Pikmin 3 Finally Gets Definitive Release Date

Posted on April 17, 2013 AT 11:25am

Nintendo announced today that Pikmin 3 hit retail shelves and launch on the Nintendo eShop August 4.

Pikmin 3 was originally expected to be a Wii U launch window title, but then slipped into a nebulous “2013″ release timeframe.

Nintendo also revealed a new breed of Pikmin, the flying Winged Pikmin. These pink-colored Pikmin can carry items in the air, and according to Nintendo president Satoru Iwata, “will be helpful in different ways than the other Pikmin types.”
