Pikmin 3 deluxe is the Switch version of Pikmin 3 on the Wii U with a different introduction and ending, more difficulty levels, Piklopedia and Co-op mode!
I played Pikmin on the Game cube ages ago at a friends place, so for me Pikmin 3 Deluxe is the first Pikmin I'm playing seriously.
I'm not that far along in the game, but I spend some hours and I enjoy it overall.
It is a happy happy joy joy game, no pressure (except for the time per level) and super sweet Pikmin.
But there's always a but, I find the switching between Alph, Brittany and captain Charlie frustrating and whistling for a few Pikmin is annoying,
because most of the time all the Pikmin react and when you whistle for all of them, there always a few of them stuck.
I think it's because I'm a noob with the game play and think it will get easier with time, but I'm not that good at giving it time.
On the other hand if the game was too easy in game play, it would be a walk in the park and no challenge at all.
I have to try the co-op mode, instead of juggling 3 characters, it will only be 2 and maybe it will be easier the play.
