It's coming after a few weeks wait, wouldn't be surprised if Pikmin 2 comes somewhat soon to have the trilogy available digitally ready for Pikmin 4.

So many games, so little time... and money

People keep saying the Xbox One doesn't have Backwards Compatibility.
I don't think they know what Backwards Compatibility means...

YES! I'll definitely be getting this! Glad to see it coming so soon (and glad I didn't buy it for $35 from GameStop this weekend).

So Gamecube games finally hit VC... Sort of anyway.

I found Pikmin 1 hard to get into (this was after 100%ing Pikmin 2's story mode and perfecting about 2/3rds of it's challenges). That 30 day timer just makes me think I'm doing anything and everything wrong. Like I need to be absolutely perfect. I think it was the only GameCube game I owned that I never beat.

3 gives a somewhat similar impression. You can extend your time, sure... but fruit is ultimately capped, from what I've heard. So it sits unbeaten... like a lot of my games nowadays. That being said, I was enjoying it.

Hopefully 2 gets added. I don't have a reliable way to play my Gamecube games, so at least this would be one more game I can revisit.

Time isn't an issue in Pikmin 3 since you can get up to 99 days worth of juice, so unless you don't bother exploring occasionally then time is the least of your concerns.

I hope Pikmin 2 gets an eshop release as well since it's hard going back to the GC versions after using the superior Wii Remote controls.

For most games you're right, but this isn't true for Pikmin. As much as I dislike the waggle controls in games like Skyward Sword; they work brilliantly in Pikmin. Your range is vastly improved, as well as your ability to quickly move the cursor around on screen. So I'd have to agree that the New Play! versions are the definite and superior versions of Pikmin 1 and 2.

I hated it in Pikmin 3, so...yeah. >.>
I just stuck with the GamePad for that game.

@Joeynator3000 I think you're part of the minority then. The overall consensus seems to be that motion controls work a lot better for Pikmin. Especially in Pikmin 3, with the GamePad displaying the map while docked on the charged. That worked pretty well.

I always had issues with it, was very annoying, especially when it caused me to lose Pikmin.
