Pikmin, Pikmin 2 Director Working on New Nintendo IP

Posted on November 26, 2013 AT 01:57pm

Pikmin and Pikmin 2 director Masamichi Abe is working on a new IP for Nintendo, according to a tweet from Tekken project leader Katsuhiro Harada.

“He [Masamichi Abe] is in Nintendo Kyoto now,” Harada wrote in response to a fan question inquiring about Abe. “Working on some Nintendo original title.”

After wrapping up Pikmin 2, Abe relocated to Seattle, Washington, and oversaw the development of 2006’s Metroid Prime: Hunters and 2009’s Mario vs. Donkey Kong: Minis March Again. Both DS titles were developed by Nintendo Software Technology, a studio located in Nintendo of America’s Redmond, Washington headquarters.
