Yesterday we finally got a release date of August 4th for Pikmin 3, but it turns out the above memo that has been circulating around 4chan’s /v/ community was leaked before the Nintendo PR email that went out confirming the release date. With that in mind, let’s have a look at what’s on the docket for future release.
Perhaps one of the most interesting things on this sheet is the fact that Super Mario Galaxy 2 seems to have been in consideration as a port from Wii to Wii U. The release was supposed to include a soundtrack CD, but it looks as if this project has been put on hold. Moving on from there, we see several accessory releases scheduled and The Wonderful 101 set for some time in July.
Unfortunately release dates are pretty scarce, but under the release date “Fall” we have the following titles:
- Bayonetta 2
- Yarn Yoshi
- Xenoblade Wii U
- Super Smash Bros. Wii U
- Shen Megami Tensei & Fire Emblem Crossover
- Mario Kart Wii U
Certainly not a bad start to the holiday season on Nintendo’s part. Given the accuracy of the document at predicting the Pikmin 3 and Legend of Zelda 3DS version, it seems these release dates could be accurate.
Other things to note are the release of Wii Fit U with Balance Board and Fit Meter, which could certainly appeal to those who purchased the original Wii Fit. What do you think of this release schedule? Let us know in the comments below.
