Add another video to the list to help better explain Pikmin 3 Deluxe, as we have one here that goes a little more into the creatures themselves and how we will go about collecting them in the game. Of course, if you have been a huge fan of the franchise since its inception, you will know these things rather well. You go out, find a colored pellet, bring it back to the ship, and then more start to sprout. It is a basic look but something we will need to know well if we want to find all of the Pikmin and parts needed to complete everything. Especially when the special abilities and powers come in based on said color. Even if they are easy to assume based on the way video games work.
Given the popularity of the Pikmin franchise, these videos do feel a little redundant and such but it is still nice to see more gameplay to experience here. It is also nice to know that in this bundle we will also be seeing a few more side-stories that we did not have the first time around as well. So it looks like Pikmin 3 Deluxe will be more than just a remaster for the Switch here. All great news to have just before we head off to the October 30th release date that is quickly coming up on us. We do need some kind of brightness in video games with all of the darker and horror ones slithering out now.
Pikmin 3 Deluxe — Meet The Pikmin
Grow a squad of adorable, plantlike Pikmin to traverse a strange world and save your planet
Command a capable crop of 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.
Did you still remember all of this from the first time you played Pikmin or was it a needed reminder? Where do you think the side-story will take us and further expand upon everything? Do you think we will see any more of these side-stories going forward or should we just hope for a full new title at this point? Let me know what you are thinking down in the comments.
