Pikmin 2 for the Wii (US)

#1 Posted by BigLemon (1022 posts) -

Okay, so they re-released the first Pikmin for the Wii in the US, but when  have they done the same for the second one? I know I'm probably the only one that cares, but I actually liked this game when it came out. I was feeling nostalgic the other day and I really wanted to play it. Anyone have any news on this?

Cool. Haven't played Pikmin 2. I'll probably pick it up.

I remember Pikmin 2 very fondly, especially the crazy multiplayer mode. As much as I'm looking forward to 3, I'd love to see Nintendo put more resources into new Miyamoto fever dream IPs.

From what he said last year, that's exactly what's happening. He is definitely working on something original, not related to old franchises. I think that's also what they said when that "OMG he's retiring" confusion was spread. More Miyamoto-fever dreams coming to Nintendo hardware soon, I guess :)

Yeah, that was my impression as well, but I'll believe it when I see it (E3?). It did seem like his talents were being wasted working on derivative(ish) huge-team sequels and not new stuff.

Yea, as I understand he hasn't really been hands on with a game in forever and was only mainly managing all the teams and overseeing projects. Time for him to do some designing/directing again! :)

What the hell? NoA is FINALLY releasing Pikmin 2 Wii in 2012? A few months after Xenoblade Chronicles and The Last Story? I wonder if Cammie Dunaway choked on a grape, so now Nintendo of America is finally free to release the real games that they've been sitting on for years.

Well since she left October 1st, 2010 I guess somethings had to happen lol.

I find it funny that the Wii Version of Pikmin 2 has taken this long to come here especially since its been out for a while in other regions. I probably will still get it though.
