Pikmin 4

Nintendo has announced Pikmin 4 has just released a new playable demo alongside a new overview trailer.

The new playable demo for the fourth entry in the adventure game series is now available for Switch, via the eShop.

Here’s a rundown on the game, plus the new trailer:

Raise a crop of plantlike Pikmin and guide them on an endearing expedition!

Meet Pikmin, small, plantlike creatures you can grow, pluck, guide, and send into battle with enemies multiple times their size! These loyal, curious helpers come in different types, including fire-resistant Red Pikmin and brand-new Ice Pikmin. The fate of your Pikmin is yours to decide—will you carefully avoid danger or rush into situations despite potential…losses?


  • Create your own explorer and navigate a big planet from a pint-sized perspective
  • Customize your look then embark on a journey to find and rescue fellow explorers. Traverse a world that seems larger than life as you see everyday objects like plants, benches, and pots tower over your explorer and Pikmin.
  • You get a space dog, too! Oatchi (pronounced oat-chee), resident good boy and dependable partner, can help with things like smashing obstacles and carrying you and your Pikmin throughout your adventure. With the miniscule Pikmin and a capable canine in tow, no challenge is too big!
