Pikmin 4 is on the way and "very close to completion"

As if by magic, Shigeru Miyamoto has confirmed the return of those little garden critters, the Pikmin. But not only is Pikmin 4 in development, it's apparently almost finished. In an interview with Eurogamer , Miyamoto said that "It's actually very close to completion. Pikmin teams are always working on the next one."

The fact that it's currently nearing the end of development would suggest that this could be another title for the Wii U rather than the mythical NX that might be entirely disc free. Miyamoto didn't confirm either way in the interview but it's long overdue given that the excellent Pikmin 3 was released on Wii U back in 2013.
