Nintendo Announces That Pikmin 4 Will Officially Release in Mid July
The Pikmin franchise is one of the most popular in gaming and Nintendo announced Pikmin 4 will release sometime in 2023. At Nintendo Direct earlier this week, the company confirmed that the game will release on Nintendo Switch on July 21st, 2023. As part of the announcement, the company also released a three minute long trailer showing off the game.
In the game, players must guide creatures in a major mission across a strange planet. Thus far, Nintendo has described the game as such, “Meet Pikmin, small, plantlike creatures you can grow, pluck, command, and overpower your enemies with! These curious helpers come in different types—fire is no sweat for Red Pikmin and the brand-new Ice Pikmin can freeze enemies and the environment. Use your Pikmin’s miniature might (and a bit of strategy) to explore this mysterious planet.”
Furthermore, players will have access to a dog, who is a good boy and dependable partner. Players must use the dog to smash obstacles and assist the Pikmin in navigating through their adventure. With an army of small Pikmin and a rather large dog, there are endless possibilities.
From the trailer, viewers got a great look at some of the key elements of the game including fire breathing Pikmin and uses for the dog as they proceed on their adventure. There are surely endless possibilities!
