The Pikmin are back and looking better than ever on Nintendo Switch.

It’s been seven years since the initial release of Pikmin 3 on Nintendo Wii U, but now Nintendo is bringing back the title for Nintendo Switch – and we can’t wait.

Thankfully, there’s a demo available right now that players can pick up and try if they want to see what Pikmin 3 Deluxe is all about.


In the game, players command a crew of explorers as well as, of course, a squad of Pikmin as they try to solve puzzles and survive the dangers of the world. The Deluxe version of the game includes everything players loved about the original, and a host of new additions. You can now play the entire campaign in co-op as well as enjoy new side-story missions, also available in co-op.

You can grab the demo on the Nintendo eShop right now. The demo gives players a chance to try out the Story mode and Mission Mode. You can do so by yourself or grab a friend. When you purchase the full game, any progress from your demo will carry over so you don’t have to play the same bits again. If you defeat the first boss in the demo, you’ll even unlock the Ultra-Spicy difficulty option for the full game.

Pikmin 3 Deluxe will be available on the Nintendo Switch on October 30th for £49.99/$59.99.
