Good Things Come To Those Who Wait
Pikmin fans have always had to wait a long time between installments. There was a nine year gap between the second and third games after all. Fans at the time though hoped the wait for a fourth installment would be shorter, especially when series creator Shigeru Miyamoto started talking about a 4th game soon after the third released. We now know that wasn’t to be, but after the same nine year wait, Pikmin is returning with Pikmin 4 in 2023.
Details are still scarce, with no gameplay shown off in today’s reveal during the latest Nintendo Direct. Miyamoto did however promise that players will get to play from closer to the Pikmin’s perspective down on the ground, rather than just playing from the series’ traditional overhead view. Whether this is an option, something we see at times, or how the whole game will be played however remains to be seen.
While we can’t wait to share more news about Pikmin 4 with you, check out the first teaser below.
