If you never got the chance to enjoy the colorful, puzzle-based gameplay of Pikmin 3 on the Wii U, then the release of the ‘Deluxe’ version on Nintendo Switch is the perfect time to experience it for yourself. With a new co-op mode for the entire story and side story content added in to flesh out the experience even further it truly is the definitive way to play the game. It won’t matter if you have a friend by your side if you don’t know how to break glass in Pikmin 3, though. If you don’t, you’re going to find it hard to reach the end of the game.
How to Break Glass in Pikmin 3
Your army of Pikmin will be a rainbow of different colors, but these colors aren’t just a cosmetic look. They also tell you specifically what each of your Pikmin’s ability is. For example, Red Pikmin are resistant to fire and are great at dealing damage to enemies, while Blue Pikmin can survive in and underwater.
To break glass in Pikmin 3, you’ll need to throw your Rock Pikmin. These chonky bois are heavier than all your other types, and their hard bodies can be used to smash all kinds of things (not just glass).
You won’t have access to Rock Pikmin right away, though. You’ll find these naturally as part of the story, specifically in the Garden of Hope stage.
During this level, you’ll find a miniboss named Medusal Slurker that has Rock Pikmin inside of it. All you need to do is defeat the boss and the Pikmin will join your amassing army of adorable creatures.
