Remade (Wii-made?) Versions Of 'Mario Tennis' And 'Pikmin' Heading To Wii

Siliconera has learned that North American Wii owners will be getting retooled versions of Mario Tennis and Pikmin as part of the Let's Play on Wii series. For those of you that are unfamiliar with Let's Play on Wii, it's a selection of GameCube titles that are being ported to the Wii; they will be available for a budget price and take advantage of the Wii's motion-sensing controls. Other Let's Play on Wii titles, for the Japanese market, include Chibi Robo, Donkey Kong: Jungle Beat, Metroid Prime, and Metroid Prime 2: Echoes



While these releases totally fit into Nintendo's customary strategy of selling us the same game eight times (at least), let's try to keep things positive. Mario Tennis absolutely makes sense as a Let's Play on Wii game. I imagine it will play similarly to Wii Sports' tennis portion. Pikmin should also be easier and potentially more fun with a Wiimote. What GameCube games do you guys want to see on Let's Play on Wii? How would your dream remakes take advantage of the Wii's controls? Leave a comment and let's discuss. I'll kick it off with the first comment.
