Pikmin 2 Hitting Wii In North America
The rare GameCube classic will finally poke its head on to the Wii.
Nintendo Power revealed yesterday that GameCube cult classic Pikmin 2 will come to the Wii in North America, albeit three years after its prequel. This is a strong move by Nintendo, given that there is already hype online about Pikmin 3 being revealed at E3 this year. As Pikmin 2 is exceedingly hard to get a hold of on the GameCube - its cheapest eBay "Buy It Now" price sits at $50 as we write this - making it available under the "New Play Control!" label will bring potential fans back in to the fold just in time to be entranced by Pikmin 3 at E3.
