Pikmin 3 Deluxe
|Pikmin 3 Deluxe|
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!
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.
Both images have Japanese text that means "This is an image that will be deleted if there are no problems". The first image also has Japanese text that reads "Planned for deletion" in large characters.
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.
Explain about the unused maps.
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.
