Pikmin 3 Release DateWell, this caught me off guard. Instead of announcing the release date of Pikmin 3 during this morning’s Nintendo Direct presentation, the Big N has elected to do it a bit later.

Here, from Twitter, is Nintendo’s announcement.

Since you guys asked so nicely, here’s a release date for Pikmin 3: August 4. pic.twitter.com/h6ceglAiCB

Those crafty jerks! I assume they announced it after the Direct presentation as they wanted space for the news. Otherwise, Pikmin 3‘s launch date would have come amidst a flurry of reports on A Link to the Past‘s next game and the Virtual Console release of EarthBound.
