    Yup.

    Nintendo seems to advertising this to fuck on TV here. Already got GC version so might skip it, got enough to play anyway.

    Never played the original but after watching a videotour of how the game play I got interested in it. Looks really cool and the pointer really enhances the experience.

    But I really hope Nintendo NPC-Geist with good Gfx! That would be really great, since the framerate issue is really annoying in such games. Otherwise I wouldn`t care that much about Gfx, esspecially since these games are mostly just ports with new controls...

    Don't like the time limit on this game. Bring on Pikmin 2!

    I still wanted to play Pikmin again. My sister bought the GC version when we just had the GameCube, but I was too young to enjoy it. The time limit really frustrated me.

    By the way, is there no time limit in Pikmin 2? That sounds a lot better [​IMG]

    Nintendo should do a new Luigi's Mansion for wii, not a remake but a 3D sequel, would be awesome with the wiimote

    Yeah Pikmin 2 is better, it has no time limit, 3 new pikmin if you count the one in the caves and a extra guy to control. Its been ages since i played it, i might download this and the gamecube iso of pikmin 2.

    Yes I have wondered for a long time why they haven't done this, it would seem the most obvious game to do on the Wii.

    So,
    Is this going to be a new thing?

    Converting GC games to Wii with modified controls?

    (Not that i care, there are some GC game i love to see on the Wii)

    Ok, Pikmin is a game that asks for Wii controls, no doubt about that /
