leave a comment »

Legendary games designer Shigeru Miyamoto has confessed that he’s really enjoying working on Pikmin 3 for Wii U. The game was originally developed for Wii, but Miyamoto says that having high definition graphics and a touch screen at his disposal is enabling him to create a game he’s truly happy with.

“Originally, I was making Pikmin 3 to be launched on the Wii platform. Because the Wii U is capable of HD quality pictures, and will be accompanied by the subscreen on your hand. I thought that I would be able to make a Pikmin that was closer to my ideal. I am now actually enjoying myself, working on the game.
