Nintendo making an Animated Pikmin series for the 3DS
Nintendo Creating An Animated Pikmin Series For 3DS

In an interview, Nintendo's Shigeru Miyamoto revealed that the company is working on a series of Pikmin animated shorts to be released digitally on the company's 3DS handheld.
The news came in an article on Polygon, when Miyamoto shows writer Brian Cresente some preview footage of the cartoons.
Miyamoto told Polygon, "They'll be released sometime before the release of Pikmin 3. Possibly as a Nintendo video. If they're popular we could consider selling them."
He continued, "" I didn't want to license our characters out to someone else to create films. Instead, since I used to draw four-panel comics when I was younger, I thought it would be fun to bring a four-panel comic approach to creating video content, so we started work on these Pikmin videos."
The series would likely be distributed to the 3DS via the Nintendo eShop. For more details on the project, read the complete Polygon article.
