After a long time of speculation, Nintendo has finally set the official Pikmin 3 release date: the Wii U exclusive strategy game will hit the store shelves on August 4th. In the recent Nintendo Direct presentation, the company revealed a few more Pikmin 3 details as well.
Nintendo revealed that Pikmin3 will feature new flying Pikmin, which will help getting items across rivers, etc. Pikmin 3 was originally intended as a Wii U launch title, but Nintendo decided to delay the game as the Wii U appeared to launch with plenty of third party titles. This also gave Nintendo quite a bit of time — 9 months — to polish the game.
Many were hoping to see Pikmin 3 released this Spring, but we’ll have to wait just a few more months. And we’re sure the wait will be worthwhile. Earlier this month Nintendo revealed that Pikmin 3 will feature 3 playable captains. Be sure to check out the latest Pikmin 3 screenshots as well.
