Pikmin Helped Inspire Halo Wars Developers

Wasn’t it one of the Halo developers that belittled Miyamoto’s success not long ago? Well, it looks like they’ve made a drastic shift in that notation. During an interview at PAX the lead designer of Halo Wars, Graeme Devine, claimed one game brought to life by Nintendo’s poster boy helped him and his team create this upcoming XBox 360 title.

“I really think we have cracked that nut,” he said. “We look at all of the (control systems) for console RTS games, the one we learned the most from was Pikmin. That was a very good strategy game.”

Well, if Halo Wars has the control methods found in Pikmin, the game should be a joy to play.
