While there were a bunch of surprising releases yesterday that surely got you all excited, there is still plenty of new content on Nintendo eShop this week. Some of these we talked about previously in the Nintendo Direct Mini breakdown, but beyond that is the week we finally get the full version. Pikmin 3 and a slew of great indie games.
Something important to note: Nintendo is currently offering a 7-day free trial of Nintendo Switch Online. This is redeemable through My Nintendo for zero Platinum Points, and the offer ends on November 2 at 8:59 p.m. PT.
Unless stated otherwise, all discussed content is available starting today, October 29.
PIKMIN 3 FINALLY ARRIVES HOME
The wait is over. Following the original Wii U release in 2013 and a number of DLC content packs released throughout the following year, the Pikmin the series died out on home consoles. Nintendo Switch’s release Pikmin 3 Deluxe includes all content from the Wii U version and adds a new prologue and epilogue featuring Captain Olimar and Louie, and adds co-op play to the story mode.
Pikmin 3 Deluxe will be available on October 30. A free demo is available now.
