Nintendo Updates Pikmin 4 to Version 1.0.1

The Pikmin 4 Experience Has Been Tweaked and Improved 

Nintendo has released a new patch, version 1.0.2, for Pikmin 4, the latest entry in the Pikmin series. The patch includes several bug fixes that will be applied to the game once the save data is reloaded. Additionally, the loading screens now feature a progress bar. The update will also be available for the Pikmin 4 demo, where certain save data carries over. The full list of changes added to Pikmin 4 can be found on the Nintendo support page:

  • Bug Fixes (Applied after Reloading Save Data) If you experience any of the following issues, please download this update, then reload your save data from the file-selection screen.
    • Fixed an issue where some treasures would disappear when the player rewound time.
    • Fixed an issue where dialogue would fail to proceed when the player talked to castaways with side missions.
    • Fixed an issue where all characters would disappear from the Rescue Command Post.
    • Fixed an issue where the player would not have enough glow sap needed for treatment. (If the player doesn’t have enough glow sap as a result of this bug, their stock will be replenished with that amount at the end of the day.)
  • Other Bug Fixes
    • Fixed an issue where the player could significantly increase the number of Pikmin.
    • Fixed an issue where the player’s screen would remain dark after they skipped a cutscene.
    • Fixed an issue where some treasures would stop being transportable. (If the treasure was already in a state where it couldn’t be transported, it’ll return to its original position after three in-game days—then the player will be able to transport it.)
    • Fixed other issues to improve gameplay experience.
  • Regarding Loading Times
    • A progress bar has been added to loading screens so players can see progress on loading times.
