Pikmin 3's August release date quietly revealed by Nintendo

Pikmin 3

Nintendo didn't announce the release date of Pikmin 3 during the actual Nintendo Direct presentation today, but tucked away in the depths of an email recap, the company quietly confirmed the game launches for Wii U on August 4, 2013.

During the actual presentation, Nintendo instead opted to share with us a new type of Pikmin -- the Winged Pikmin. As the name suggests, these winged creatures can fly and follow the player, carrying items in the air as well.

I stand corrected, Nintendo doesn't hate us. They just want us to work for the details of a highly anticipated game's release. Pikmin 3, August 4, in stores and in the Nintendo eShop. That's really all you need to know.
