Although all three main games in the Pikmin series have received high marks from critics, the franchise has never achieved blockbuster success. Therefore, Pikmin 4’s development has always been in limbo as Nintendo considers whether or not to continue the series
Back in 2015, Shigeru Miyamoto, the series creator, was cited as claiming that Pikmin 4 was “very close to completion,” causing fans to hope that a new game was on the way. Some believe that Miyamoto meant Hey! Pikmin, a 2017 launch title for the New Nintendo 2DS XL.
Miyamoto said, “I have been told not to share anything about this from PR, but I can tell you it is progressing,” when questioned two years later about the development of Pikmin 4. Nintendo had been silent on when Pikmin 4 would be available since 2017, but that all changed during the September Nintendo Direct.
During the webcast, Miyamoto discussed Pikmin Bloom and confirmed that the next installment in the series would be released sometime in 2019.
Speculations about Pikmin 4’s release date
The release date for Pikmin 4 is set for 2023. This was revealed in a Nintendo Direct on September 13, 2022, so we know it is true. There has been no further announcement from Nintendo, which is disappointing. We anticipate that Pikmin 4 will not be launched until at least the second half of 2023, which is still a long way off.
Storyline of Pikmin 4
The Pikmin 4 reveal trailer shows us that the game will take place in a new environment reminiscent of a backyard. A brand-new orange species has been spotted resting next to a stopwatch attached to a fence. The presence of a butterfly and a park bench also hints at a suburban setting for Pikmin’s narrative. Similarly to Obsidian’s Grounded, the normally diminutive Pikmin will find this landscape to be vast in comparison.
Gameplay of Pikmin 4
The Pikmin we have come to know and love—yellow, blue, and red—are all back in evidence, suggesting that the series’ signature action-puzzle gameplay will return. However, in this new game, the camera will be positioned lower to the ground, offering a unique view of the action. At this time, no other information is available regarding the launch of Pikmin 4.
