A month's worth of festivities
As the Northern Hemisphere approaches the depth of the winter, many of us have broken out gloves and scarves in order to stay warm during our walks. The Pikmin seem to have caught on to the trend, too, as for this event we’ll not only welcome back the 3 existing types of Mitten Decor Pikmin who already appeared last year, but we’ll also meet 4 new types!
As a special surprise, this holiday event will also feature Winter Sticker Decor Pikmin, who made an original appearance in December 2021! Don’t miss this chance to grow your squad!
Pikmin Bloom’s 2023 Holiday Event runs from December 6 0:00 local time to December 27 23:59 local time, and you can get the complete details below.
Clear Event Challenge missions to obtain seedlings for Mitten Decor Pikmin
For every Event Challenge mission that you clear, you’ll be able to obtain rewards at random. These can be Gingerbread Cookies, seedlings that grow into Mitten Decor Pikmin, flower petals, or other items. Additionally, when the Big Flower at the center of the stage blooms, you’re guaranteed to receive a Gold Seedling on top of the random rewards.
Mission for the event will be published here on the day the event starts – stay tuned!
Seedlings obtained through clearing Event Challenge missions will grow into either Red, Yellow, Blue, Purple, White, Winged or Rock Mitten Decor Pikmin. Please note that you’ll meet them at random and are not guaranteed to complete the whole set.
Collect Gingerbread Cookies to obtain special Mii costumes
Once the event starts, you’ll receive missions (20 in total) requesting you to collect Gingerbread Cookies. By clearing these missions, you’ll be able to obtain special Mii costumes and seedlings for Winter Sticker Decor Pikmin.
Here are the costumes you may be able to obtain through these missions:
Gingerbread Cookies can be obtained from flower planting, Mystery Boxes, as a bonus with the purchase of an Event Premium Pass, and from the Event Challenge Special Pack.
Planting 100 flowers awards 1 Gingerbread Cookie. The total number of Gingerbread Cookies obtained while flower planting will be displayed in the results screen.
The seedlings obtained from clearing these missions grow into Red, Yellow, Blue, Purple, White, Winged or Rock Winter Sticker Decor Pikmin at random. Please note that there’s no guarantee that you’ll complete the whole set. Please also note that Winter Sticker Decor Pikmin appear under the “Roadside” category in your Decor Pikmin Collection.
Once the Holiday Event ends, the Gingerbread Cookie missions will disappear. Please note that the Gingerbread Cookies have no purpose outside of this event.
