In the past few hours, after several rumors in recent weeks, Nintendo has finally announced Pikmin 3 Deluxe for Nintendo Switch, an updated version of the title initially released for Wii U in July 2013.
In Pikmin 3 Deluxe there will be not only all the contents of the original game, but also new functions and modes, including local cooperative multiplayer, new adventures, with a prologue and epilogue that have the heroes of Pikmin and Pikmin 2 as protagonists, Olimar and Louie, game experience improvements and even Piklopedia, where you can unlock descriptions written by the characters.
Pikmin 3 Deluxe will be available on Nintendo Switch from October 30, 2020, and will even include all the DLCs from the original game. There will also be the possibility to play Story mode with a friend, a new feature not present in the Wii U version.
The game is also already pre-orderable on Nintendo eShop at a price of $59.99, and it will probably be in a short time also on other stores.
“Command a capable crop of 5 different types of Pikmin to strategically overcome obstacles, defeat creatures, and find food for your famished home planet! You can even bring a second player along to divvy up tasks as you explore a world that seems larger than life from a pint-sized perspective. Return to your ship before time runs out, or you (and your Pikmin) could be in big trouble. If you prefer a more casual approach, a variety of difficulty settings, lock-on targeting and optional hints have been newly added. With less pressure, you have more time to strategically command your Pikmin and take in the lush scenery,” can be read on the official site of Nintendo.
Recall that Pikmin 3 Deluxe will release on Nintendo Switch on October 30. Check the announcement trailer of the game below.
