Here’s an odd one for you – Pikmin will be appearing in three shorts at this years Tokyo film festival.
According to Variety, Miyamoto (creator of the Pikmin franchise) has created three shorts featuring the adorable little Pikmin and will be presenting them at the Tokyo Film Festival.
The Pikmin series actually seems to lend itself quite well to film, the likeable characters are colourful enough to be interesting for viewers, and obviously present a great merchandising opportunity for Nintendo, should they ever decide to cash in with a feature film.
The last entry in the Pikmin series (which dates all the way back to 2001!) was released in 2013 and the Pikmin will also be appearing in this years Super Smash Bros. for the Wii U and Nintendo 3DS.
