Following the Nintendo Direct broadcast, a new creature type has been announced for Pikmin 3, the Flying Pikmin.
The flying Pikmin joins the newest rock Pikmin this time around. The Flying Pikmin will follow the player and will allow items to be carried in the air by picking them up. The Flying Pikmin was first spotted in the E3 trailer for Pikmin 3 that eagle-eyed viewers would have seen.
Nintendo also announced Pikmin 3 to be delayed to an August 4th release date, way behind the original promise of the game releasing inside the Wii U’s launch window which ended in March.
