Pikmin 4 is already the best-selling Pikmin game ever, but Nintendo wants to keep that tally ticking higher. That’s why they continue to release commercials for the game, and a new spot just released in Japan. Check it out above!
Meet Pikmin: small, plantlike creatures with distinct abilities that you can grow, pluck, guide, and overpower enemies with! Use your Pikmin’s miniature might (and a bit of strategy) to explore this mysterious planet in search of your crew—and treasure.
To succeed, you’ll have to balance caring for the Pikmin with leading them into dangerous situations. Do your best out there! Pikmin grow from pellets and wildlife that you can bring to your ship. Pluck them from the ground to have them join you. Go team!
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 resources that are helpful for your mission. Up to three Pikmin types can be with you in the field at a time—the rest will hang back until you need them.
UPDATE: The English version of this commercial has been released and you can check it out below.
