Nintendo have confirmed that Play On Wii, GameCube conversions, will also be available in Europe.

The Play On Wii scheme, sees a handful of GameCube titles being directly ported, or re-released, onto Wii for those who were unable to play or get hold of a copy. Pikmin, Pikmin 2, Donkey Kong: Jungle Beat, Metroid Prime 1 & 2, and Mario Tennis have all been confirmed for re-release.

Speaking to N-Europe earlier today, the company confirmed that the range will also come to Europe, but as per usual it's "too early to announce or discuss specific details at this time." Despite that, I think it's safe to say it will be arriving in the U.S also :)

I wonder if these games will have 480p support as well as 16:9, what do you think?. Also, are there any GC games that you missed out on that you would like to get the chance to play?

So how much do we have to pay to play those GC games? Or is it Free?

Apparently, Pikmin 2, Metroid Prime 1 & 2, and Mario Tennis are scheduled for remakes as well.

Nice! I can't wait to try the two Prime games with Wii controls! When I read about Play On Wii I thought of those two games!

I am guessing they will change something about those games in order to re-release them. I assume they will add Wii Controls.

i hope so, pikmin worked great with the gamecube controller but with the wii IR pointer it would be even better.

Also, wtf? Is it so hard to get a copy of a used gamecube game in Japan? I don't understand this whole concept.

Maybe I'm wrong, but I think its illegal in Japan to sell 2nd hand items/electronics.

Are these games that rare that they need re-releases or do they think people will re-buy the same game again if they add Wii controls?

The Prime are going to be great, specially for those who didn't play the GC games!

Donkey Kong's hands are HUGE! I wonder how big his Kong is.
