Nintendo lists Pikmin 3 for March 2013 release

It has been mentioned before on Infendo Radio about the possibility of Pikmin 3 missing the Wii U’s launch date. During a recent edition of Iwata Asks interview, the company confirmed that Pikmin 3 is listed for release during March 2013, which fits in line with the Wii U “launch window.” Again, the news isn’t all surprising, considering Nintendo may want to spread out more of their in-house development titles to avoid being lost in the fray. A wise move, but it will make the wait a little impatient for some…including myself.

Are any of you surprised by this news? Does Pikmin 3 have a better shot of being noticed by the public if released outside the Wii U’s launch in November?

    Well, there goes Nintendo’s strongest launch title for the Wii U! Looks like we’re priming the pump for a 3DS-style launch!

    Stan, what the hell are you talking about?

    The one game he wants (as do I, this and MH3Ultimate) is confirmed for next year so it means to him that no good games are going to come out the first few months of WiiU release, similar to how the 3DS didn’t have good games the first few months of release.

    Oh, so it’s a standard troll comment by Stan. Carry on, then.

    Maybe a Pikmin console bundle is planned? That’d be great 🙂
