Next batch of Pikmin 3 downloadable content available to add even more game play to the Pikmin franchise.
Pikmin 3 is the “newest” installment in the Pikmin franchise and has plenty of replay value to begin with. That has never stopped Nintendo from going that extra mile in terms of game play. Nintendo is still wet behind the ears when it comes to downloadable content that has a minor fee to purchase. With the advancements in the online features for Nintendo systems (maybe a better way to put that would be Nintendo getting better at online features) Nintendo has had more of the purchase-able download content. This isn’t the first set of DLC for Pikmin 3. Earlier in the year, the Mission Mode had extra content added to it by means of DLC.
The Battle Enemies DLC will cost players $1.99 which is nothing compared to other systems/companies and their prices. The download is easy enough to perform through the Nintendo eShop online service. The download is comprised of four stages and one of them is free through an auto-software update.
The download brings players back to the classic locales in the Pikmin universe. The toughness factor has gotten an upgrade with all sorts of creatures roaming the landscape. The new missions can be played in “one-player” or multiplayer and high scores in the mode will be shown on a global leader board. The whole point of the “Battle Enemies” missions are to defeat the most enemies possible and score the highest amount possible.
