And there goes Pikmin 3's resale value. ;)

Will probably pick up Zelda Ocarina 3D and Super Mario All Stars from bestbuy if they get those in. With GCU it would bring it down to $15.99 if they are $19.99 retail.

Fantastic. I know collector's aren't crazy about this stuff, but I love to get my games as cheap as possible. Time to get Mario Galaxy 2.

Yeah, I'm actually pretty excited for these to come out. I own most of them, but a lot of these titles just aren't as accessible as they should be. I'll definitely pick up Super Mario All-Stars for sure. Glad to see Pikmin 3 in that list.

I hate re-release packaging, always have, but I can't not but sit and laugh at the scalpers who are going to see the bottom drop out on Pikmin 3. Good luck finding some WiiU collectors willing to still pony up that much for the game with that as an option.

I doubt Mario Allstars will be so good though, no way they'll still include the extra content.

Don't have a Wiiu but I'm happy to see these games come out. Games like Zelda and pikmin3 people and GameStop way overcharged those games all the time especially the Nintendo selects on Zelda and punch out. Originally all 17.99 used now 27.99 used

It's bad that Super Mario All Stars is tempting, despite owning most of them on the WiiU eshop now, I just loved the upgraded graphics SMB1 and Lost Levels had. Same with SMB2 and SMB3, but those are available via the Advance games on the eshop too.

The only ones I don't already own are the Mario Party and DKCR 3DS games. I am interested in DKCR 3D, but it's not like I didn't finish the Wii game. (Also it's not particularly hard to find)

I'm glad Pikmin 3 is getting reprinted. The price on that game is ludicrous. Sadly, these won't greatly dent most re-seller prices, because they are different editions. Sure, Pikmin 3 will probably drop from $70 to $60, or something, but it won't equalize with the Selects.

I'd guesstimate that Pikmin will drop closer to $40-50 after some time. Metroid Prime Trilogy and Xenoblade Chronicles both came back down to earth from $80 to that range after about a year after the gamestop reprints happened.
