Pikmin 3 Deluxe features

The features below are listed on the Nintendo eShop in North America for Pikmin 3 Deluxe including 2 player co-op:

  • 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. 

Pikmin 3 Deluxe releases on October 30 for Nintendo Switch.
