The Pikmin franchise has always walked a line between relaxing and stressful. One moment you’re out collecting trinkets and exploring, the next you’ve lost 30 Pikmin to a surprise enemy. Pikmin 4 looks to alleviate that pressure with a brand-new feature.

Our very own Quence had the chance to play Pikmin 4 ahead of its launch, and he got the full details on a new time-rewind mechanic that’s sure to make newcomers feel a lot more relaxed.

Pikmin 4 has a time limit for each day just like previous games, but now there’s also a rewind functionality built right into the game. At any time if you lost some Pikmin or made a mistake or just want to start over for any reason, you can rewind to an earlier point. You can do this as many times as you want without being penalized.

I know this is the kind of thing some people will say makes the game too easy, but I think it's perfect. It's a time-saving feature that makes it so you don't have to start the entire day over, and a person can simply choose not to use it if they like a challenge.
