Pikmin 3 Deluxe brings a hidden gem from the Wii U to the Switch

Enhanced & Improved

Nintendo has announced Pikmin 3 Deluxe for the Nintendo Switch. The updated remaster of the Wii U original is slated to launch on October 30th. Watch the announcement trailer here!

The Nintendo Switch has proven to be a massive hit among gamers and bonafide comeback story for the legendary Japanese gaming company. After the abysmal flop that was the Wii U, the company really hit it out the park with the handheld-console hybrid.

One nice aspect of the Switch’s popularity is that many of the great exclusive games on the Wii U have received a second chance by getting remasters. In fact, a large number of Wii U games have been ported to date. And with Pikmin 3 Deluxe, a very unique title is the next in line.

Three brave explorers land on planet PNF-404 on a mission to find food for their starving home planet. After a crash landing, these explorers must work with Pikmin to reunite and complete their mission.

Direct, toss and grow Pikmin with different abilities and strengths—winged Pikmin can fly, while blue Pikmin can breathe underwater. By strategically choosing the right Pikmin for the job at hand and changing between the three captains (or coordinating with a second player), you can work efficiently to collect fruit and grow your Pikmin squad.

The whimsical and utterly charming strategy game comes out this October and features an enhanced experience with the inclusion of new missions, the ability to play the entire campaign cooperatively with a friend, and all previous DLCs included.

You can pre-order Pikmin 3 Deluxe now for $59.99.
