You’ve crash-landed on a new planet and adorable, plant-like creatures are all that’s there to save you. That’s how Pikmin 3 Deluxe begins.
The game originally launched on Wii U in 2013, but a new version coming this fall will ensure Nintendo Switch users have more options for cooperative play and a variety of ways to get started in the mystical world. Players survive and thrive through befriending (conquering?) five types of Pikmin, and partner up with the little creatures to defeat enemies, collect items, and more.
Players can explore a variety of environments, such as the snow-covered Distant Tundra, the Twilight River, and the Garden of Hope — each one with new discoveries and new possible threats.
Fans will now be able to play the whole Story mode and side-story missions with friends in co-op. It’s a choose-your-own-pace kind of adventure, with the option to go with more relaxed gameplay or utilize increased difficulty options.
Pikmin 3 Deluxe will be available on Oct. 30 for $59.99. Find more info here.
