Nintendo’s Shigeru Miyamoto has produced an animated short based on the Pikmin series of games, and will be debuting the film next month at the 27th Tokyo International Film Festival.

Titled simply “Pikmin Short Movies”, the film comprises three episodes:

  1. ‘The Night Juicer,’ which sees Captain Olimar making his favorite juice
  2. ‘Treasures in a Bottle,’ in which Pikmin meet a strange treasure
  3. ‘Occupational Hazards,’ which involves a big adventure at a construction site.

The screening occurs on October 25, 2014 at the festival, and Miyamoto himself will be present to give a talk with Nobuo Kawakami, Chairman of Dwango and a producer-trainee at Studio Ghibli, at TOHO Cinemas Nihonbashi.

Do you like the sound of the animated Pikmin stories? We can only hope hat the shorts are distributed online sometime after the event, and we’ll let you know once any further information is available on where to see these.
