  • Guide pint-sized creatures in an endearing expedition!

    Meet Pikmin: small, plantlike creatures with distinct abilities that you can grow, pluck, guide, and overpower enemies with! Use your Pikmin’s miniature might (and a bit of strategy) to explore this mysterious planet in search of your crew—and treasure.

    Three stages of Pikmin stand side by side, each with something growing from the stem on their heads: a budding Blue Pikmin, a flowering Yellow Pikmin, and a leafy Red Pikmin.

    Lead your loyal and curious squad

    To succeed, you’ll have to balance caring for the Pikmin with leading them into dangerous situations. Do your best out there!

    Two Red Pikmin, a Yellow Pikmin, a Blue Pikmin, and a Winged Pikmin move in a line.The Red Pikmin towards the back of the line has tripped forward onto their face.


    Pikmin grow from pellets and wildlife that you can bring to your ship. Pluck them from the ground to have them join you. Go team!


    Lead your squad through vast explorable areas to find treasures, discover new paths, and battle enemies of all sizes. You can also direct the Pikmin to collect and carry resources that are helpful for your mission. Up to three Pikmin types can be with you in the field at a time—the rest will hang back until you need them.


    When their task is done, the Pikmin will wait in place for you. Get close and blow your whistle to summon them to your side! This handy action can also help you protect the Pikmin from danger, do a headcount, or simply bring them with you to your next task.

    Meet the Pikmin

    A mysterious mix of plant and animal, these creatures are loyal, clever, and ready to follow your lead. Be sure to call forward the right ones for the job!

    The Rescue Corps needs you!

    Customize your own explorer and lead the charge each day to find your crew and fix the Rescue Corps ship, the S.S. Shepherd.

    • Track down your crew—and others

      Find and rescue your Rescue Corps crew and other castaways who find themselves in a bind.

    • Explore caves

      Strategize your way through multiple floors of puzzles and critters. Time seems to work differently when you’re exploring caves, so there’s no need to rush.

    • Collect resources

      Treasures are a great source of Sparklium, the mysterious element that powers the S.S. Shepherd. You can also collect raw materials that are handy for construction in the field, or build new equipment to make exploring more manageable!

    • Rescue Command Post

      Take your time to prepare for the day’s excursion! You can chat with Rescue Corps members and castaways, accept side missions, and build new equipment to assist you on your expedition. You can also choose to go on Night Expeditions from here.

    Who’s a good Oatchi? Oh, yes you are!

    Resident good boy and dependable partner Oatchi can help get the job done throughout your adventure. You can even train this Rescue Pup to become more helpful!

    With the Pikmin and a powerful pup at your side, no challenge is too big!

    Tricks of the trade

    Every in-game day brings different adventures, but there’s only so much you can do before you must return to the safety of your ship at night. Remember: If you can’t get everything done that you wanted, there’s always tomorrow.

    • Rewind and retry

      Something go sideways? No worries! Give yourself a do-over with the new Rewind Time feature and try a different approach.

    • Bring your ship to you

      There are multiple landing spots for your personal ship, the S.S. Beagle, in each of the expansive areas you can explore. Once you find a spot, you can freely land there. Helpful for cutting down time going to and from your ship!

    • Stay safe at night

      When alone, Pikmin are easy prey at night. Keep them safe by returning them to your ship before it gets dark. If you can’t make it back in time, simply whistle the Pikmin in the field to your side—if they’re with you, they’re protected!

    A flowering Ice Pikmin, a flowering White Pikmin, and a budding Rock Pikmin walk in a line.

    Dandori Challenges

    “Dandori” is a practice centered around planning things out in advance and working efficiently. (You can even put good dandori to work for you in your daily life!)

    In your expedition, you’ll come across Dandori Battles and Challenges. Use your time wisely and efficiently to collect the most items before time runs out!

    Bring a friend

    Two players on the same system* can work together or battle it out.

    Dandori Battle

    Take on—or team up with—a second player to collect the most items before time runs out. Who will reign supreme?

    Co-Op Mode
