During today’s Nintendo Direct, as promised, Nintendo showed off some more from Pikmin 4. They gave fans a lot of new gameplay footage and announced some new features, such as going out at night and using Glow Pikmin. Feel free to check out the new trailer down below and read a little bit about the game from the latest press release. Pikmin 4 is scheduled to launch for Nintendo Switch this upcoming July 21st, 2023. Also, on June 28th a free demo will be available to download.
Welcome to the Rescue Corps. In this game, you are the newest recruit, and you’ll customize your character before setting off to meet the capable Rescue Pup Oatchi and the plant-like creatures called Pikmin. New to the series? Don’t worry – this is a great entry point for anyone that wants to learn more about Pikmin. Collect treasures around the planet to fix the Rescue Corp’s spaceship’s radar and open new areas to explore, including underground caves, where a completely different environment from the surface awaits. Pikmin 4 also features Dandori Battles – try to collect more objects than your opponent within the time limit to win and save the castaway. Plus, for the first time in the Pikmin series, you can eventually set out for night expeditions. But nightfall sends creatures into a frenzy, so stay alert. Thankfully, you’ll come across the new Glow Pikmin to drive them away. Much more awaits on this uncharted planet.
