Almost 48 hours to go people! I’m taking vacation from work this Friday and binging on Pikmin 3 Deluxe all weekend. Just 2 more work days...

@ToadBrigade
You must feel like a kid in a candy store at this point.

Saw your post about never playing MH but now being really excited for Monster Hunter Rise, and now the demo turned you on to Pikmin 3... such great games. I wish I could re-live my first experience with them. My first time playing Monster Hunter and Pikmin was in 2013, with Monster Hunter 3 Ultimate and Pikmin 3 on Wii U.

Kinda feels like reliving that in a way, with Pikmin 3 Deluxe and Monster Hunter Rise just months apart. But nothing tops that first experience.

@JaxonH Lol, yeah, the next few months could turn out to be the best I’ve ever spent gaming. So many series I’ve never tried before, from MH to Pikmin to Warriors, and they all seem to have so much potential. Not to mention 3D World, which looks like it has what it takes to be my favorite Mario, especially with its multiplayer mode. Then BotW and Hollow Knight are a couple of my favorite games of all time, and they’re both getting sequels in the (hopefully) near future. It’s a great time to be playing games, and I’m not even interested in next-gen!

Are you guys disappointed that the game will be 720p / 30fps like it was on Wii U, even in docked mode?

@dionysos283
The frame rate was never going to double. It’s a Wii U game ported to Switch, not PS5. On a scale of 1 to 10, maybe a 1.5/10 of disappointment. I mean sure, do I wish it got a res bump? Ya, that would have been nice. But that’s such a teeny, tiny complaint. The game already looks amazing. Looks excellent in handheld too. The game itself is fantastic, they’ve added a crap ton of QoL additions and new content alongside all the DLC, included two different gyro control schemes, and it’s the first ever handheld Pikmin (and better yet, hybrid so we don’t lose the TV play to get it on handheld).

In light of all that, sure, I guess I was slightly disappointed... for like 2 seconds. Then I shrugged my shoulders and continued on board the hype train.

@JaxonH “first ever handheld Pikmin”? What about Hey! Pikmin?

@ToadBrigade 3D World is IMO the best multiplayer platformer ever made, bar none. If you can get a full group of 4, it's supremely chaotic fun, and even 2 is amazing.

We don't talk about Hey Pikmin!... but it's also a Pikmin game in name only so, this is the first time we've gotten an actual Pikmin game that's portable.

@dionysos283 Not particularly? The game looks amazing even in 30 FPS (Look at threads on the matter from back in the day, and you'll see that most people assumed it ran in 60 FPS after playing it). Thanks to the camera angle and speed, as well as the consistency with delivery, the frame rate is pretty perfect for the game.

I'd have like a resolution bump, but it's pretty clear they put the extra power into allowing co-op in the large story mode stages, which is FAR more important to me than a few extra pixels. I'll be playing this mostly in co-op most likely, whereas I probably wouldn't have rebought it for just a res bump.

@ToadBrigade
Nothing against Hey Pikmin! but it wasnt really a normal Pikmin game. They did the best they could to represent the franchise on 3DS, but it's a franchise that needed a platform with a little more power (and better than 240p resolution- partly why the Pikmin had to be so large in that game).

So I bought this on my lunch break today (release day) and played it for a while after work and tonight.

Can't say I'm enamoured with it, which is weird. Played the demo and loved it about three weeks ago and couldn't wait for the full game to release. Was able to transfer over my progress from the demo, which was a bonus. But I don't know, maybe the novelty of it has just worn off - I don't hate the game, but I'm not exactly immersed in it nor jumping out of my skin to come back to it after I switched it off earlier.

Maybe it will grow on me with more play, who knows.

No, because the game looks fantastic, handheld or docked.

@JaxonH I know, but I’m trying to save a little money right now, so it will unfortunately not be a day one purchase for me. Definitely going on the Christmas list though! I hope you have fun with the game!

I definitely will.

Let us know your thoughts whenever you do end up getting it.

I just downloaded the full version of this game on my Switch Lite. It is pretty awesome.

Heck ya it’s awesome. It’s SO good.

I took vacation day yesterday for the release but ended up just importing my data and checking out Control Cloud Edition and Hyrule Warriors demo.

Today I dived into Pikmin 3, and wow. I’m in love all over again. The area immediately after the demo is so big and sprawling. Add yellow Pikmin into the mix and separate characters on different parts of the map, and it’s quite intriguing.

I lost 35 Pikmin on Day 5. Ughh. But Days 6, 7 and 8 I lost none. Could have re-done that day but I decided to just roll with it and whatever happens happens.

We played Pikmin 3 Deluxe in two-player splitscreen co-op.
Am I shocked that the graphics aren't better than the already amazing looking Wii U version? No.
I'm shocked that the Switch has the same graphics and is able to double them for a true local co-op experience.

Nintendo did the right thing. Smooth co-op makes the game much better than a higher resolution.

Pikmin 3 really is a gorgeous game. I love rotating the fruit and seeing it as the light hits it. And I love watching the water ripple, and the little Pikmin scurry across the landscape with the little leaves, bulbs and flowers on their heads.

Just hit Day 12/13. Beat the sandworm boss thingy in Tropical Wilds. Pikmin 3 gives a certain feeling when exploring that no other game comes close to. I love feeling lost and overwhelmed, wondering where to go next to look for fruits and secrets and filling out the map. Speaking of which, I do appreciate the map being shown to some extent before exploring. I remember it being nothing but pure black around the areas you’d explored, so you had no idea what lied beyond or where to head next. Which did make it more thrilling in a sense, but also a lot more confusing. They’ve found the right balance here.

I preordered from Amazon but didn't pay the exorbitant cost for release day shipping, which would have added something like $15 to the price, and opted for free shipping instead. A notice at the time of purchase said it could take up to ten days after release before the game would ship.

Plot twist: it's scheduled to be delivered today.

Apparently it's sales on Switch are worse than what it did on the Wii U...it's not looking good for Pikmin 4.

It’s a great game and also has a demo. I think most are put off by the high price
