Pikmin Comes To The Wii!

993.jpg

No, it's not the oft-rumored brand-new Pikmin sequel that at this rate, should show up somewhere towards the end of the Wii U's life-cycle (if we're lucky!). Nintendo is finally releasing Pikmin 2 on the Wii in the US on June 10. The Wii control-enhanced version of Pikmin 2 has been out in Japan, but it's finally reaching our shores for anyone who missed playing it on the GameCube.

Pikmin 2 is being released as part of the Nintendo Selects line, and on the same day, you can also get Mario Power Tennis, another GameCube classic with enhanced Wii controls. And we all know how much more fun tennis games are when you swing a Wiimote instead of pressing a button!

Both Pikmin 2 and Mario Power Tennis will be available on June 10 for just $19.99. And Nintendo is also dropping the prices of Super Smash Bros. Brawl and Donkey Kong Country Returns, making them just $29.99. You know, for the three of you out there who don't already have Smash Bros.!

I played Pikmin 2 first on the Gamecube. I never played Pikmin 1 before I picked up Pikmin "NPC" (New Play Control) on the Wii. Frankly, I didn't care for the control scheme on the Wii as much as the Gamecube controller.

Pikmin 2 is one of my favourite games ever, but I don't think I'll "Pik" this one up, because my good ol' Wii has GC backward compatibility, and I like it just the way it is.

I'm so buying this. I loved the first game but never got to play the second. Certainly wish they would release one for the Wii U.

And I'm be of those 3 people that doesn't have Smash Bros...awkward.

Not gonna lie, Pikmin 2 coming with the Wii controls is probably the best news I've heard in a while. I absolutely adore the first Pikmin, and never got a chance to play the second. And after the controls of the Wii-make, I wouldn't want to go back.

Wow. New play control Pikmin 2 has been out for years in Australia. Long enough to have filtered down into the second hand bins several times over.

Excellent game. One of the few nintendo games with procedurally generated content. The multiplayer component is highly underrated.

Definitely worth getting if you missed it on the GameCube.
