No need to be scared!
Pikmin 4 just came out, so newcomers may have some questions. Important questions like “What’s up with those weird little guys?” and “Why are all the plants huge?” and “Do some of these creatures even have noses?” While Nintendo won’t get into that last one, they do want to cover some Pikmin basics.
Quick note: This article will be spilt into two parts. Part 1 gives you a bird’s-eye view of the game while Part 2 (coming soon) will cover specific game modes and stuff like that.
