Recently, news regarding Pikmin 4 surfaced in the Game Explorer, the Greek retailer. What interests the fans is the release date of Pikmin 4, which is now with us, but it is the speculated release date. My Nintendo News was the first to spot the game listing on the website of Game Explorer. If you are looking forward to it, you are in for some happy news because the game is now available for pre-order.
Pikmin 4: Speculated Release Date
The apparent release date of Pikmin 4 is May 23, 2023. Another speculated release date for the game is July 21st. Nintendo has neither confirmed nor denied this release date. We will update this section as soon as a confirmed release date is available.
Previously, in September last month, Nintendo gave the game a release window in 2023 without a confirmed release date. According to rumors making rounds on the internet, the release date is ahead of the public announcement. The currently announced date might also need to be correctly reported. Nothing is confirmed yet.
How Long Has Pikmin 4 Been In Development?
The developers have worked to develop the game for about eight years. Wii U, its predecessor, was released in 2013. It is a long development time for a game, and hopefully, all the hard work will pay off.
Currently, all the news regarding Pikmin 4 is under wrap. The makers have neither revealed the story nor the gameplay. However, if the game releases in May 2023, we expect a gameplay trailer soon in the next month. So again, stay tuned because we will bring the teaser to you as soon as it is out. But, till then, you will have to wait.
Pikmin 4: Teaser
A teaser of Pikmin 4 was previously shared. However, it was very short of giving out any specific details of the game. However, the game will again follow Olimar and his leaf-headed friends.
Also, Miyamoto threw some light on Pikmin 4. He stated that Pikmin 4 would employ a new deployment mechanic. The gamers can play in a mode much closer to the ground through this mechanic. Even though the teaser did not reveal much, it surely built anticipation for the game.
What Are All Other Things Going At Nintendo?
This is the only news regarding Pikmin 4. Therefore, let us now have a quick look at what exactly is going on at Nintendo. Firstly, sources claim Nitnedo will not be present at E3 this year. The reason behind it is that this year, it has yet to have any significant release to show to the world. This news was shocking for many fans as Nintendo has been a substantial attendee of most E3 events. Also, its absence from the event this year indicates that the company is currently focusing on Direct online events.
The second most significant news is that it will finally increase its production during the next fiscal year. It is because it expects a spike in sales from its May release, which includes the highly-anticipated The Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom. Even though the console industry is having a hard time because of a shortage of global parts, Nintendo successfully topped the industry by selling the highest total console units last year in the United States. It was made possible with the entry of Splatoon and Pokemon.
There is another critical information for you! According to Nikkei, the Japanese publication, Nintendo is now in talks with other manufacturers to work on the successor of the Switch. However, no vital information is available about the same, but some news might surface in the middle of next year.
