‘Pikmin 3’ Deluxe Gets New Features & Demo
As with a majority of Nintendo Wii U ports, The upcoming re-release of Pikmin 3 will be getting a few new additions when it arrives on the Nintendo Switch. During a Live-Stream from Nintendo Treehouse, crew members showed off some of the Deluxe version’s features during a playthrough of the game.
One of them is a photo mode, which will allow you to take pictures of your character and their Pikmin. The game also introduces a hint system to help you get through levels faster by simply pressing up on the Control Pad. Other new features include the ability to play as multiple characters, playing the entire game with a friend via local co-op, and a “Piklopedia,” which will feature records of enemies you’ve encounter throughout the campaign.
The biggest addition to Pikmin 3 Deluxe will be a new local multiplayer mode called “Bingo Battle.” Like with regular Bingo, you’ll have to line up four items on your board in a row to win.
Pikmin 3 Deluxe will include new side stories, which will feature Captain Olimar and Captain Louie, explaining what they were doing during Pikmin 3. Finally, Nintendo Treehouse also revealed that a demo is now available for the game, with save data transferred over to the full game.
Pikmin 3 Deluxe will launch on Nintendo Switch on November 30. The original version was released in July 2013 for the Nintendo Wii U.
