Nintendo says Pikmin 3 is coming out during Spring 2013 in Japan but has stated that North America will could see it before the end of the launch window in March. Well, GameStop doesn’t agree with that.
GameStop is now listing Pikmin 3 for release on May 1st, 2013. This doesn’t mean it will really come out on the first of May, but it does give us a strong hint that it may be more likely to release in mid-to-late spring than during the tail end of the launch window.
Obviously a date on the 1st is a place holder but it could mean GameStop knows that it won’t come out any sooner than that.
We’ll have to wait and see when Pikmin finally has a new entry in stores but the good news is that we don’t have much longer to wait.Rumor: Pikmin 3 releasing in May 2013,
