It’s time for Pikmin 3 Deluxe to release on the Nintendo Switch. After remaining a Wii U exclusive since its initial release in 2013, the game is making the leap to the newest Nintendo console.
The Pikmin series involves organising tiny creatures (the titular Pikmin) as they assist an astronaut in repairing a broken spaceship. The games have won a cult following for their adorable yet slightly scary strategy gameplay.
Now, as one of the final Wii U exclusives makes its leap to the Nintendo Switch, fans are eager to know the exact time that Pikmin 3 Deluxe will be released on the Nintendo eShop.
What time does Pikmin 3 Deluxe release?
According to Nintendo, Pikmin 3 Deluxe’s release time in the US was midnight 0:00 ET on October 30th, meaning that it has been available from 21:00 PT on October 28th. In the UK, the game has been available since 14:00 GMT on October 29th.
This is based on the standard time that new games are released on the Nintendo eShop. It is worth bearing in mind, though, that not all games adhere to this rule – for example, last week’s Crown Tundra DLC for Pokémon Sword and Shield uploaded at a different time.
That said, it’s expected that, as a game that is also releasing physically, Pikmin 3 Deluxe will follow Nintendo’s standard release time.
How much does Pikmin 3 Deluxe cost?
There is currently a demo on the Nintendo eShop for those who would like to try out Pikmin 3 Deluxe before purchase, in order to make sure that they will like the game.
For those that have already played games in the series in the past, Pikmin 3 Deluxe is an opportunity to enjoy a popular game on a portable platform.
