|"Winged Pikmin" revealed.|
During this morning's Nintendo Direct presentation, the company announced that the highly-anticipated Pikmin 3 will be released on August 4th in North America. They have not yet determined when the game will come out in Europe, but the company has promised that it will be available in "just a few months."
The Big N also revealed a new flying Pikmin which follows the player and can carry items in the air. The new type of these tiny creatures actually made their debut in the E3 2012 trailer for the game, but it looks as though few players caught sight of it. President Satoru Iwata took the opportunity to highlight the airborne helpers, which have been dubbed "winged Pikmin."
