The wait is finally over! Which wait is that, I hear you say? Well, Pikmin 3 is finally here and there’s finally a Wii U game that’s worthy enough of your time to play too.

It feels like we haven’t one of them in months. Oh wait…

Anyway, yes, Pikmin is finally here, and no, it’s not cheaper than in stores. However it is only a small 3.6gb download so if you can’t wait until tomorrow morning to go buy the game, you could probably download it when it hits at midnight tonight.

Elsewhere on the two eShops, there isn’t much. The 3DS gets a couple of retail titles – one’s a fishing game and one’s a Nintendogs clone. The Virtual Console title Street Gangs is decent, but you might know it as River City Ransom. It’s a horrible PAL version though, so maybe avoid that one.

Elsewhere on the Wii U there’s a deal for Wii U Panorama Tours and Kirby’s Dream Land 3 from SNES.

I’ve already sneaked a copy of Pikmin 3 and have been enjoying it so far – who’s picking it up tomorrow then?

  • My body is reggie.

    Can’t wait to have a reason to play Wii U again. I’m unsure as to whether I’ll download or go get JB HiFi to match Big W ($68 I think) or something…
    Kinda tempted to swing by tonight and see if they’ll sell it early =\

      • Their catalogue says $68. I just price matched it at JB 30 minutes ago. He looked it up and said it was $74 on their website (odd since I couldn’t even find it on their mobile website); but I showed the catalogue page and they matched it.

  • Street Gangs! I don’t care if it’s a little dodgy, this is a piece of my childhood I’ll take in any form.
