Miyamoto wants to take the series back to its original roots.
We have some more details on Pikmin 3, the game that was revealed by Nintendo at E3 this year. There was a new footage revealed by them recently which showed how hostile the land was and how menacing the enemies were, and you really need to have a lot of patience and skills to not get all the Pikmins killed.
According to a new interview by Gamesmaster (Via ONM), it has been revealed that Miyamoto wanted to make the game more like the original one.
“That’s actually something that all the staff members had to debate over when we were discussing what kind of direction we should take for Pikmin 3. First of all by looking at Pikmin 1 we noticed that it wasn’t a very easy game for people to play, and from time to time they had to feel some stress,” he said.
“Our main aim in Pikmin 2 was to get rid of any stress as much as possible, so that it would be very user-friendly. Well, I myself couldn’t agree with that direction perfectly. That kind of nature of Pikmin 1 was exactly what I wanted to reproduce and I was actually intentionally doing so, so that Pikmin 1 could be a strategic game.
“When we started creating Pikmin 3 I gathered the main members who worked on Pikmin 2 and talked about how I thought it was important to get back to the basics of Pikmin 1. Or I should say that half of my job at that time wasn’t just to talk, but rather to persuade them to understand what I intended to do and to agree to my idea.”
