The Continual Delay of Nintendo's Wii U Games: Woe is Pikmin

Neal Ronaghan: ''Sometimes, I make truly crazy proposals, like this one where I thought Nintendo of America would deliver on their September promise of releasing Pikmin 3, The Wonderful 101, and Wii Fit U by the end of March 2013. That, as we know, did not happen. As of January, Pikmin 3, The Wonderful 101, Wii Fit U, and Game & Wario are slated for a release before the end of June, which, if you're keeping score, is less than three months away.

It's time to face some facts, though. It's early April. All four games will absolutely not be out by the end of June, unless Nintendo takes crazy pills and does something like launch three of them on the same day in June. It is becoming increasingly likely that Nintendo will take yet another month off from releasing a first-party Wii U title, which isn't totally ridiculous, but given the system's struggles, seems downright stupid. It is worth noting that the Wii U's Virtual Console should be getting a proper launch after the system update due in the spring, which technically started in late March.''

I used to think otherwise but now I think the Wii U Virtual Console won't get its proper launch until after the .30 cent promotion is over in late June. The spring update looks to only be about speeding up the OS.

Nintendo delays their games because they make sure the game is as close to perfect as possible, and with Nintendo games they get pretty darn close to perfect.

Nintendo Land, Mario Bros, Monster Hunter, Lego City, Zombie U, Scribblnauts, and there's more to come. The only people gripping are the ones that either play too much, or don't have a WiiU to begin with.
