Nintendo lists Pikmin 3 for March 2013 release

It has been mentioned before on Infendo Radio about the possibility of Pikmin 3 missing the Wii U’s launch date. During a recent edition of Iwata Asks interview, the company confirmed that Pikmin 3 is listed for release during March 2013, which fits in line with the Wii U “launch window.” Again, the news isn’t all surprising, considering Nintendo may want to spread out more of their in-house development titles to avoid being lost in the fray. A wise move, but it will make the wait a little impatient for some…including myself.

Are any of you surprised by this news? Does Pikmin 3 have a better shot of being noticed by the public if released outside the Wii U’s launch in November?
