Pikmin 3 Wii U Release Date is Spring 2013

Pikmin 3 Wii U Release Date is Spring 2013Pikmin 3 was the first new Wii U game presented by Nintendo at this year’s E3 which lead us to initially believe it would be a launch day title. When Nintendo announced their Wii U launch lineup, Pikmin 3 was relegated to the launch window that extends through the first quarter of 2013.

The latest edition of Nintendo’s Iwata Asks casually drops a spring 2013 release date for Pikmin 3 which would put its release month in March at the absolute earliest. Nintendo’s unwillingness to lock in a release date makes me wonder if the game will make the launch window at all. We probably won’t know for sure until after New Year’s.

Speaking of Iwata Asks, the latest installment is definitely worth a read as it focuses on the challenges of designing and perfecting the Wii U GamePad.
