Pik this up later this year
During today’s Nintendo Direct, it was revealed that both Pikmin 1 + 2 HD were coming to the Switch eShop today. You can snag those titles digitally this very moment, but if you’d rather go the physical route, you’ll have to wait quite a bit.
Nintendo has also revealed that Pikmin 1 + 2 HD will be getting a physical Switch release, but it won’t be available until September 22nd, 2023. Pricing and other details on this package have not been revealed.
Reintroduce yourself to the plantlike Pikmin and strategic gameplay that this charming series is rooted in. From finding a way home to collecting treasure, Olimar (plus Louie in the Pikmin 2 game) must partner with a parade of Pikmin to survive the harshest of conditions. Both games support optional motion controls for more options when guiding your floral friends.
Meet Captain Olimar and a capable cast of red, blue, and yellow Pikmin on a dire mission across a larger-than-life planet. Olimar must guide his loveably-leafy companions through obstacles, in battle, and when collecting his missing ship parts. Your oxygen will only last 30 days, but the Pikmin provide a glimmer of hope that you may make it home.
Swap between Olimar and Louie to divide and conquer in Pikmin 2. Tasked with helping pay off their employer’s debt, the pint-sized pair teams up with Pikmin (including purple and white Pikmin) to collect treasure on…you guessed it…a strange planet. Time ticks away on the surface, but cave systems let you take your time to let your strategy blossom.
