Nintendo of America have today announced that they are to release Mario Power Tennis and Pikmin 2 through their Nintendo Selects value collection.

Pikmin 2 will mark its Wii debut in North America, introducing an optimised control scheme that utilises the Wii Remote and Nunchuk. Players must help brave Captain Olimar and his assistant, Louie, as they salvage treasures and return them to their home planet. To do so, you’ll once again command red, blue and yellow Pikmin, strategically using them alongside the newly added purple and white Pikmin.

Whereas Mario Power Tennis sees players take to the courts as they take the role of their favourite Mushroom Kingdom characters. Use the Wii Remote to swing forehands and backhands across tournaments, minigames or ‘Gimmick Courts.’

Mario Power Tennis and Pikmin 2 will be available across North America on June 10th.
