Pikmin 3 Dated for August 4th in US (and New Winged Pikmin!)

Pikmin 3Today’s Nintendo Direct conference may have left out announcing a launch date for Pikmin 3, but already Nintendo have since confirmed a North American release date.

After official Nintendo press releases following the conference noted an August 4th release date, rapid word-of-mouth led to Nintendo America’s official Twitter account confirming the news: Pikmin 3 is slated for release on the Wii U later this year on August 4th, with its Japanese release for July 14th. No word yet on the European release date.

What the conference didn’t leave out however is the details behind a second new Pikmin — as well as the Rock Pikmin, a new Pikmin sub-species called the Winged Pikmin will feature in the game with an ability to carry items in the air and traverse over water and fight aerial enemies much easier.

The release date is great news as Pikmin 3 has been a long time coming and the original two Pikmin games were absolutely gorgeous.
