Back in 2015, legendary game developer Shigeru Miyamoto stated that Pikmin 4 was nearing the final stages of development. Since then however, there’s been no information about the release date for the game. But was Pikmin 4 secretly rebooted in 2019?
It’s 2021 now and Pikmin 4 still hasn’t been shown publicly despite being so close to completion in 2015.
Ironically, it’s the 6th anniversary for Pikmin 4. As commented by Nintendo streamer Chuggaconroy, it’s the 6th anniversary of Pikmin 4 being “very close to completion!”

Various respected Reserera users have commented that Pikmin 4 was actually rebooted in 2019.
There’s currently no evidence to confirm this rumor. Nintendo insiders are suspecting Pikmin 4 will finally be making a return to the public eye towards the end of next year. Sadly, all of this is just rumor at this point.
A reboot would explain why there’s been so little news on the game since it was announced in 2015.
