Pikmin 3 trailer + release pushed back

Nintendo's highly anticipated strategy game Pikmin 3 has been delayed until the second quarter of the 2013 calendar year, the company confirmed today.

It means that the game is set for release some time between April and June, though Nintendo has not specified. Originally the Wii U exclusive was due for the launch-window period of Q1. Also delayed to Q2 is the 3DS title Animal Crossing: New Leaf.

Nintendo announced the postponements during an online press conference, which also revealed that Scribblenauts Unlimited will arrive at retail on February 8. Nintendo is taking on publishing responsibilities of the game, which in the US was handled by Warner Bros.
