‘Pikmin’ Movie Coming to Tokyo Festival

Amidst the foggy independents and self-satisfied artist wannabes, Shigeru Miyamoto — creator and developer extraordinaire; the man responsible for nearly every popular Nintendo franchise — will be present at the Tokyo International Film Festival with Nintendo’s latest effort: “Pikmin Short Movies,” a film produced by Miyamoto in context of research for the company.

The compilation film will feature three shorts: “The Night Juicer,” “Occupational Hazards” and “Treasures in a Bottle.” While the titles sound more like Three Stooges sketches than any Pikmin adaptation, the quirky stories will follow the antics of Captain Olimar as he juices, some construction site troubles and a strange treasure.

The festival will take place at Roppongi Hills on October 25-31, 2014.
