Did you think Pikmin 3 was over? Boy were you wrong. Once you let Pikmin into your home they're basically impossible to get rid of. In this instance, they're seeping through the internets in the form of Nintendo's next Mission Mode DLC. That's right, despite Nintendo saying they only had two Mission Mode DLC packs in the works, Mission Mode 3 is almost here.
$4.99 will net purchasers eight new stages, four "Collect Treasure" stages and four "Battle Enemies" stages. Unlike previous mission mode stages, which are based off of levels in-game, the new ones will be entirely new. Not only that, but they're based off of interesting locations like beaches and construction sites. Okay, maybe not interesting locations, but, erm, at least it's different than before?
In addition to the new areas, the new stages will allow players to play as Captain Olimar! Yes, the chosen one returns. Louie even shows up, apparently. Hopefully Nintendo lets us let the Pikmin eat Louie. That would solve a lot of problems.
Pikmin 3's third Mission Mode DLC will be available starting December 2, exclusively on the Wii U. For all eight stages the cost will be $4.99, but should any player decide to download the software update that comes with the DLC they'll pick up a single "Collect Treasure" stage and a single "Battle Enemies" stage for free. Just remember, the more you encourage them, the harder it is to get rid of these Pikmin.
