Runtime: 5 hours
Captain Olimar, an intergalactic space traveler and family man, was taking his spaceship out for another leisurely ride, but along the way he came face-to-face with a deadly meteor that sends his spaceship crashing down to an unknown planet. When he comes to, Olimar realizes that he needs to repair his spaceship in a very strict time limit, otherwise he will fall victim to the planet’s deadly creatures and obnoxious, atmospheric gases! He is not alone however, as he will gain the help of the planet’s friendly plant creatures, known as Pikmin, to help him accomplish this nearly impossible feat!
This was the seventh “replay” project I did on my channel, as I had done some videos for the game at a prior date, but due to the poorer quality of the project, I decided to redo the project with a modern spin. The videos for the old project are still available for viewing on my channel, but there is no longer a playlist associated with that version.
Like Donkey Kong 64, Pikmin was another game that I felt I needed to redo and make it better, as the game itself is truly a work of art. Like most of my replay projects, this decision was met with nothing but affirmation and positive responses. Not only that, but I feel like my playthrough was done in a very excellent manner, being one of my best runthroughs that I’ve ever done! I also covered the Challenge Mode as well, something absent from the original project.
