Pikmin 2 Finally Reaches North American Wiis Soon

Posted Tue, 24 Apr 2012 | 17:15 BST by James Newton

About time

Hey, New Play Control! Pikmin 2 what took you so long?

The latest issue of Nintendo Power claims the motion-controlled strategy game is finally going to reach North America later this year, presumably to tide you over until Pikmin 3 and remind gamers who Olimar and Louie actually are.

The enhanced Pikmin 2 originally hit Europe exactly three years ago, but you North Americans can enjoy it for yourself later this year.

Pikmin 2 Scan from Nintendo Power


Finally, North America can get this game for the Wii as a new way of controls. This game was released exactly three years ago today in Europe. This shows that Nintendo really want us to be anticipated for the upcoming release of Pikmin 3, including the showing at E3 2012.

I already have the game in perfect condition for GameCube, so there's probably no use for me getting this.

I'm pretty much done with Wii in getting more games now that Wii U is pretty much around the corner.

The only reason as to why they chose to wait this late was to get you guys hyped for the upcoming Pikmin 3 for Wii U.

Also, here's the box-art.



Seems to be a Nintendo Selects cover instead of a New Play Control! cover.

Here's a new trailer if you're still intent on getting it.

It will be re-released on Sunday, June 10, 2012.

If you don't have Pikmin 2 it's not a waste of time.

They could be making other awesome, deserving games.

Game was already made, they're just localizing it to the NA, finally.

^Get to the point earlier in your posting and that chain needn't have happened :mute:

I guess it's ok for a last-year-or-so-of-Wii release with the play control and all but it wouldn't get any major market share out of it. Maybe the bargain bins but still

Marth is not amused.
