Pikmin 3 Deluxe Arrives In October

There had been rumblings prior to the announcement, but Nintendo has officially confirmed that Pikmin 3 Deluxe will be coming to Switch this fall! This is a (ahem) deluxe port of the Wii U favorite. Take a gander:

Prepare yourselves, brave explorers! Set-off for the lush planet PNF-404 when #Pikmin 3 Deluxe lands on 10/30! This version features multiple difficulty modes, new side-story missions featuring Olimar & Louie, and all the DLC from the original release.

As the Tweet above notes, the game drops on October 30. So, what makes this deluxe port so, well, deluxe? Here’s a rundown from Nintendo’s press release of what comes in the box:

Pikmin 3 Deluxe delivers a full suite of additions and enhancements, including the ability to play the whole Story mode in co-op with a friend, new side-story missions which can also be played in co-op and all the Mission mode DLC stages from the original game’s release. With new difficulty options, lock-on targeting, optional hints and the choice to play at a more relaxed pace, it’s easier than ever to join in on the Pikmin fun, enjoy the game’s beautiful scenery and get a taste of what this vibrant world has to offer. Fun features from the original game also return in Pikmin 3 Deluxe, such as the in-game camera, which allows players to snap photos of the game’s lush environments and curious creatures from a pint-sized perspective.

For seasoned players who are ready to deploy their Pikmin-plucking skills in some new challenges, Pikmin 3 Deluxe adds new side-story missions featuring Olimar and Louie exploring planet PNF-404. And for a bit of friendly Pikmin-flinging fun, there are even head-to-head multiplayer matches available in Bingo Battle.”

That’s a lot of Pikmin goodness, and for those who missed out on Pikmin 3, there should be a lot of excitement to finally be able to play what is a truly wonderful game. In an interesting side development, anyone who’s been waffling on downloading the original Pikmin 3 on Wii U for that quite appealing budget price tag of $20 has missed out, as Nintendo has pulled the game from the eShop. The company acted similarly when Donkey Kong Country: Tropical Freeze came to Switch, removing its similarly budget-priced variant from the digital storefront.
