"US7762893" (also published as EP1716897A2, EP1716897A3, US20060252531) was a design concept for a touch-based strategy game highly resembling the Pikmin series on a device that bears a remarkable resemblance to the Nintendo DS.  It was filed as a patent in January 2006 by Yuji Kando and Yutaka Hirameki, who respectively are the main programmers and level designers for Pikmin and Pikmin 2.
According to the patent, gameplay would involve players controlling Pikmin-like characters with a "pointing device", with the objective being to guide these units to other objects so that they can interact in certain ways.
