The 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 (Mysterious Murasame Castle or Murasame's Mysterious Castle in English). 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™
©1986 Nintendo MADE IN JAPAN
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.
- Interestingly, this treasure is not the only connection between Pikmin and Mysterious Murasame Castle. In WarioWare: D.I.Y., a microgame based on Mysterious Murasame Castle is present in the Japanese version, but has been replaced with a Pikmin microgame in the localized versions.
