Either I teleported to the UK, or this was finally released!

Remember the whole New play Control thing for wii? How they re-released GC games for wii? Yeah, that was pretty cool. The wii version of Pikmin was especially fantastic. However, the new play control thing stopped before Pikmin 2 was released, and everywhere but North America got Pikmin 2 for wii.

So, I'm going to my friend's birthday today, and wanted to get him a gift. What do I stumble upon?

This:

Spoiler

Extremely happy, I couldn't resist picking up 2 copies (one for myself, and one for my friend, since I knew they'd love it). They were pretty cheap actually. They aren't labelled "new play control" though, probably since that's dead.

Yeah, yeah, I'm probably just out of the loop since I could care less about the new games coming out. Just thought I'd share this since this is something I thought for sure was not being released. Quite a pleasant surprise to lighten up my day.

Also, question about Pikmin 2's cover. I noticed it has a different cover from the gamecube one I own.

Spoiler

Just wondering if anyone knows why this game had 2 different covers, because I've seen both different ones around the video stores back in the gamecube days(the other type of cover being the same one that is on the wii version posted above, only for gamecube).

That cover was supposed to be the cover before it was changed to the one with the lobster.

now here's the strange thing... The one I own, has the cover with pikmin on the tree branch. I guess both were released, but personally, the one with the lobster looks cooler in my opinion.

The one with them standing on the branch is the only one used in the UK. No lobster for us.

That's what I hear, the one with the tree branch is the UK one, and the one with the lobster is the North American one... So why do I have a copy of the tree branch one in NTSC-U format? Also, my friend owns the Tree branch one. I know I said I thought I've seen the lobster one back in the gamecube days, but I don't think I have. The 2 video stores I actually saw the game at as a kid, and the copy I own, as well as the one my friend owns have all been the tree branch come to think of it. Only times I saw the lobster one was online listed as the north american cover(and the wii version now).

Is it possible that Canada only got the tree branch cover for some strange reason? I would find this very strange being that Canada and the states are both from the north american regions, and the games don't differ, not even for the covers.

Edit: Check this out, I think I may be right, how strange...
