Nintendo Preparing More New Play Control Games For The West


npc Nintendo’s New Play Control series is about to roll out in Europe in a few weeks. In March it’s trickling over here with Pikmin and Mario Power Tennis as the first two titles. Back in Japan Donkey Kong Jungle Beat was the introductory game for the series. Are we going to get Donkey Kong too?


Probably. Well, Europe definitely is. Nintendo of Europe announced the Donkey Kong Jungle Beat Wii-make and Pikmin 2 are in the cards for 2009 along with “many games which will be making their way to the New Play Control series.” Games which haven’t been announced in Europe yet include Metroid Prime, Metroid Prime 2, and Chibi-Robo. Three games hardly qualify as “many”, but Nintendo has plenty of other Gamecube games like Doshin the Giant and Mario Golf which could be converted to New Play Control titles too.


While Nintendo of America has not announced it, it looks like Pikmin 2 is coming over here.
