The Cosmic Archive (コズミック・アーカイブ?, lit.: "Cosmic Archive") is a treasure found in Pikmin 2. It is actually a Family Computer Disk System disk of the game Nazo no Murasame Jō. This treasure is found on sublevel 3 in the Hole of Beasts, and it is best to take out the fire geysers prior to retrieving it; alternately, Red Pikmin may be issued to carry it.

The writing on it is as follows:


SIDE A 謎の村雨城™

Which means "Family Computer Disk System", "The Riddle of Murasame Castle". The writing on the top is present for all Family Computer Disk System games.


Olimar's journal

The cave we searched today was lined with flame-spewing spouts! The temperature in the cave was absolutely stifling. Oh! That reminds me! I completely forgot to tell Louie about red Pikmin! He's so quiet, I sometimes forget he's even there. This item I salvaged from the cave seems to be some kind of storage device, but I have no way to play back the contents.

Sales pitch

All worldly matters, from time's start to its end, are said to be recorded in this historical vault! It is so huge, decoding it all is impossible. Its mere existence is said to make one philosophical.
