Nintendo's Selects line of $19.99 Wii titles expands by two next month, when Mario Power Tennis joins the long-awaited North American release of New Play Control Pikmin 2 in retailers "games too inexpensive to be in the case" sections.
One of the best alien plant-based real-time strategy games ever created, Pikmin 2 originally hit the Gamecube in 2004, capturing the hearts of gamers everywhere with its unique mob-based gameplay and delightful design. In 2009 Nintendo released the New Play Control version of the game for the Wii in Japan, while fans stateside half-heartedly picked at the New Play Control version of the first game, wondering when our time would come.
Well there you go.
Along with the new Nintendo Selects games comes price drops on two of the Wii's greatest titles, Super Smash Bros. Brawl and Donkey Kong Country Returns, each to be available at $29.99. Apparently they are too good to be seen with those low-rent $19.99 Selects titles. Snobs.
