I guess we spoke too soon on forgetting Hocotate Freight's petty debt. A rerelease of the Wii U's Pikmin 3, Pikmin 3 Deluxe features all the original DLC content from the original game plus a new co-op option for the main story mode, selectable difficulty modes, achievements in the form of badges, as well as a whole new side story where you play as Olimar and Louie before and after the events of the main game!

This article brought to you by Hocotate Freight. We have plenty of money and are totally not constantly in debt!

Unused Graphics

Test Graphics

Cacti speak Japanese.

This game has text or audio that needs to be translated. If you are fluent with this language, please read our translation guidelines and then submit a translation!

Two test images can be found in the games files. One appears to show an early version of the Side Stories menu...

...and another appears to reveal that the Pikmin Short Movies were planned to be added to the game! In the final game, they do not appear anywhere, and the Pikmin Short Movies are hosted on Nintendo's YouTube channel. A placeholder graphic for the short movie thumbnails depict a Whiptongue Bulborb.

Unused Enemies

An early version of the Whiptongue Bulborb. Due to its low polycount and relative simplicity, it can either be assumed that this is from the days Pikmin 3 was being developed on the Wii or as a placeholder.

Unused Maps

Hmmm...
To do:
Explain about the unused maps.

Unused Music

Menu Music

Unused menu music similar to the one used in the Side Stories mode. Likely would've been used in the cut menu for the Pikmin Short Movies.
