So the good news, for all you Olimar fans out there, is that today it was announced Pikmin 2 will be hitting store shelves for the Wii on June 10 for the low price of $19.99! But wait, that’s not all; in conjunction with Pikmin’s release comes another Nintendo Selects installment, this time in the form of Mario Power Tennis!

Smash Bros. Brawl and DK Country Returns Become Bargains

For all three of you out there who never originally picked up Super Smash Bros. Brawl or Donkey Kong Country Returns, rest easy knowing that you’ll be able snatch them up on the cheap very soon as Nintendo put word out today that both games will be seeing a price cut in the near future, dropping them down to $29.99. With that kind of price point, I’d venture to say everyone should at the very least own Smash Bros.; if for nothing else than to get in some practice time before showing up to your unsuspecting friend’s house and laying the smackdown on him for all those times he trolled you with Meta Knight.

Aqua Blue 3DS still a go for North America and Europe

Fret not, future owners of the Aqua Blue 3DS, for Nintendo let loose information today that its reported discontinuation of one of the 3DSs original colors will only be affecting Japanese consumers… for now anyway. It was recently announced that Japan will have to wave sayonara to the beautiful Aqua Blue 3DS to make way for a new Cobalt Blue iteration. Worried consumers in both North America and Europe sat biting their nails in anticipation for Nintendo to provide a statement about the colors’ future for regions outside of Japan. Fortunately, if you’re one of those folks, you can let your anxiety subside as Nintendo Europe has reported, “this announcement is only for the Japanese market.”

Now, enough chat about all this blue nonsense; I’m just trying to talk about that sleek midnight purple 3DS, which conveniently drops next week in North America. You can bet your bottom dollar this guy will be at his local game store on its release day.
