During the Nintendo Direct, we got a look at the latest trailer for Pikmin 4 alongside a release date. The official Pikmin website was then updated with all the new details for the upcoming title and a small comic that most would have missed.
This comic details the new character trying to pick her first Pikmin from the ground. This adorable little comic is the only one currently on the website, but looking at the details, it’s easy to see that more comics will be available in the coming days until the game’s full release.
Pikmin is a strategy game involving the titular characters and a space-faring captain attempting to survive on a hostile yet strangely familiar planet. The games have featured a full-day cycle that acts as a time limit before the player must set off from the planet to stay safe from the dangerous fauna.
In Pikmin 4, you customize your explorer and lead the charge daily to find your crew and fix the Rescue Corps ship, the S.S. Shepherd. Lead your squad through vast explorable areas to find treasures, discover new paths, and battle enemies of all sizes.
You can also direct the Pikmin to collect and carry helpful resources for your mission. Furthermore, you can also get help from a second player in the Story mode. Using an on-screen pointer, your co-op buddy can throw pebbles at enemies to stun them and unleash valuable items in your inventory.
If you haven’t seen the comic go ahead and check it out via our gallery below or the official Pikmin Website.
Pikmin 4 will be released on Nintendo Switch on August 17, 2023.
