Considering how long this game has been "in the making" I can understand. Either way, wait for more than pikmin, like another mario 3d adventure THEN get a wii u. Nintendo is notoriously slow bring out their games so I wouldn't jump right in, esp with the threat of different colored systems, cheaper launch games...
I did that with the 3ds and am very happy I waited. --- "I know how the business works because I'm a wrestling fan"-hulkhogan1
In addition to other games being worth buying, we might actually *gasp* get another Pikmin game after 3! A guy can dream, right? --- Gamefaqs: where men who can't get dates take every opportunity to tell everyone about their incredibly high standards when it comes to women.
That'll really come back to bite you if there turn out to be other games later on that you would want.
Why not just hold off on buying Pikmin 3 and a Wii U and wait until there are other games so you feel more justified in buying a Wii U? --- Kira deserves to be in SSB4 - GlitchySkyrim Well he is the best at L-Canceling - My response
I have never been overwhelmed by the games available on any console's release. I'd bet Mario is the first real killer app on the Wii U. I think Pikmin 3 will do OK because it's slated to come out when the library will likely be a barren wasteland of no games.
