Pikmin 2 set for North American release

With its release schedule continues to deplete, it would appear that Nintendo of America plan to at long last release New Play Control! Pikmin 2 for Wii.

Such news was revealed in the latest issue of Nintendo Power, in which an article states: “Pikmin 2 was very well-received when it was first released in 2004, and we’re glad to see fans get the opportunity to experience it again with improved controls this June.”

The New Play Control! series sees GameCube classics reenvisioned with Wii Remote and Nunchuk control scheme support.

It’s release would mark an excellent marketing move by Nintendo to familiarise consumers with the IP prior to the arrival of Pikmin Wii U.

However whilst Nintendo Power seemingly offer such confirmation, a Nintendo of America representative responded to this by commenting “We have nothing to announce at this time.”
