Pikmin, Mario Tennis Wii dates confirmed

Nintendo nails down UK launches for GC remakes

To give you enough time to scrape some pennies together, Nintendo has confirmed the release dates for Pikmin and Mario Power Tennis on Wii.

Pikmin's out first on February 6, with Mario Power Tennis to follow exactly a month later on March 6.


These come as part of Nintendo's "New Play Control" range, which sees GameCube classics ported to Wii with new controls to take advantage of the Remote and Nunchuk.

Pikmin gets pointer control to make ordering your little helpers around a little easier, and Mario Power Tennis has Wii Sports Tennis-style racquet swinging action.

Pikmin 2 and Donkey Kong Jungle Beat (get in!) are next on the Wii Treatment list.
