Explore an uncharted planet
On a peculiar far away planet, a group of space travellers are stranded and awaiting rescue. Are you the right rescuer for the job? Pick up their SOS signals and explore an uncharted world inhabited by a curious crop of creatures.
Thankfully, some of them are friends, not foes! Meet the Pikmin – these spirited helpers might be small in stature, but boast strength in numbers. Grow, gather and guide them to tackle tasks big and small.
Explore, hunt for treasure in vast open areas, battle wild critters, solve puzzles and rescue the stranded travellers together.
A cute canine companion
Oatchi, the adorable Rescue Pup, will also join you on your adventure. This dependable companion can smash obstacles, transport heavy objects and carry you and a whole host of Pikmin on his back.
Oatchi can also learn to jump, doggy-paddle, swiftly rush enemies and more. With the help of Oatchi and the Pikmin, no challenge is too big!
Meet the Pikmin!
Pikmin come in a variety of shapes, sizes and colours. Use their miniature might and some strategy to overcome any and all challenges.
You can only take three types with you at any one time, so choose wisely. All others will be waiting safely in the Onion, which acts as both a nest and a ship for the Pikmin.
As their fiery colour suggests, these Pikmin don’t fear the flames. They blaze brightly in battle too, boasting powerful attacks.
These Pikmin are high flyers, literally! Toss them to grab hard-to-reach objects or use their resistance to electricity to handle any electric situations.
True to their colour, the water is a second home for these Pikmin. They can swim in streams and puddles, but they flourish on land too.
These newly discovered Pikmin keep things cool by freezing enemies, bodies of water and more!
These Pikmin are tough! With a rock-like body, they can make quick work of crystal wall obstacles, smashing them to bits!
Wings are not a flight of fancy for these Pikmin! Use their natural gifts to fly objects across water or to lift blockades.
These Pikmin might move slower, but they hit hard and have the strength to carry heavier objects with ease!
Any enemies trying to snack on these Pikmin are in for a bitter surprise! Resistant to poison and poisonous themselves, they are great allies in every fight.
These strange new Pikmin thrive in the dark, but can also turn into a ball of light so shiny, it can stun enemies!
As you progress through your adventure, you’ll discover useful raw materials that can be used to construct bridges, craft helpful gear and more.
Be on the lookout for sparkly things too! These treasures contain Sparklium – a valuable energy source. Use it to power up your spaceship and expand your planetary search for stranded travellers.
Puzzling challenges, strange creatures and powerful bosses await you in caves scattered across the planet. Time flows differently in these dark, dank depths, so descend and explore at your own pace, but be wary – the Onion can’t join you underground.
Fortunately, in certain caves, you’ll discover a variety of wild Pikmin who are happy to help. Traverse the treacherous caverns, grab treasure, and be on the lookout for stranded explorers. There are multiple levels to many caves, so check every nook and cranny.
If things aren’t going your way, head back to the surface and try again another day!
