Just for their Japanese viewership Nintendo has decided to run a special edition Nintendo Direct event on Pikmin 3 starting tomorrow at 4AM PT/7AM ET. It's likely that the Japan exclusivity is a result of the various details revealed during E3, as well as the impending early Japanese release of Pikmin 3 on July 13. This way, Nintendo can catch Japan up on Bingo-board multiplayer and maybe the new demos we saw the other week.
Of course, since the Pikmin 3 Nintendo Direct will be streaming online all audiences are welcome to view it. Nintendo also always publishes the Nintendo Direct streams via Youtube after they finish, too. Considering how early in the morning it will be running I might just wait and watch the event further in the day. It's Nintendo first really big game release post-launch, so it's definitely worth checking out for any new details.
Pikmin 3 will be released in the USA on August 4, in Europe on July 26 and in Australia July 27. I was able to try the game out during E3 and all I can really say it that it felt great to be back and playing Pikmin after such a long break between sequels. Again, check out the stream tomorrow, June 26 at 4AM PT/7AM ET: here.
