Nintendo announced that Pikmin and other GameCube classics will be remade for the Wii as "Wii de Asobu" (Play on Wii) Selections. There's no word on which other games will be included, or if these are in fact remakes with Wii Remote integration or just simple rereleases to take advantage of the increased Wii audience.

You guys had better hope this isn't the Pikmin that Miyamoto was referring to. Wouldn't it be hilarious if when he said "We're making Pikmin" he meant "we're making a new box for Pikmin"? Maybe "hilarious" isn't the right word.
