What do we know about Pikmin 4?

Pikmin 4 has been in development since 2015, however it may not be a high priority title for Nintendo. Talking to Gamerant, Shigeru Miyamoto said: “We’re working on Pikmin 4. So, you know, when we’re in development we have to create a list of priorities and tit has been hard to kind of fit that into that list, but we’re hopefully starting to see that on the list now.”

In 2015 he said to Eurogamer that "It’s actually very close to completion. Pikmin teams are always working on the next one."

Now we're well into 2019 and still have no official word on when we can expect the game. We're hoping that Nintendo finally let us know when Pikmin 4 will be released in one of their upcoming Nintendo Direct sessions.
