GameCube Wii re-releases coming to Europe

Thursday, 2nd October 2008 14:26 GMT By Patrick Garratt


According to this N-Europe story, the GameCube re-releases announced this morning in Nintendo’s Japanese press conference will, indeed, be making their way to Europe.

“The GameCube conversions will be available across Europe too,” said a Nintendo rep. “However, it’s too early to announce or discuss specific details at this time.”

Yep, that means there’s going to be a European Wii version of the original Pikmin. Go crazy.

    So what’s this, just the Gamecube games repackaged and fitted for Wii controls?

    As far as I can tell, it’s just the Gamecube games. Exactly as they were. In new boxes.

    Oh. That’s a bit boring.

    /was hoping for Metroid Prime with Wii controls.

    “A new series of software is coming out called “Let’s Play On Wii,” according to Iwata. The series will bring back popular titles like Pikmin that were released on GameCube, but they will adapted for play on Wii.”

    Something is changing.

    Yay, hope reignited. If they’re Wii discs, then they must be supporting the Wii remote. :)

    Fuck me, it’s confirmed! ecosse posted a quote in the Wii Discussion Group on EG.

    “Seven titles are currently on the way for the lineup. Donkey Kong Jungle Beat kicks things off on December 11, and will be followed by Pikmin on December 25. In 2009, Nintendo plans on releasing Chibi Robo!, Pikmin 2, Mario Tennis GC, Metroid Prime, and Metroid Prime 2 Dark Echoes.”
