Alright everyone. Nintendo of America has just uploaded a video in which Reggie reveals a new event with Gamestop and EB Games in Canada ahead of the Pikmin 3 release.
Nintendo fans will be able to play Pikmin 3 at Gamestop in the US, and EB Games in Canada on July 20th and 21st. There will be over 250 locations holding the event. Further, if you preorder the downloadable version of the game at any Gamestop location on either of those days you will be able to download the game from the eShop on August 3rd, a full day earlier than retail release.
What are your thoughts on Nintendo’s very methodical push to get more people to experience their games? Do you plan on taking advantage of the preorder deal? Keep in mind if you already have it preordered you should be able to transfer it to digital. Are you willing to miss out on that spectacular box art? Very important questions to answer, so let us know in the comments below!
