Pikmin has not taken off to the extent that it deserves, but Pikmin 3 Deluxe just might change that when paired with Nintendo Switch's software momentum. It's the perfect entry point for the series with a wonderfully balanced campaign that is structured to the player's liking. Challenges are tons of fun, this time slightly bolstered by the additional content from Olimar's Assignment, and Bingo Battle makes for some deceptively fun competitive multiplayer. Pikmin 3 Deluxe is a reminder that this game (and trilogy) succeeds at just about everything it tries. If you have not played Pikmin 3, you really, really should, and Pikmin 3 Deluxe is the perfect opportunity.
