We’re just a few days away from the highly anticipated release of Pikmin 4, and Nintendo has finally lifted the review embargo. The big question on everyone’s mind is: does this fourth installment live up to the tremendous hype?

Like the three wonderfully weird mainline games before it, Pikmin 4 has once again captured my heart with its charming creatures that fearlessly follow commands regardless of their own well-being.

Pikmin 4 is a sumptuous strategy adventure that serves up tons of fun for returning fans of the franchise whilst also adding lots to entice new players into giving it a try.

That story, like most of Pikmin 4, is gentle and unobtrusive. It’s all just very agreeable and sweet, and there’s a certain gratification that comes from directing your little army of plant-people to gather treasures like fruits and Game Boy Advance cartridges.

Thankfully, it appears that Pikmin 4 does indeed deliver on the quality we’ve come to expect from the franchise. Critics specifically seem to love the inclusion of the adorable dog-like creature, Otachi who carries you and your Pikmin around the world.

The like me! They really like me!
