Miyamoto Says 'Pikmin 3' Is Going to be More Like 'Pikmin 1'

Mario creator Shigeru Miyamoto has reportedly revealed in an interview with magazine GamesMaster that Pikmin 3 is going to be more like the original Pikmin than Pikmin 2. That almost certainly means the return of the time limit, which was removed in Pikmin 2, making it a less stressful but ultimately less rewarding game.

His statements are below:

Our main aim in Pikmin 2 was to get rid of any stress as much as possible, so that it would be very user-friendly. Well, I myself couldn't agree with that direction perfectly. That kind of nature of Pikmin 1 was exactly what I wanted to reproduce and I was actually intentionally doing so, so that Pikmin 1 could be a strategic game.

When we started creating Pikmin 3 I gathered the main members who worked on Pikmin 2 and talked about how I thought it was important to get back to the basics of Pikmin 1. Or I should say that half of my job at that time wasn't just to talk, but rather to persuade them to understand what I intended to do and to agree to my idea.

So is this good or bad news? Which Pikmin game do you prefer?
