Rumor: Pikmin designer working on original game at Nintendo
Twitter is a great place for people to stay connected and from that, we can often glean information about what people are doing since they’re apt to post about their daily lives. An interesting piece of information has come from Twitter in the form of Tekken producer Katsuhiro Harada discussing Pikmin designer Masamichi Abe. In a reply to a user, Harada stated that Abe was at Nintendo working on an original game.
He is in Nintendo Kyoto now. working on some Nintendo original title RT@2Andrin what happened to Masamichi Abe? Is he retired?

No further information was shared and we don’t know if this is an announced or unannounced title, since the likes of Yarn Yoshi and Kirby: Triple Deluxe are both new and original yet have not made it out the door yet. Do you think Abe is working on a new IP completely, or perhaps something else?
