LOS ANGELES — Legendary game designer Shigeru Miyamoto kicked off Nintendo’s showcase at the Electronic Entertainment Expo today with a description of his latest game, Pikmin 3 for the Wii U.

Miyamoto did a demo that shows how good the Wii U is at rendering lots of the cute little garden creatures in a preview at Nintendo’s booth in the Los Angeles Convention Center. Pikmin 3 has been in the works for a long time, but Miyamoto began adapting it to the Wii U a couple of years ago because he felt he finally had the processing power required to do the game he envisioned.

Here’s a video of Miyamoto’s talk. Nintendo’s Bill Trinen provides the translation.
