In case you never played the original, you can find an overview of the Pikmin 3 Deluxe experience right below.

Grow a squad of adorable, plantlike Pikmin to traverse a strange world and save your planet.

Command a capable crop of five 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.

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