    Grrrr this was confirmed as a launch game a few months ago. Then it got pushed to Q1. Now it's at Q2. :evil:

    Q2 is rubbish Nintendo

    The only way to get console sales is to have good exclusive games, otherwise people might as well keep their 360 or PS3!

    Exactly, and so far the only really good exclusives they have are ZombieU and New Super Mario Bros U, neither of which are brilliant. Pikmin 3 should have been a launch title.

    Nice and seasonal release. Fingers crossed for april cause it'd suit my (perhaps) birthday wii u in april time.

    Honestly I think this is the best looking Wii U game I've seen,so beautiful.

    I've never played the previous games, but I found it surprisingly good after sampling it on the Wii U Showcase tour. Graphically, it was also the best looking game I saw running on the day, in particular those angular Rock Pikmin which looked incredibly sharp.
    Only problems I had was that in the demo that I played there was limited manual camera control, and I personally didn't like the boss set-up. The boss would climb up the walls and completely out of sight and you never knew where he was until he rammed into you from behind. Recollecting Pikmin was also quite tricky in that boss fight, but I put that down to my inexperience.
