Pikmin to land earlier than we thought?

Reports emanating from Japan have lead to speculation that the of sequel to the 2002 hit Pikmin. The game will hit our shelves earlier than we though, Nintendo should be releasing Pikmin 2 this spring in Japan and should be released in Europe and the US a month or two after its Japanese release. No solid date has been given yet but expect an announcement from Nintendo within the next month.

This news should be great news for European gamers who usually suffer a game drought during the summer, now we have at least one definite AAA title to fill that gap.
