Nintendo Everything reader Sondast tells us that the May 2012 issue of Nintendo Power has confirmed New Play Control! Pikmin 2 for North America. It’s apparently releasing this June. This does seem likely, but we’ll mark this as a rumor until we can verify the news.
New Play Control! Pikmin 2 made it out in Japan and Europe back in 2009. Even though the Wii port of the first game was brought stateside, the sequel was not released in North America. Launching New Play Control! Pikmin 2 would be a great way to remind fans of Pikmin 3′s impending arrival on Wii U.
