Pikmin 3 Deluxe Edition: Could Be Coming To Nintendo Switch

Is Pikmin coming to Nintendo Switch?

According to a new report, Pikmin 3 is coming to the Nintendo Switch.

A VentureBeat article from Jeff Grubb suggests that a deluxe version of the Wii U game could be launching in the near future.

Considering Nintendo's success with porting Wii-U titles to their latest console, it's perhaps not surprising. We've seen the likes of Mario Kart 8: Deluxe, Donkey Kong: Tropical Freeze and Captain Toad's Treasure Tracker come to the Switch, while this month's release of Xenoblade Chronicles is a re-release of a Wii title.

Rumours have long suggested that Nintendo's 2020 could be defined by remasters, with rumours continuing to circulate about remastered 3D Mario titles including Mario 64 and others, potentially as part of an "All-Stars Bundle".

Yesterday's reveal of Paper Mario: The Origami King, a game that was also rumoured from the same sources, suggests we may not have to wait long to find out.

Pikmin 3 originally launched in 2013, receiving unanimous praise from most outlets and a Metacritic score of 87/100.
