Pikmin 3 wasn't mentioned during the majority of this morning's Nintendo Direct, but that does not mean the Big N has forgotten about the game! It's not going to be in development for another five years! The game is coming to your Wii U this summer.

To get the Pikmin hype train on the tracks, Nintendo has released a special E3 trailer for the game, along with dozens of new screenshots and concept art pieces of the game. We get our first look at competitive multiplayer here, along with some more insight into exploring, combat, and collection. In addition to this, an interview with Shigeru Miyamoto has been released by Nintendo. Hearing developer commentary on the game's creation gives us a behind-the-scenes look at the Pikmin genesis.

Take a look at the trailer, interview, and pictures right here!
