A Treasured Nintendo Classic Arrives on the Wii System

The second game in the fan-favorite Pikmin franchise originally launched for the Nintendo GameCube console in 2004. Now Wii users can enjoy the imaginative fun of this classic and colorful mass action strategy game, now available at a suggested retail price of just $19.99 as part of the value-minded, family-friendly Nintendo Selects series. The brave Captain Olimar has returned to marshal new types of Pikmin in a wild, open-ended adventure. On a mission to pay back his employer’s debt, Olimar and his sidekick Louie must command squads of tiny Pikmin to help locate valuable treasures, exploring mysterious environments and battling pesky enemies along the way. Players of any experience level can use the Wii Remote and Nunchuk controllers to command these curious creatures and complete their mission. The game also invites friends to deviously pit their Pikmin squads against one another in a rough and ruthless two-player mode*.

Features:

  • Pikmin 2 is simple to pick up and play using the intuitive Wii Remote and Nunchuk controllers. Players can alternate between controlling Captain Olimar and Louie as they point the Wii Remote controller at the screen to select Pikmin and put them to work. A swarm of up to 100 Pikmin can be commanded simultaneously to explore new areas, locate treasures, fend off enemies and solve puzzles.
  • Pikmin 2 marks the debut of two additional Pikmin types: white and purple. Purple Pikmin boast 10 times the strength and weight of other colors, while white Pikmin are fast, resistant to poison and skilled at locating hidden treasure. Returning Pikmin types such as red, yellow and blue all have their own unique traits and abilities, too.
  • Strategy is key as players choose which Pikmin to deploy for a given task. With more than 60 different species of enemy characters and randomly generated dungeons that span the planet, the game offers a fun array of challenges.
  • Players can go head to head in frantic two-player battles or team up in a cooperative challenge mode.
  • There are no time limits in Pikmin 2, so players of any experience level can progress through the game at their own pace, heading straight for the action or taking time to explore the beautiful habitats.

* Additional accessories are required for multiplayer mode and are sold separately.
