It's a thing. We know almost nothing about it, which means it's rampant speculation time! What do you want to see? And on what console? Discuss!

It surely has to be for wii U, doesn't it? The fact they are saying that it's very close to completion makes me think it can't be for anything else.

I'd love it on Wii U - the three Pikmin games play brilliantly with the Wii remote, but having the added map on the GamePad makes for a perfect set-up. That said, even if it is very close to completion, is there even going to be an auidence for it on Wii U in six-nine months time? Will the Wii U still be a current, relevant thing next year? The New 3DS could be a better shout. That's needing something - anything! - to justify it's existence. I can't imagine that it's sold all that amazingly either. What's it's killer app? Might it be Pikmin 4?

All things considered though, I'm personally ready to move on to the next Nintendo. I know the rest of 2015 doesn't look too bad, but there's a distinct sense of 'GameCube 2006' about Nintendo gaming at the moment. If Nintendo Gamer were still about, it would be a pamphlet. So, I'd have Pikmin 4 launch on NX, if I might "Pik My Platform".

I'd be up for it as a Wii U game first and foremost. I really don't want the NX any time soon (especially if it's a hybrid/handheld) and after how astonishingly beautiful 3 was I'd rather have it on a console with the oomph and screensize to dazzle.

I'd like it on NX to continue my trend of playing each pikmin on a different machine; GameCube > Wii > Wii u > NX. That said, if it's as sublime as the first three, I'll take it on anything.

The Wii U is most likely, surely? Having said that, I'd be fine with it being a 3DS game - weirdly, that'll make me more likely to buy it. Thumbs Up!

Imagine it will be a Wii-U game to fill the gap between Xmas and Zelda. Or to bolster the Xmas line-up.

It certainly does feel like the last year for the Wii-U. I don't think the N64 or Gamecube had it as bad as last month, where the Wii-U got one game.

There was a year in which the GameCube had Sonic Riders as it's big Easter release. I'm sure there was also the odd occasion when N64 Magazine would have something like Scooby Doo's Mysterious Mishevious Hyper Bollocks as their main review, then give it 23%.

Imagine if Pikmin 4 was to fill the gap between Xmas and Zelda though. This year all we've had (I think) Captain Toad, Mario Party 10, Splatoon, Kirby Paintbrush, Devil's Third and Yoshi's Woolly World. That's rough, but Pikmin 4 on it's puff - as amazing as it's probably going to be - would be really harsh.

To be fair, Splatoon has absolutely justified owning a Wii U by itself

I'll cast my vote in the Wii U prediction camp, but with a dash of possible dual release on both the U and the NX.

Soon for Nintendo is like 6-12 month's away and this year feels like Wii U's last with a odd few like SMTxFE early next year in the west.

That I'm going NX launch title for Holiday 2016.

Mobile. F2P.
Pikmin 4 - Pik Your Platform Troll-face

EDIT: Sorry, serious answer: I reckon 3DS, but I'm hoping WiiU. I played Pikmin 3's mission with the gamepad, but was convinced to give the (usually dreaded) remote/nunchuck a go for multiplayer, and it works really well.

There is the potential for a solid ipad/tablet game in Pikkers, just no microtransactions please.

I would guess handheld though.

The remote and nunchuk is the best controller ever.

It works in Pikmin 3, because you can point at the screen, chuck your Pikmin there, and then rest that hand again. However, in Metroid Prime you have to keep your hand steadily pointing at the screen to stop Samus from tripping over her own feet. And the frickin' cable that whips around with motion controlled things...

Wait, what is this topic about again?
