best nintendo franchise ever made, I got this for 10$ at sears appliance store and I owned a gamecube and never played a pikmin game until that day, since then I beat it 3times and I got the 2nd one yesterday at gamestop used for 40$ on gamecube since the 2nd one never came to america on wii and thats 10 shy of what the game cost new back when it came out in 2004 "expensive" but so far I really think it was worth it not to mention the trouble I had with my car on the way and I also had to call every gamestop I new of and then I had to get a gamecube controller and memory card at some other store............. pikmin 1&2 in my opinion are not only the best nintendo games made but I also think they should be in the top 10 games of all time not to mention my 1&2 best games I've ever played, can't wait for pikmin 3 and I hope it has some small side story to bring back the 30day timer and I hope it has a main story without it like pikmin 2 but you have to have them both because they are completly different games because of it "find them and buy them" and if you give each of them an hour or 2 then you'll add them to your permanent collection of games you'd never sell..............

wow!

good sales, same for Pikmin 2 (if you think it's not even out in America)

i guess Pikmin 3 will sell over 2m
BigGumby (on 10 January 2010)
yes! Great sales for a remakes, I wish Pikmin 2 would come to America on Wii. Let's get more Pikmin fans! :D

400K! That is 25% of what the G.C game did. That is decent for a NPC game that has nothing to do wit Mario.

I Tried I Would Have Given It A 7.6 I Didn't Really Get Into It Much Though
dark_gh0st_b0y (on 29 May 2009)
awesome sales for a re-released game!

i'm now a Pikmin fan!!
Green Penguin (on 25 May 2009)
Keep the sales going

I'm fully aware of the paragraph spacing problem of the Boss Walkthrough, it'll be fixed soon I hope
Voltaire (on 22 May 2009)
Its....ok. The controls dont really add all that much to the experience. I played both Pikmin on GC, and i can honestly tell that the IR controls, while nice, arent really great improvements.
killeryoshis (on 15 May 2009)
pikmin>all
sorry its the truth:-D
shakarak (on 15 May 2009)
Just got it today!

320k for a NPC game, nice. Heres hoping it hits 500k.
Valkyria00 (on 07 May 2009)
Never played GCN versions and glad I skipped it. I dont understand how the hell this could work with analog because wii pointer is fucking perfect.

Its a great game however not as epic or amazing as other Ninty franchise. Id lover for part 3 but I hope its not the big announcement at E3.
jefforange89 (on 18 April 2009)
I don't think Nintendo really needs the money from this to fund Pikmin 3. The Wii hardware itself prints money, and then there's MK Wii, Wii Fit, etc. etc...
SaviorX (on 09 April 2009)
300k comes next week.

I see 600k being an eventual endpoint for this,but Nintendo games never cease to surprise me when it comes to sales.

This game is probably funding Pikmin 3 successfully.
SSSBOLIMAR (on 05 April 2009)
the screenshot is wrong that is from pikmin 2 only yellow red and blue are in pimin 1
killeryoshis (on 05 April 2009)
For some reason my pikmin keep dying for no reason.
SnowFlow (on 04 April 2009)
Love this game, can't wait till Pikmin 3
Chrizum (on 03 April 2009)
Pikmin 3 is already being made.
killeryoshis (on 02 April 2009)
Please sell I want pikmin 3
Green Penguin (on 01 April 2009)
Others data yeah!!!!
Green Penguin (on 29 March 2009)
The controls are great for this game! Waiting for Pikmin 3!
stof (on 29 March 2009)
Well said naruto. We can't have people buying games based on what games they want to buy.
naruto3336 (on 28 March 2009)
Please do not buy this game. I MEAN COME ON!! just for the controls? the graphics are updated but can you tell??? Buy some more creative and ORIGINAL games like Deadly Creatures or for hardcore gamers Tenchu, HotD:O and MadWorld.
Finnbar (on 24 March 2009)
How are the controls in comparison to GC? anyone?
trestres (on 21 March 2009)
Why aren't Other tracked? Maybe the game bombed massivley, like Disaster?
DanielD (on 13 March 2009)
Great game.
SmokedHostage (on 12 March 2009)
Very charming game. Hard as well.
shakarak (on 05 March 2009)
In America I expect sales of 600k lifetime.
dark_gh0st_b0y (on 23 February 2009)
great idea to release this again, it's such a good game to be released only on GC where the success was limited due to the smal userbase
sparkit34 (on 18 February 2009)
I had never played Pikmin before, but now its officially one of my favorite games.
But I cannot even imagine how one would have played this game without a Wiimote.
Green Penguin (on 10 February 2009)
I predict 1.1 million lifetime
okr (on 06 February 2009)
Nice bonus: It comes with a reversible case cover.
tuoyo (on 04 February 2009)
Just release Pikmin 3 would you
SmokedHostage (on 13 January 2009)
The original sold 560k in Japanese, considering that this is selling well.
bigjon (on 08 January 2009)
wow... already better sales than I expected out there, should make 250k so out there in time.
kopstudent89 (on 05 January 2009)
smart... many in Japan havent played pikmin, so before pikmin 3 they added a gamecube port... its kinda like an advertisement, plus its cheap, so it will be profitable also. Smart move!
sep85dd (on 04 January 2009)
He, Japan likes the Gamecube, after itīs dead ;-)
ganondorf7799 (on 03 January 2009)
I love Pikmin...
damkira (on 11 December 2008)

You're right, casual Wii
gamers care a lot of who made the game.
My cousins bought Moto GP 08, which they
sold after 3 weeks...and now they buy
only Nintendo games. Pikmin for what I
know is a good game, and being a
Nintendo game helped pushing its sales.
I'm sure if No More Heroes was made by
Nintendo (and marketed too) it would
have reahed 1m (the first one).
killeryoshis (on 24 April 2010)
People must look at the box and try to
find a nintendo logo. To see if its
worth buying because how can this sell
so well. Its a port of a game that did
better than any 3rd party game that the
interwebs cares about. It outsold no
more heros! Nintendo must have a big
brand name or they did somthing right
jeffrey9999 (on 18 April 2010)
best nintendo franchise ever made, I got
this for 10$ at sears appliance store
and I owned a gamecube and never played
a pikmin game until that day, since then
I beat it 3times and I got the 2nd one
yesterday at gamestop used for 40$ on
gamecube since the 2nd one never came to
america on wii and thats 10 shy of what
the game cost new back when it came out
in 2004 "expensive" but so far I
really think it was worth it not to
mention the trouble I had with my car on
the way and I also had to call every
gamestop I new of and then I had to get
a gamecube controller and memory card at
some other store............. pikmin 1&2
in my opinion are not only the best
nintendo games made but I also think
they should be in the top 10 games of
all time not to mention my 1&2 best
games I've ever played, can't wait for
pikmin 3 and I hope it has some small
side story to bring back the 30day timer
and I hope it has a main story without
it like pikmin 2 but you have to have
them both because they are completly
different games because of it "find
them and buy them" and if you give each
of them an hour or 2 then you'll add
them to your permanent collection of
games you'd never sell..............
dark_gh0st_b0y (on 19 January 2010)
wow!

good sales, same for Pikmin 2
(if you think it's not even out in
America)

i guess Pikmin 3 will sell
over 2m
BigGumby (on 10 January 2010)
yes! Great sales for a remakes, I wish
Pikmin 2 would come to America on Wii.
Let's get more Pikmin fans! :D
