Nintendo Confirms Pikmin 3 Will Make Launch Window In North America
Earlier this week we were all a bit worried about the future of Pikmin 3 with the latest Iwata Asks announcing the game would ship during spring 2013. This would mean the game would need to be released in the first 11 days of spring to make the launch window.
Well breathe easy folks as Nintendo of America have confirmed today that Pikmin 3 will definitely make it out before March 31st, retaining its status as a Wii U launch window title! In North America at least…
An additional footnote has been added to the Iwata Asks interview stating:
“Pikmin 3 is scheduled for release for the Wii U console in the spring of 2013 in Japan, and during the Wii U launch window, from system release thru 3/31/2013 in the US. (Editor’s note 10/19/2012: We originally published the article citing only the expected release timing in Japan. We apologize for any confusion this may have caused.)”
So Pikmin 3 will be out in the first four months of the Wii U’s launch, at least in North America. It looks likely Japan will have to wait a little longer and there is still no definitive word on the European release date. Nintendo are keeping their cards very close to their chests on this one!
Are you getting excited about Pikmin 3 blossoming in spring?
