No Nintendo Direct? No problem as another major Switch game getting announced ‘this week’

No Nintendo Direct? No problem as another major Switch game getting announced ‘this week’

And it looks like this week Nintendo could be dropping another announcement out-of-the-blue that will surely go down a treat.

It has been claimed by tweeter @LeakyPanda that the Big N are about to unveil a Pikmin game for the Nintendo Switch.

The last time Nintendo fans saw a mainline Pikmin game released was back in 2013 with the arrival of Pikmin 3 on the Wii U.

Since then there have been plenty of rumblings of a Pikmin 4 being in development, with a report back in 2015 saying it was “very close to completion”.

It is unclear whether the upcoming Pikmin announcement will be the unveiling – at last – of Pikmin 4, or whether it will be a Pikmin 3 remaster for the Switch.

Either way it looks like fans won’t have too much longer to wait to find out, with the reveal happening “soon” and possibly dropping “today” – Wednesday May 20.
