PIKMIN 3 Deluxe is coming to the Nintendo Switch later this year, with a surprise release date announcement dropping out of the blue today.
Happy to see this is coming to the Switch but I hope there will be more to Nintendo's holiday lineup Edit: just watched the trailer and the game looks really dated... The Switch is home to lots of great looking games this one dates back to 2013 and it looks the part. I hope they wont charge full retail for a cheap port like that.
It's already confirmed to be $60, of course Nintendo will charge you full price for a 7 years old game with barely any new content or updates.
Damn... And that's 80 $ here in 🇨🇦. Oh well they can keep their cheap port I would have been interested but I will pass on this one.
I take a cheap port any day to play this phantastic game again on my switch. Was hoping for this a long time, since I sold my Wii U. I understand that 60$ is too much for some and I highly recommend to those to sell the game after a playthrough for like 50$... This game is so worth playing and sadly many people have missed it because it was Wii U exclusive. Edit: it really looks dated and I wished that Nintendo would have upgraded the graphics a bit for the switch version. While I'm a bit disappointed by Nintendo, I am still looking forward to playing this gem again.
For that price, it should've been a Pikmin Collection.
Well, you trot off and pay your £50/$60 and then pray for more overpriced Wii U games.
You obviously didnt read my full comment...
It’s a shame this was a perfect opportunity to release a complete series set but it’s nice to have a Pikmin release.
For sure. $60 sounds fair for the Pikmin 1-3 collection in one bundle, but Pikmin 3 by itself? No. I'll wait for a sale. :\
See, that would be perfect. I'd gladly pay $60 for a collection, but this just comes off extremely lazy to me.
$60 for 3 old games?? Nintendo: ARE YOU CRAZY?
@badz yea, $30 for Pikmin 3 is fine. It has new levels and co-op. $15 for Pikmin 1 and $15 for Pikmin 2. At least that sounds reasonable.
Sales? Who do you think this is, Ubisoft?
@Rachel_Alucard so true! I'll be waiting over a year if I wait for an eshop sale! I'm sure I'll find it physically on sale somewhere though. Most likely, I'll end up getting it on Black Friday when one of our local stores does B2G1 on all new games.
In September 2015, Miyamoto said that Pikmin 4 was very close to completion. And we get this... By itself... 7 years after its release, not even the full trilogy. That's very disappointing.
Wish they'd do something with Golden Sun, F-Zero or even Diddy Kong Racing
and people honestly believe they're going to release a Mario Collection for 60$
Even if they did release a collection they'd probably charge full price for every game and the hardcore fanbase would be praising and thanking them
a wii U game, huh? Couldn't just make a Pikmin 4? Well, at least it doesn't take much to wow Nintendo fans. Guess Nintendo has that going for them.
We were told 5 years ago that Pikmin 4 was nearly complete, it still hasnt surfaced.
It makes sense to release Pikmin 3 before Pikmin 4 on the Switch, as opposed to releasing them in the opposite order. Now that P3 is coming out soon on Switch, expect the P4 announcement perhaps late this year or early next year? It would have been better if P1-3 collection were released on Switch and sold for $60 though.
Pikmin deserved another chance.
This is it. The $60 chance!
Nintendo get away with murder 🙄
Greediest Motherfu****s on the planet. #Gigaleak
It's probably the best Wii U game and now it has added 2 player coop through the whole story, additional story chapters and a difficulty modifier as well as all the original DLC. Not huge changes by any means, but worth pointing out as a counter to all the people who are going to complain about how Nintendo gets away with murder charging full price for a 7 year old game. On a completely unrelated note, I wonder how much Rockstar is gonna charge for GTAV (a 7 year old game) when it comes to PS5?
Man Nintendo needs to go to drug rehab, cause we all know they're on that dope; with their cracked out prices.
At most should have been $50
More lazy, overpced ports.
One of the few Nintendo first party games I missed on my WiiU so I'll be glad to pick this up on my Switch.
I’m passing on this. My wii u version is more than enough for me.
I want to play this game but not for full retail, Hopefully they have it for sale on black Friday
You have a better chance of winning thr lotto pal
Sony and Microsoft would never be able to re-release an old game at full price.
Loving the surprise release date announcements from Nintendo recently. No cgi teaser trailer that shows a game that may or may not come out in 4 years time. Keep it up Big N.
I really hope this means we hear something about Pikmin 4 soon, it was nearly finished for the Wii U years ago and has been MIA since.
"Oh shit, we don't have any games to release for a while!" "Dig one out of the archive boys, problem solved. Those idiots will lap it up."
Never played a pikmin game, they should've was released all three to give people like me the chance. What's the point in just releasing the third? I was able to buy the Metroid Prime Trilogy on the Wii, with added motion controls, for the price of a regular game.
Nintendo lost a lot of money on the Wii U, plus they ditched the 3DS, only one console to rely on for revenue. I suppose they have to go digging for money. But releasing Wii U games on the Switch for £50 top is a total joke, although Mario Kart 8 was a Wii U port and sells for £50 tops. Exactly the same with Zelda. I'd like to see Mario 3D World, even though I'm not a fan or ports or whatever you call them. Saying that, I've totally given up on sequels to Wave Race, PilotWings and 1080 Snowboarding, so £50 Wii U ports it is.
