Nintendo has confirmed a release date for Pikmin 4, news that was shared to open this week’s Nintendo Direct presentation.
The small, plant-like creatures are back, ready to help you explore a strange planet on your next grand mission. In a new three-minute trailer for the upcoming Nintendo Switch exclusive, we are not only introduced to the new Ice Pikmin that can be used to freeze enemies and the environment but also to Oatchi.
This playful Space Dog will be able to help you smash obstacles and carry Pikmin throughout your adventure, helping you to overcome the challenges that you are confronted with.
Nintendo’s legendary Shigeru Miyamoto introduced Pikmin 4 when it was first shown in the September 2022 Nintendo Direct, explaining: “Nintendo Switch has made controlling the game simpler, meaning you can further concentrate on the core essence of Pikmin gameplay. We call it ‘Dondori’ in Japanese, or strategically planning, deploying and commanding the Pikmin. I hope you are all looking forward to Pikmin 4.”
Pikmin 4 will release at retail and digitally on the Nintendo eShop for Nintendo Switch worldwide on 21st July 2023.
