version was released in Japan in the summer as "Dobutsu no Mori e Plus", after four different versions of the exact same game, the American Animal Crossing became the basis for the later games in the series, starting with Wild World.
Nah, there's also Golden Sun (2001) and Starfy (2000), Nintendogs (2005), WarioWare (2003), the Wii Series (2006), Brain Age (2005), and Rhythm Heaven (2006).
They aren't as big name, but I don't see why they wouldn't count as new franchises.
I can actually agree with you, Scott. Pikmin 3 could have been a Wii game. The official E3 report stated that the characters in Pikmin 3 are operated with the Nunchuk and Wii Remote (w/ MotionPlus). You'll only need the Wii U Game Pad as a map/touch screen. That map function could have been easily placed somewhere on the main screen.
I'm not a fan of the franchise myself, but I do like some of the innovations that Miyamoto have implemented into this third installment.
Everyone saying that Pikmin 3 should've been on the Wii, didn't you also say that BW2 should've been on the 3DS?
