Despite never having been released for Wii in North America, the Wii's "New Play Control" version of Pikmin 2
will be released as part of the "Nintendo Selects" line June 10, alongside fellow GameCube port Mario Power Tennis
. Rather than question the logistics of a budget re-release of a game that was never released in the first place, we'll celebrate the $19.99 price point under which it's coming out.
Also joining the Nintendo Selects line are two bona fide Wii games, Super Smash Bros. Brawl
and the excellent Donkey Kong Country Returns
, at $30 each. It's about (two years past) time for Brawl
to be made cheaper, though it's unusual that these two games will sell for $10 above the normal Nintendo Selects price.
