Is Pikmin 2 getting the 'New Play Control!' treatment for Wii?

2:00 PM on 12.29.2008 // Nick Chester

This March, Nintendo will be introducing the first in its series of GameCube remakes for the Wii, under their "New Play Control!" branding. First up will be New Play Control! versions of both Mario Power Tennis and Pikmin, both sporting Wii-specific controls for the re-release. 

It doesn't look like it's going to stop there, either -- if an updated ESRB listing is any indication, Pikmin 2 may be getting the "New Play Control!" treatment as well. Siliconera noted the updated listing for the title, which adds Wii to the consoles the game is available on. 

Nintendo hasn't announced the releaes of Pikmin 2 for the Wii for either North America or Japan, so you'll have to take this one with a grain of salt. Besides, we haven't even gotten New Play Control! Pikmin yet ... relax, OK? Let's hope this isn't the closest we'll get to seeing Pikmin on the Wii, though. The things we'd do for a new Pikmin title are certainly NSFW.
