Nintendo officially announced the release of Pikmin 4 during its Nintendo Direct September 2022 presentation. Here is everything we know about the upcoming release.
Pikmin 4 Coming in 2023
Pikmin 4 is set to launch for Nintendo Switch in 2023. Pikmin 4 is here after a decade since the series' last release of Pikmin 3. The trailer shown during Nintendo Direct demonstrated the lush environment that is similar to Pikmin fans.
The trailer did not show any gameplay, but Shigeru Miyamoto discussed some elements of the game that players can look forward to. Players will be able to play from the perspective of Pikmin, which is near the ground. Nintendo also focused on making the game simpler to concentrate on the gameplay. While there is a new perspective, Miyamoto promises that the game will feature the classic "dondori" gameplay. Players will also be able to plan, develop and command Pikmin strategically.
Nintendo released that there will be more detailed information in the future as the game's release on Switch gets closer.
Pikmin 4 is the follow-up of Pikmin 3, released in 2013 for the Wii U. Nintendo also published Hey! Pikmin for Nintendo 3DS in 2017. In 2021, Pokémon Go maker Niantic developed Pikmin Bloom for mobile devices. If you want to pass the time until Pikmin 4 is released, you can purchase Pikmin 3 for 30% off on the Nintendo eShop.
