Nintendo has announced that Pikmin 3 Deluxe will be released on Nintendo Switch on October 30, 2020 for $59.99 USD.
Pikmin 3 was originally released on the Wii U in 2013, and the deluxe version adds co-op for the whole story mode and new side-story missions that can also be played with a friend. Furthermore, all the Mission mode DLC stages from the original Pikmin 3 will be included.
The side-story missions see Olimar and Louie exploring planet PNF-404, and Pikmin 3 Deluxe will also have a head-to-head multiplayer mode in Bingo Battle.
New difficulty options have been added to this version, as well as lock-on targeting, optional hints, and the choice to “play at a more relaxed pace.”
In our review of Pikmin 3, we said it “is a delight. There’s nothing else like its gentle combination of exploration, strategy and discovery, and it made me feel both empathy and responsibility for virtual creatures that most games would treat as disposable fodder.”
