In addition to a new Super Mario Bros. entry, you can expect to see the debut of the long-awaited Pikmin 3 at this year’s E3, also.

The news came as part of the same interview with the Spanish newspaper El Mundo that the Mario announcement came out of. Shigeru Miyamoto confirmed the game has been moved on to the Wii U platform.

…as we’ve been working on Wii U hardware and I’ve been looking at those high-definition graphics and that beautiful controller, I’ve been getting the feeling I wanted to see Pikmin there instead.

Nintendo confirmed the comments to Game Informer yesterday. “In a recent interview, Mr. Miyamoto confirmed that a new Pikmin game will be shown at the E3 Expo in June,” the company said. “He believes that anyone who has played Pikmin games in the past will enjoy playing.”

Are you more excited for a Mario Wii U game or more Pikmin at last?

Thanks to Whiggy for the tip.

    This pretty much guarantees that I will want a Wii U or that I will be spending a lot of time at someone’s house who DOES get a Wii U.

    I <3 Pikmin :).

    On another note, I hope they don’t change the characters.  Olimar is my favorite, and I’ll be very upset if I don’t get to play as him again.  Louis was cool too.  I didn’t care for the President.  I also don’t want them to change too much about the game in general, to make it all “new” and whatnot.  I loved the old ones, so don’t change everything I loved!!!  I hope they keep Red, Blue, and Yellow Pikmin, and I would like to see at least the Purple Pikmin come back since those things were so USEFUL!!  I’m sure they’ll introduce even more new Pikmin, and I hope they add to the game in interesting ways like White and Purple did.  I’d like to see Green.  I feel like they could do something useful and cool with Green Pikmin.  Maybe even Orange or Black or something.  They also need a new story as to why Olimar would be going back to the Pikmin Planet.  Perhaps he decides to move there with his family??  That would be funny.

    Anyways, I have very high hopes and expectations for this game.  Pikmin was fantastic (one of my all-time favorite games) and Pikmin 2 was even better.  Pikmin 3 should raise the bar even higher.
