Pikmin 4 for Nintendo Switch will be published in 2023, as was unexpectedly revealed on the Nintendo Direct

One of the most important announcements made at the Nintendo Direct on September 13 by Shigeru Miyamoto, the man behind the Mario, Zelda, and Donkey Kong franchises, was the release date for Pikmin 4 for the Nintendo Switch: 2023.

The Nintendo Direct from September 13 featured a brief cameo from Shigeru Miyamoto. The renowned designer of the Mario, Zelda, and Donkey Kong sagas has concentrated on the Pikmin saga.


One of the biggest surprises of the presentation, in addition to demonstrating how Pikmin Bloom works on mobile devices, is the release of Pikmin 4 for the Nintendo Switch, a game that has been in development since 2015.


Although no gameplay of Pikmin 4 for the Nintendo Switch has been seen thus far, development on the game is already far along. The only thing we can look forward to is the picture that appears at the top of this news and a small teaser that hints at the news we can find.


Development based on the "dandori" idea has been kept. This Japanese word translates to "observing the map," "studying the foes," "studying the many paths," and, of course, "studying the resources that our Pikmin will be able to gather."


The most significant alteration is a shift in perspective, with the camera level with the Pikmin (aside from Miyamoto donning a new shirt). Keep in mind that in the previous three games, we often found ourselves with a higher camera, similar to older strategy games.


In his lecture, Shigeru Miyamoto also discussed how challenging Pikmin 4 is on the Switch. Each type of Pikmin's available controls and behaviors will be more straightforward. If the cooperative multiplayer from Pikmin 3 DX will be retained remains to be seen.


Here is our coverage of the September 13 Nintendo Direct, which was focused on the games coming to Nintendo Switch next winter and showed off titles like Octopath Traveler II and the Breath of the Wild sequel, Tears of Kingdom.
