Following today’s Nintendo Direct broadcast, Nintendo took to Twitter to announce that Pikmin 3, the long-awaited (and long-delayed) third installment of the Pikmin series, will finally be released in North America on August 4.
The Big N also announced a few new details on the game during the actual presentation, most notably revealing a brand new Pikmin type– the Winged Pikmin. As their name implies, these tiny pink variants have wings that allow them to hover above the environment. Winged Pikmin are the second (and presumably final) new Pikmin type added to the series, joining the previously announced Rock Pikmin from last year’s E3.
What do you think of the new Winged Pikmin? Will you be picking up Pikmin 3 when it hits stores this August? Let us know in the comments!
