Wasn't sure if this deserved a new thread since it's just heresay, but it seems that Pikmin is coming out in July. This is from The-magicbox "Saturo Iwata said that the Wii U has lost momentum and it didn't sell as good as Nintendo has planned. The reasons are not enough first party games such that customer expectations were not met. He hopes the situation would change with the release of Pikmin 3 in July. There will be more and more major games appear for the Wii u, so that the Wii U business is revived."
His mention of July is in reference to the Japanese release the US release is August 4th!
