Nintendo has announced some upcoming release dates, but the ones to make the list aren't as interesting as the ones that conspicuously didn't. The Wii U launch window closes on March 31, and it appears some of Nintendo's franchises won't be making that period after all.
Pikmin 3, Game & Wario, The Wonderful 101, and Wii Fit U have all been moved to the nebulous "first half of the year." Today's release announcements covered Nintendo's slate through March, so the movement of these titles to a more vague time frame pushes them out of that line-up. Pikmin had previously been called a spring release. The announcement also unsurprisingly pegs Aliens: Colonial Marines in unnamed Q1 territory, positioning it later than other versions.
