The Pikmin series currently consists of three games, Pikmin and Pikmin 2 (and their counterparts in the New Play Control! range on the Nintendo Wii) and Pikmin 3. These games have been scored well by critics, the second generally higher than the first. There have been a number of rumours in the past concerning a Pikmin 3 being in production for the Wii, and on July 15, 2008 at a private conference, Shigeru Miyamoto confirmed that Pikmin 3 is in production. The total number of sales for the series is approximately 3.1 million.
Elements from the series also play parts in a number of other Nintendo games, most notably Super Smash Bros. Brawl, in which "Olimar & Pikmin" is a playable character, as well as a Pikmin stage and multiple soundtracks and trophies.
