The following article or section is in need of assistance from someone who plays Pikmin 3 Deluxe.
Particularly: Expand on how the player can change the difficulty in the file select screen, and finish the table. Also, add drowning times for Pikmin under the effects of a spray, since they drown faster.

Difficulty is a feature in Pikmin 3 Deluxe that alters aspects of the game in order to adjust how easy or hard it is. These aspects include the length of a day and the strength of enemies.

Upon creating a save file on the file selection screen, the player will be prompted to choose a difficulty. There are 3 options: Normal, Hard, and Ultra-Spicy, in increasing order of difficulty. The latter can only be unlocked once the player has completed the story mode in Hard difficulty, or completed the demo.


Subject Normal Hard Ultra-Spicy
Day duration 18 minutes 13 minutes 13 minutes
Enemy health Enemies usually have lower health than on the Wii U original[1] Most enemies have twice as much as health than on normal difficulty[1]
Nectar eggs Common More than in the original game, but less than on normal difficulty Same as the original game
Pikmin limit 100 100 60
Pikmin drowning time 11 seconds 6 seconds 3 seconds
