Wii Bringing Back Some Classics


Nintendo of America has shared some great news for fans of Pikmin and Mario Tennis!  On June 10th, 2012 NoA will release Pikmin 2 and Mario Power tennis for the Wii as part of their “Nintendo Selects” line of games.  Both of the classic games will be available for the low price of $19.99.

Nintendo also announced that Super Smash Bros. Brawl and Donkey Kong Country will now sell for the low price of only $29.99.  For fans that do not already own the titles, or have played the disk to it’s grave, the lower pricing is sure to attract an audience.  I can almost see Reggie swimming with Scrooge McDuck in the Vault of gold coins in celebration of the increased profits.

Could it be that the re-release of these games, as well as the lower pricing, are meant to draw fans back into the series in preparation for Wii U sequels?  Probably not, but I can’t help but hope!
