Today, Reggie Fils-Aime, announced that participating GameStops and EB Games, for our Candanian readers, will be hosting a special event where gamers can play Pikmin 3.

Fils-Aime also announced that those that preorder Pikmin 3 on either of these days will be allowed to download the game from the Nintendo eShop on August 3rd, a full day before it launches.

You can check your local GameStop/EBGames to see if they are participating.

First confirmed in 2008, Pikmin 3 is the first return to the Pikmin universe since Pikmin 2 in 2004. Pikmin 3 was released today in Japan. Pikmin 3 allows gamers to control up to three Pikmin leaders, as compared to two in Pikmin 2. For those planning on pre-ordering Pikmin 3 and downloading it early, according to Nintendo Everything you must have 5GB of open storage available.
