Revisit the first two Pikmin games on the Nintendo Switch system! Reintroduce yourself to the plantlike Pikmin and strategic gameplay that this charming series is rooted in. From finding a way home to collecting treasure, Olimar (plus Louie in the Pikmin 2 game) must partner with a parade of Pikmin to survive the harshest of conditions. Both games support optional motion controls for more options when guiding your floral friends. Find your way home in the original Pikmin plucking adventure. Meet Captain Olimar and a capable cast of red, blue, and yellow Pikmin on a dire mission across a larger-than-life planet. Olimar must guide his loveably-leafy companions through obstacles, in battle, and when collecting his missing ship parts.
Your oxygen will only last 30 days, but the Pikmin provide a glimmer of hope that you may make it home. Meet even more Pikmin (and his colleague, Louie) on a treasure-hunting expedition. Swap between Olimar and Louie to divide and conquer in Pikmin 2. Tasked with helping pay off their employer’s debt, the pint-sized pair teams up with Pikmin (including purple and white Pikmin) to collect treasure on, you guessed it, a strange planet. Time ticks away on the surface, but cave systems let you take your time to let your strategy blossom.
