Pikmin 3 Australian release date

Nintendo has announced local release dates for several of the biggest Wii U games confirmed for 2013.

Pikmin 3 will be released in Australia and New Zealand on July 27, 2013.

Following on from 2004's Pikmin 2 on GameCube, new protagonists Alph, Brittany and Charlie takeover from Olimar and use the GamePad as a world map to keep watch on isolated groups of busy Pikmin.

Meanwhile, Platinum Game's Wii U exclusive The Wonderful 101 will be released in Australia and New Zealand on August 24, 2013, with more information to be revealed sporadically.

While we're talking release dates, Game & Wario will hit Australia and New Zealand on June 29 with 16 GamePad-savvy mini-games.

Resident Evil Revelations, the 3DS classic benefiting from a HD upgrade on Wii U, PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360, will be released through the eShop on May 23. It will not be available in Australia on disc.

    Hanging for The Wonderful 101 as I had expected it earlier this year and it's one of the reasons I got a Wii U. Might have to get Pikmin to tide me over in the meantime :P

    Great to see W101 a few weeks before the US.

    Wait i'm confused. How can RE:Revelations HD not be available on Disc? The Wii U version has been available to preorder from EB for ages, i have a copy preordered myself, for a physical disk.

    Do you have a link or anything? Any proof at all. I can't find anything online anywhere about it.

    EDIT: This from the official press release Nintendo sent me yesterday:

    "RESIDENT EVIL REVELATIONS: Capcom’s survival horror game is launching in stores and on Nintendo eShop on 23rd May. The game originally released for Nintendo 3DS, and the Wii U version offers players updated HD graphics, GamePad controls and new game content. The game is Miiverse-compatible, and a demo version is currently available on Nintendo eShop."

    I don't think it can be 'explained'.
