And Pikmin 4 is totally coming soon, guys.

Nintendo will be reviving a Elite Four game for Wii U on Switch this fall.

Pikmin 3 Deluxe has been announced for Switch release via a Nintendo of America tweet. Launching on October 30, the game will feature new side missions as well as all of Pikmin 3's original DLC.

Nintendo now has retail releases on consecutive weeks in October, but has no retail releases between Paper Mario: The Origami King and the collected release of Cadence of Hyrule on October 23.

I got Pikmin 3 for cheap or free (can't quite remember) through a Club Nintendo deal back in the day, and never picked up any of the DLC, so I might go for this again.

I guess this pretty much confirms that Pikmin 4 was never actually a thing, and just a translation error (and was probably Hey! Pikmin).

Looks like the Wii U version was already delisted from the Wii U, probably because it was $20 there.

Pikmin 4 will be a re-release of Pikmin 1 next year, to celebrate its 20th anniversary.

Nintendo gonna Nintendo. Someone on ResetEra pointed out the same thing happened with Donkey Kong Country: Tropical Freeze. This would be less shiesty if Nintendo wasn’t also selling the Pikmin 3 Deluxe for $60. As long as people keep buying them, it will keep selling remasters for full price.

That's so grimy

I’m one of those people who didn’t have a Wii U so missed out on Pikmin 3. I’m honestly really excited about this! And you know, I’m gonna think on the positive side here: maybe they’re rereleasing it so that anyone who hasn’t played a Pikmin game before will get to know this charming series and be amped for Pikmin 4 later?

Edit: $60 is steep though... :\

I agree on the consensus of $60 being high.  This feels more like a $50 release, but I never really partook in the DLC, and don't even remember how much it was.  The extra sidequests could've inspired a double dip, but I think I'll pass for now.  Maybe if the voucher program comes back. . .
