Pikmin 3 screenshots show new ice level

Wii U exclusive launching in the second quarter of 2013

Nintendo has released a trio of new Pikmin 3 screenshots.

The latest images show off a fresh ice level and offer a closer look at some of the new characters in the Wii U game.

Nintendo confirmed a Pikmin 3 delay last December. The highly anticipated strategy game had been due to launch during the first calendar quarter of 2013, but will now release in the April to June window.

Shigeru Miyamoto revealed earlier this week that he's overseeing the creation of a series of original animated shorts based on the Pikmin franchise.

Designed to be viewed on 3DS, the shorts will be released before the launch of Pikmin 3 and will either be given away or sold through the eShop.
