Why does this series take decades to get sequels?

    The fact it even got a third game is a miracle in itself. It has long worn out it's 'gimmick' that 4 is just going to be an easier 3.

      What does that even mean? Each game stands alone and has added things to the formula. Fuck outta here. It's not like there's even any other games like this series

      Nintendo don't have the staff to dedicate to game development, it's why their IP falls to the wayside, look what happened with Metroid, they got a studio willing to work on the games, they've reeeeeleased 2 already.

    Because Miyamoto is LITERALLY the only person who gives a shit about this series.

    Also the team developed the Mario Maker games in the meantime.

      I love the series, it has real potential, but honestly maybe it’s best if it stays where it’s at, the lore is amazing, and I think normies would feel awkward knowing that the game seemingly takes place on a post-man modern earth. Anyway, we need more Pikmin, like how Game 1 had so many, including the parasites, and we need more colors and a new base color, I for one think a Brown Pikmin that’s speciality is digging and fighting burrowed enemies would fit nicely with the Red-Blue-Yellow combo, but again some more super odd ball ones like White (the best) and Purple (Hercules) would be nice too.

    Miyamoto said Pikmin 3 was "almost done" for like 7 out of those 9 years.

    And he's been saying that Pikmin 4 is "almost done" for like 7 out of those 10 years as well.

    Because Miyamoto is the lead creator behind hit but he's been far busier with other shit that isn't video games for the past 20 years.
    Progress is slow when he has to jump between Amusement park construction and animated movie production.

    Pikmin 2 was already the peak and I think they explored everything that they could with this gameplay formula. 3 is just a lesser 1 with better visuals

    This is every Nintendo IP now that isn't fire emblem, we have to wait the better part of a decade for anything that isn't shovelware. The short dev cycle thing tendies spread was complete lie except for Pokemon and we see what happens with that

    Because nobody askes for this series, other than a loud minority.

    The only thing that makes this game get sequels is because of Miyamoto being literally autistic about it and treating the series as his pet project. Its already proven by the fact that Pikmin is literally the only Nintendo IP to get cameos in Super Nintendo Parks in Universal Parks since its helmed by Miyamoto himself.

      And its not forget that it has a fucking Mobile game for some reason. In which nobody gives a fuck about since its more of a barebones health app with a gimmick, than anything remotely interesting.

        I tried it in an attempt to get myself more active, but lost interest once the flowers vanished after a week and there was absolutely no content to look forward to. Pokemon Go was better for it overall, but it's annoying when I live far from downtown and run out of balls quickly with few pokestops nearby.
        I just need to have more self discipline instead of relying on games to motivate me I guess.

      He might've been referring it being on WiiU before being put on hold when WiiU was cancelled, leaving any WiiU related projects on hold or cancelled. Then it probably ended up being completely reworked when Switch was into few years of its lifespan.

        Yeah that's what I figured too, it's just weird Miyamoto would say something like that when he'd usually be one of the few people to know "Yeah Wiiu is dead scrap any project and work on Switch" early on

    why has nobody made a totally-not-pikmin game yet? We have all sorts of metroid, pokemon, and mario ripoffs. I'd think pikmin would warrant at least one autistic fan game.

      pikmin is too precious to try to clone or mess with I think at least is the general consensus, too cute of a game so instead of messing with it we just leave it alone
