Nintendo Direct: Pikmin 3 set to release in August

Look! Up in the sky! It's a Winged Pikmin!

Pikmin 3. August 4. Wii U, both retail and eShop.

Seems like so far away, right? Wasn't it pretty much finished? Wasn't it close to being a launch window title? Why push it back so far? Makes me worry about other games in a similar sitch, namely The Wonderful 101.

In any case, today's Nintendo Direct unveiled a new Pikmin type: the Winged Pikmin. Joining the ranks alongside the Rock Pikmin, these flying fellas can assist Olimar by carrying items through the air. I wonder if they will also be able to lift up enemy monsters and drop them from the sky, smashing their guts on the ground below. That would be lovely.
