Read details on the game below:

Guide pintsized creatures in a grand mission on a strange planet!

Meet Pikmin, small, plantlike creatures you can grow, pluck, command, and overpower your enemies with! These curious helpers come in different types—fire is no sweat for Red Pikmin and the brand-new Ice Pikmin can freeze enemies and the environment. Use your Pikmin’s miniature might (and a bit of strategy) to explore this mysterious planet.

You get a dog, too! Oatchi (pronounced oat-chee), resident good boy and dependable partner, can help with things like smashing obstacles and carrying Pikmin throughout your adventure. With the miniscule Pikmin and a capable canine in tow, no challenge is too big!

this game should easily sell better than the previous games, maybe 1 2 3 combined?

Probably will take Pikmin 3 Deluxe's title as best selling Pikmin title, but probab won't pass 5 million. Because it is Pikmin and not, say, Pokemon, that is more than enough for it.

Yeah. I guess I somehow misread Pikmin as coming out on 4/21 somewhere. Chalk it up to sleep issues.

Did you play Pikmin 3? The trailer specifically focused on what's new. Ice pikmin, the dog thingy etc.

I don't even play Pikmin and I noticed plenty of differences.

I finished Pikmin 3 on Wii U and Switch. But I though about new game mechanics in the new game.

The dog is a game mechanic. Freezing water is too. Exploring at nighttime could give the whole thing a new twist.
