Nintendo’s long-awaited sequel in the Pikmin series, announced in 2015, is finally available on the Nintendo Switch. Pikmin 4 sees the player as a recruit of the Rescue Corps, who must travel to a planet to save the group after they crash onto it on a mission to save Captain Olimar. It’s a whole thing. Check out the launch trailer below.
Once again, players can grow and command different Pikmin to complete various tasks. Some are fire-resistant and good at fighting, while others can shatter walls and shock enemies. You also have Oatchi, who serves as a mount and takes on enemy creatures for you. Some newer features include Dandori Battles, where you compete with an NPC to collect items, and Night Expeditions to collect Luminals.
