Pikmin 3 delayed past March, Fire Emblem 3DS gets a February release date

Nintendo fans were greeted with some good news and some bad news this morning. The good news is that Fire Emblem: Awakening finally has a US release date. The bad news is that the Wii U flagship title Pikmin 3 has been delayed past Nintendo’s “launch window” time frame, and is now expected to ship sometime next spring or summer.

Fire Emblem: Awakening was released a few months ago in Japan to rave reviews and strong sales; while the franchise has a smaller (but equally dedicated) following in the US, Nintendo seems hopeful that the much improved 3DS sequel will be a mainstream hit when it lands in the US on February 4th.

Pikmin 3 meanwhile, has been delayed to sometime after it’s original March launch date. As a sort of consolation for the delay, Nintendo released a new trailer for the game that shows off some previously unseen new enemies and locations:

Pikmin 3 is definitely one of the Wii U’s flagship titles and it’ll be interesting to see if the lack of a new killer-app this winter hurts Wii U sales in 2013. If you’re interested in the game, check out my hands-on impressions of it from last summer’s E3.
