It, like other “Deluxe” Switch titles, is a souped-up version of a Wii U game, in this case Pikmin 3. The upcoming Switch version has a handful of new features added to improve the experience, but we’ll get to those below. In the meantime, here’s where you can preorder it now.

In Pikmin 3 Deluxe, you play as a trio of aliens who have landed on a mysterious planet that looks a good deal like Earth. But unlike our blue orb, this planet is populated by tiny helpful creatures called pikmin. It’s also home to vicious alien predators that enjoy gobbling up your colorful new friends.
Your job is to accompany the pikmin and explore the planet in search of food, all while solving environmental puzzles and fending off predators. Everything you do requires you to send pikmin to do it, so they’ll bring food back to your ship and fight enemies for you, no matter how overmatched they seem. You’ll just want to make sure to send the right kind of pikmin for the task.
New to the Deluxe version is a two-player co-op mode, additional side missions, and a handful of difficulty settings to make things easier in a variety of ways. It also includes all of the DLC released for the original.
