Today’s Nintendo Switch news: Pikmin 4 still “progressing” according to Shigery Miyamoto, but also…
- LEGO Worlds
- Fate/EXTELLA: The Umbral Star
- “Playing to Win” Trailer
A couple of years ago, Shigeru Miyamoto casually announced Pikmin 4, explaining that it was “close to completion”. Fast forward to 2017, and that mysterious Pikmin 4 is nowhere to be seen. And no, it’s not Hey! Pikmin, as confirmed by Shigeru Miyamoto to Eurogamer:
I’ve been told not to share anything about this from PR, but I can tell you it is progressing.”
Since Hey! Pikmin comes out in less than a month in Japan, it would be more than surprising for Miyamoto to make such a statement if it really was the game announced back in 2015. The question remains: when will we finally get to see that game? One thing’s for sure, though: chances that it’s on anything but the Nintendo Switch are extremely low.
Earlier this week, in a press release, Warner Bros. revealed that the Nintendo Switch version of LEGO Worlds would be released this Fall in Europe and North America. There will be two versions:
- physical, that includes two bonus packs of premium DLC (including Classic Space)
- digital version, with just the base game (but with DLC available separately on the Nintendo eShop).
