The Fortress of Festivity is a very dangerous map. The path will need to be opened up bit by bit by working together with your three leaders. Try throwing a leader somewhere and switching to them or using the Go Here function when in trouble.

The Division of Pikmin Roles is Important

In the Fortress of Festivity, the division of Pikmin roles will be more important than ever. From large fruits to Nuggets, there are a variety of items scattered about in various locations.

Allocating the use of each Pikmins strength such as having the Purple Pikmin transport the large fruits like the Zest Bomb, Insect Condo, Slapstick Crescent, Dusk Pustules, and Seed Hive. While leaving the Nuggets to the fast White Pikmin will lead to higher points.
