This topic is mostly to avoid the inevitable questions about the placeholder date gamestop has posted.

Last we heard from Nintendo, Pikmin 3 was still a launch window title in the states. According to GameStop, they think quite differently. Could Pikmin 3 be in for yet another delay?

I'm still with nintendo in thinking this will be out before march 31st
No, John, unfortunately we don't have a code for "There's a man in my closet with a gun to my daughter's head." Although we obviously should.

Oh GameStop don't know what they're talking about.
I think we all remember a couple months ago, GameStop was listing all Wii U pre-orders as $99, EACH.

I wouldn't put too much weigh into this until we hear more from Nintendo.

Wouldn't surprise me I guess. It has always seemed like Pikmin is more of a hobby type game for them.

Hopefully this isn't Nintendo's Duke Nukem Forever.

Pikmin 2 got delayed multiple times during its release windows. One reason I imported the japanese version of Pikmin 2 a year before its release in the US was because it included the English version that was unlockable with an action replay. Maybe this will happen again with Pikmin 3.

I'm pretty sure that was Kirby's Return to Dream Land.

HA-HA!
You seriously think that Pikmin 3 will turn out anything like Duke Nukem Forever!?
???
I can only imagine Olimar (or his substitute) spewing sexist clichés, and poop jokes.

I could be wrong, but I REALLY doubt it.


As for the time delay reflecting on it's quality...
Didn't people say something similar about Metroid 64? Which later turned into Metroid Prime.

I believe he / she was referring to game being delayed many times, not so much the quality / themes of the game.
