Shigeru Miyamoto is debuting his Pikmin short films at Tokyo International Film Festival

Entitled The Night Juicer, Treasures in a Bottle, and Occupational Hazards.

Shigeru Miyamoto will be debuting Pikmin Short Movies, an anthology of three Pikmin short films he produced, at this year's The Tokyo International Film Festival running from 25th-31st October.

As reported by Variety, the three films are entitled The Night Juicer, Treasures in a Bottle, and Occupational Hazards.

The Night Juicer is a short in "which Captain Olimar makes his favorite juice," Treasures in a Bottle's storyline is described as "Pikmin meet a strange treasure" and Occupational Hazards is "an adventure at a construction site."

Shigeru Miyamoto will give a presentation alongside Nobuo Kawakami, producer-trainer at Studio Ghibli and CEO of Japanese media company Dwango.

Video games typically have a difficult time adapting to the big screen, but the Pikmin are a charismatic bunch, so hopefully their cute, albeit dangerous, exploits will make for a pleasurable viewing experience. They sure are adorable anyway.
