Nintendo president Satoru Iwata has announced there will be a Nintendo Direct dedicated to Pikmin 3 in Japan June 26th. Given that Pikmin 3 will be released in Japan before anywhere else in the world, Nintendo wants to shine the spotlight on the upcoming title for the Wii U. Fans can expect to see more gameplay footage while Hitoshi Matsumoto and the game’s creator Shigeru Miyamoto discuss it thoroughly.
Iwata stated that it will be a lot different than the previous Nintendo Direct presentations, and that fans can look forward to having major concerns addressed and answered. Despite the event being held in Japan there will be a stream going on that can be watched right here for those of us not native to Japan.
Iwata listed Nintendo Direct to be hosted on Nintendo Homepage, Nico Nico Live, and Ustream. Hitoshi Matsumoto will be the interviewing Pikmin creator Shigeru Miyamoto. This was a statement Matsumoto being a Japanese comedian and Pikmin already being an expressionistic comedy should make for an interesting watch, so tune in June 26th.
