Nintendo has responded to yesterday’s reports that Wii-makes Pikmin and Mario Power Tennis were to retail at £39.99 – the same as a brand new game.

“Nintendo do not set prices,” said a spokesperson for the company to GI. “It is up to retailers at what price they sell any item for.”

“However, our trade price for these games will be below our usual trade price for Wii games and our present estimate of the likely retail price is in the region of £29.99.”
