GameCube releases for Wii to retail at full price

New Play Control! range to sell for 39.99 in UK

Nintendo's GameCube remakes for the Wii will sell at the same price as a normal Wii release, according to retailers.

The first two games in the New Play Control! brand are Pikmin and Mario Power Tennis, and have a recommended retail price of GBP 39.99, although online retailers are already slashing prices. Nintendo claims the titles have a RRP of GBP 29.99.

The titles will have reworked control support for the unique Wiimote, as well as a few other updated features.

Mario Power Tennis was first released in the UK in 2005, while Pikmin was released in 2002.

The new Pikmin will be released on February 6 in the UK, with Mario Power Tennis due for release March 6. Donkey Kong Jungle Beat and Pikmin 2 are also set for the New Play Control! brand later this year.

I love the product concept but that's a ridiculous price.

They'd fair far better and in the long run gain more revenue at a lower sales price.
