Pikmin 3 finally has a release date

Nintendo of America announced today that Pikmin 3 will be gracing the Wii U on August 4th! *cue fan applause* They also revealed a new Pikmin- a pink flyer that will follow the player around and carry items mid-flight. The only other confirmed new Pikmin is the rock Pikmin, which can smash through otherwise unbreakable barriers. Pikmin 3 will be playable with either the Wiimote+Nunchuk or the Wii U GamePad.

I’ve never played a Pikmin game before. Probably because I’ve always been more of a Playstation and Xbox fan. The games have always intrigued me though. I do own a Wii and I’m a huge fan of the Super Smash Bros. universe, and while I never use Olimar, I hear he’s actually one of the stronger characters in the roster. Speaking of Olimar, he won’t be returning in Pikmin 3, and the reason for that is still unknown.

Expect to see Pikmin 3, the new 3D Mario and Super Smash Bros. among other confirmed 1st party titles at this years E3, which is taking place June 11-13.
