Nintendo Reinstates Pikmin 3 On The Wii U eShop Ahead Of The Switch Release

Pikmin 3

Update: The game has apparently now reappeared for digital purchase on the Wii U eShop. So, if you haven’t played Pikmin 3 before, this means you still have the option to buy and experience the game in its non-Deluxe, vanilla (and much cheaper) form on the hardware it was originally designed for.

Here at Nintendo Life, that’s what we like to call A Very Good Thing™. Thanks to Dogorilla for the tip!


Original Story (Thu 6th Aug, 2020 01:55 BST): It’s official: Pikmin 3 Deluxe is arriving on the Nintendo Switch this October and will come packed with all of the DLC and even some brand new side story content featuring Olimar and Louie.

What does this mean for the future of Pikmin 3 on the Wii U, though? While we wouldn’t normally be asking a question like this – as discovered by Nintendo Everything, the original version of this game has now been delisted from this particular eShop (this includes the removal of the DLC as well). Yep, it’s gone!

On the Nintendo website, the Wii U game page for Pikmin 3 is there, but there’s no longer a way to purchase the game. If you own a physical copy of this title, you can obviously still play it on your Wii U and if you’ve already bought a digital copy from the system’s eShop, you shouldn’t have any problems downloading the game.

Nintendo has pulled this same move in the past with games like Donkey Kong Country: Tropical Freeze – ahead of ‘Deluxe’ re-releases on Switch (although in saying this, DKC:TF has since returned to the Wii U eShop – at least in Europe – and is available for purchase). Pikmin 3 on Wii U was priced at $19.99 and the Deluxe version is valued at $59.99 on Nintendo’s hybrid system.

Did you manage to grab a digital copy of Pikmin 3 for Wii U before it was pulled? Could this just be a temporary removal? How do you feel about Nintendo taking down games while the Wii U eShop is still up and running? Share your thoughts below.
