Pikmin 4 Surpasses 2.6 Million Sales, Zooming Past Predecessor’s Milestone

Nintendo’s latest financial disclosures have painted a rosy picture for Pikmin 4, the newest installment in the beloved strategy series. With more than 2.61 million units sold since its recent release, it has quickly outperformed Pikmin 3 Deluxe, which took two years to reach 2.4 million sales after its launch on the Nintendo Switch.

Pikmin 4 has generated significant interest worldwide, particularly in the UK and Japan where it was the top-selling game in September. Despite the eight-year gap since Pikmin 3 and the slow news cycle, fans awaited the new adventure and quickly snapped it up upon release.

Enhancing the traditional charm of the series, Pikmin 4 not only maintains the core action-strategy mechanics fans adore but also introduces fresh elements to the mix. Among the newcomers are novel Pikmin types and a creature named Oatchi, adding layers to gameplay with its dual role as a mount and protector. Additionally, the game entices with Night Expeditions, a new feature where players face off against a surge of aggressive enemies under the cover of darkness, adding a twist to the series’ well-established day-night cycle.

Nintendo’s report here not only celebrates Pikmin 4’s achievements but also places a spotlight on the continuing allure of the Nintendo Switch platform, which has been a strong performer in the gaming market since its release.
