How far ahead of time does Nintendo announce release dates nowadays?

Shouldn't Pikmin 3 and The Wonderful 101 be sometime soon? Why is there still no release date. I was expecting March but maybe not.

They start announcing games one year ahead of release because they have no games right now.

The Wii U is a dead system.

I'm talking about release dates, not releases.

Has the rage cooled down yet? I want to know if TW101 and P3 are still coming out soon if the dates still haven't been announced.

^ Because Nintendo distributes their games unevenly, we got FOUR first-party games in November at launch (New Super Mario Bros. U, Nintendo Land, SiNG Party, and Ninja Gaiden 3: Razor's Edge), and then we're getting ONE first-party game from December-March (LEGO City Undercover).

We are then supposed to get FOUR first-party games (Game & Wario, Wii Fit U, Pikmin 3, and The Wonderful 101) between April and the end of June. Makes zero business sense, especially with NO retail releases AT ALL in January and February and very few eShop releases (The Cave, Puddle, Balloon Fight, Ken's Rage 2, F-Zero, and maybe Zen Pinball 2 if we're lucky).

I expect either Pikmin 3 or The Wonderful 101 to be further delayed to August, but we won't know until it gets to May or so and they still don't have dates.
Yes, I really am the sage Luigi In His Mansion.
