It’s a big year for gaming, as after a long wait Nintendo is pushing out some new entries of their popular franchises. The Legend of Zelda: Tear of a Kingdom has been on everyone’s radar for quite some time after it continued to get small teasers. Even now, we’re still wondering where any of the promotion for that game is, but it seems it may not be the only game set for a release in just a few months.
Greek retailer Game Explorers may have seemingly leaked the release date for Pikmin 4 online, as they have added the game for a May 26th, 2023 release. This would fall on a Friday, which is the usual M.O. for Nintendo releases. Of course, it may also be a mistake given that sometimes this information is just rushed out but it does give us a sense that perhaps Pikmin 4 may release sometime this year.
Pikmin 4 was first announced back in September to the surprise of many, as while the game has been hinted at for quite some time, it almost felt like one o those entries that’ll likely never see the light of day. The last entry was released all the way back in 2013, which also took quite some time to release with the second entry hitting shelves in 2004.
At this rate, it seems that each new entry takes more and more time. Yet the May release isn’t definite and we’ll have to see if that’ll be confirmed in an upcoming Nintendo Direct, which has been rumored to return in February; a usual time for Nintendo to make some announcements.
