And yet another game slides into 2013, but Pikmin 2 will make it?
We found out a couple of days ago that Bioshock: Infinite was being postponed into 2013; now yet another game has caught the breeze of delay, Crystal Dynamics Tomb Raider Reboot. According to Darrell Gallagher, Head of Crystal Dynamics, the game will be pushed back to the first quarter of 2013 to make sure there is an extra coat of spit shine on the game. From what we saw last year at E3 the game is shaping up very nicely and looks to take some cues from the male tomb raider himself Nathan Drake.
On a good note today, Kotaku reported that Pikmin 2 and Mario Power Tennis will be coming to North America as part of the Nintendo Selects lineup. These games will include the enhanced Wii controls and will be available June 10th for a mere $20 bucks. Pikmin 2 was one of the Purple Lunchboxes greatest games and one of their greatest franchises that play second fiddle to all that is Mario. If you have a Wii do yourself a favor and pick up Pikmin 2, also the blue Pikmin’s face is priceless.
