    First released on the Wii U, Pikmin 3 now makes its way to the Nintendo Switch as a Deluxe version. You will soon be able to command on the go a crew of three explorers and a Pikmin squad to solve puzzles and battle critters as you help your team in its quest for survival .


    The Switch version comes with all the Mission mode DLC stages from the original game’s release as well as some enhancements. These include the ability to play the whole Story mode in co-op, new side-story missions which can also be played in co-op, new difficulty options, lock-on targeting, optional hints and the choice to play at a more relaxed pace.

    Pikmin 3 Deluxe launches on the Nintendo Switch this October 30th.

    Glad this isn't stuck on the Wii U now. All we need now is Mario 3D World and all the good games on it will be ported.

    Hmm I have a dilemma now. I'm working through my huge backlog of games I haven't played yet and this was next on the list. Do I go ahead and play the WiiU version or wait to October for the Switch release.

    If you own it Play it now.
    If you don't own wait for the switch version.

    As a Wii U owner I'm sort of miffed about this, Nintendo is killing what legacy the Wii U had and giving the switch an identity crisis at the same time as stupid as it sounds, of course that's just my mind talking. This is a good thing, though this systems best selling games are Wii U ports and that says a lot

    Awesome! Hopefully this is a sign in favor of an eventual Pikmin 4.

    The more people who play Pikmin 3, Wind Waker HD, etc., the more fans of the series there will be, and the more incentive there will be for Nintendo to make new games in these series. Ports to the Switch are always a good thing.

    How does it compare to the other two? I loved the first one but not so much the second.

    Would have loved a trilogy or at least this and 1+2 but I'll take it! There better be gyro support or we riot.

    They're all pretty much the same, except Pikmin 3 looks the nicest. Metacritic rates them as follows:
    • Pikmin: 89
    • Pikmin 2: 90
    • Pikmin 3: 87
    So, not much of a difference.

    I'm happy these ports are happening for the sake of preservation, before the Wii U becomes more rare and expensive. Fortunately, I have both consoles and sincerely hope my Wii U lasts a long time, since it's still the definitive experience for many of these games. Maybe Nintendo will offer a dual screen option in the future, but who knows.

    What do you know... I hope this leads near to Pikmin 4 somehow.

    I really like the pikmin games, but I don't like the time management aspect. I know it's a big part of the game, but I just want to relax and enjoy it and do everything that needs to be done.
    So I played all three games with cheats to stop the time from advancing, much more enjoyable for me personally. Nice to slow down and appreciate the views, rather than rush and worry! It's still a challenge.

    I think I read they are making a 4th one...? I bet re-releasing 3 is part of the plan :)

    Been literal years since Miyamoto's claims towards that, so yeah. There's plenty ground on this one...
