The lights are on
Update: We reached out to Nintendo to confirm the upcoming New Play Control! Pikmin 2 release and it responded, "we don’t have anything to announce at this time," so you can file this one under rumor for now.
The New Play Control! series takes GameCube games, adds some waggle, and re-releases the games at a lower price point. The next game to get this treatment is Pikmin 2. The game should be availble in June, according to the latest issue of Nintendo Power.
The updated Wii version of Pikmin 2 has been available in Europe and Japan for quite some time. I would like to think that Nintendo is releasing the game in North America to to get everyone excited about a Pikmin 3 announcement.

Aha, getting us excited for Pikmin 3, I see... Well neat, more Pikmin is always a good thing! I remember watching my cousin play this when I was younger
That's odd I just finished watching a play through of this game today
Eh, I'll stick with my GameCube edition.
Sweet, I never got a chance to play this series. Now I can squeeze it in before Pikmin 3.
interesting to do this for such a old game
meh who cares...nintendo is dead to me now. a little too late Ninty.
Surprised. usually there are people complaining about re-releases
I am a very happy camper to hear they are re-releasing Pikmin 2. I didn't buy it when it 1st came out on GC and now i want to play it but its $60 for just a used copy of Pikmin 2 on Amazon or eBay! i've been hesitant to drop that much on a 6 year old game but with a re-release i'll be picking this game up day one, the 1st one was amazing and they redid that game to success and this one will probably find more since a lot of people who wanted to play this game never got a chance, because its been so hard to find since it released on GC in the U.S.
THIS IS GLORIOUS NEWS...WA..sorry..the caps lock was stuck, that tends to happen when I receive news of one of my favorite games. Anywho, THIS IS GLORIOUS...SON OF A....
