Pikman 2 and Mario Power Tennis Join the Nintendo Selects
Nintendo has two new titles that are joining the Nintendo Selects branding in June with both Pikman 2 and Mario Power Tennis. With the Selects branding, both of these titles will be priced at $19.99 and new box art for both.
Pikman 2 is a franchise that is hugely popular with the Nintendo fanbase and continues the story of Captain Olimar and his assistant Louie as they use the different Pikman to collect treasures to return to his home planet. This version of Pikman 2 features controls modeled for the Nintendo Wii and includes a frantic split screen multiplayer mode for added fun. Mario Power Tennis on the other hand, lets you pick on of the many characters in the Mushroom Kingdom to guide through a number of tennis tournaments played on courts that could only come from a person’s imagination. On top of the standard tennis game are a host of minigames and unlockables to collect over time.
Finally, just in time to offest the announcment of Sony’s premier brawler is a price drop for the original brand brawler as Super Smash Brothers Brawl is getting a price drop to $29.99 along with Donkey Kong Country Returns. Together, these titles have sold more than eight million units, and the lowered pricing should only help expand the brand to those that might have held off at this point in time.
