Wii say U want a resolution
As each month passes the Wii U becomes less and less relevant, as most of its first-party library continues to be lifted up, piece by piece, and carried over to the Switch. Why, it’s almost like what Pikmin do – DO YOU GET WHERE WE’RE GOING WITH THIS? Pikmin 3 Deluxe is Nintendo’s attempt at a definitive port of...
Pikmin 3 Deluxe Guides
Captain Olimar and the gang are back!
Well, that's September down and we're heading into the scariest month of the year (although considering the past nine months of 2020, we've had more than enough of scary events thank-you-very-much — we're hoping for a nice sedate October). September played host to some excellent Switch games, not least Super...
2K save the day
August, you ask? Yes, apparently that entire month flew by in what felt like a week and once again we're back to take a look at the Switch games coming soon to your favourite Nintendo console. It's gotta be said that things are looking a bit slim at the time of writing. To be fair, Nintendo's recent habit of dropping surprise Mini...
Captain Olimar and gang are back
Pikmin 3 Deluxe is a fine entry in the Pikmin series and seeing all that beautiful HD fruit again on Switch has been an utter delight. This Switch port of Captain Olimar and his diminutive minions' Wii U adventure includes all the DLC from the original, plus a smattering of extra content to tempt returning players...
About The Game
Grow a squad of adorable, plantlike Pikmin to traverse a strange world and save your planet
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.
Pikmin at your pace
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.
Play side-story missions, head-to-head matches and more!
This deluxe version of the Pikmin 3 game includes new side-story missions featuring Olimar and Louie, the ability to play Story mode with a friend and all DLC stages from the original release. Feeling competitive? Enjoy fierce head-to-head Bingo Battles and online leaderboards for Mission mode.
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.
When you aren’t busy collecting fruit and saving your planet, try out Mission mode to accomplish set requirements like defeating enemies or collecting items. Looking for some friendly competition? In Bingo Battle you must use Pikmin to retrieve items on your bingo card before your opponent does.
With more options for cooperative play, settings that make it easy for newcomers to start their Pikmin journey, new side stories and more, these tiny Pikmin are in for their biggest adventure yet.
