Pikmin 3 will be a Wii U title, Shigeru Miyamoto has announced.

The Nintendo talisman revealed that he decided to delay development on the planned Wii threequel and move it over to the system's just-announced successor. He said that he thought the franchise will be especially suited to HD visuals.

No release window was mooted but Miyamoto said that as the framework for the game is already in place it might not be too long into the Wii U's life before the title arrives.

Miyamoto first confirmed a sequel to the GameCube's two Pikmin games was in the works for the Wii back in 2008, though no details were ever released.
