The official site of the Tokyo International Film Festival announced the premiere of a 3D short animated film titled Pikmin Short Movie. The film will be a compilation of three short stories and is from the Nintendo Pikmin game series. The festival will be held on October 23-31.

The animated film is a project that Shigeru Miyamoto, a Japanese video game designer, created to explore the characters in a way his games could not.

Shigeru Miyamoto is most notable for his co-creations of several Nintendo franchises, including Mario.

I don't not think that I will like it from what I saw and beside I'm not really that interested in short anime too.

There's no "anime style". That does not exist.
I just went ahead and deleted my previous comment, wouldn't want to start a war over it due to people not understanding me.

I'm looking forward to this either way.

Good guy Uber_Dewber, deletes his own comment to prevent butthurts that might follow.
