The deluxe release features new difficulty modes and side-story missions.
The previously leaked Pikmin 3 Deluxe has been officially launched for the Nintendo Switch. The strategy title, which originally launched on the Wii U back in 2013, will be coming to the Switch in enhanced form later this year in October.
Pikmin 3 Deluxe will come with various additional features and new content. In addition to the base game and all the DLC that was released for it, the package will also include new difficulty options, and also allow players to play through the campaign in local co-op. Meanwhile, new side-story missions featuring Olimar and Louie have also been added in.
Other new features have been confirmed as well. Players can now make use of lock-on targeting, while the game now also has optional hints to allow for a more relaxed pace. Another new feature added in the deluxe release is the Piklopedia, which will contain information on creature you meet throughout the game, and also dole out badges for completing challenges.
Pikmin 3 Deluxe launches for the Switch on October 30. You can check out its announcement trailer below.
