After three years...


The Wii port of Pikmin 2 was released in both Japan and Europe since 2009. Now, NoA is releasing it in North America this June.

Nintendo of America is surely late this time, as New Play Control! Pikmin 2 for the Nintendo Wii is *finally* releasing in North America, this June. This port from the GCN adds motion-controls, and was released three years ago in Europe and Japan!

The latest of Nintendo Power magazine claims that a Nintendo Wii game is headed to North America three years after its European release. No, itís not Disaster: Day of Crisis or Another Code: Róitís New Play Control! Pikmin 2.

This is a modified Wii port of the Gamecube game, with support for the Wii Remote. A Wii port of the first Pikmin game was released as New Play Control! Pikmin in both North America and Europe, but the Pikmin 2 port never made it to the U.S.

Looks like Nintendo wants to tide you over until Pikmin 3 for the Wii U, which is almost certain they will fully unveil it at this year E3!
