VideoGamesChronical got an exclusive look at the new Pikmin App, and here’s what they found!
After announcing a new partnership last week, Nintendo and Niantic also announced that they will be releasing a new Pikmin App that is meant to make walking more fun. This will be the first in a new line of apps that will help users find more joy in their day to day activities. Well, VGC recently got their hands on a copy of the app, and went into great detail to show users just how fun and intuitive this app really is.
How it all works.
According to VGC, the game begins with you being given little Pikmin Seedlings. These seedlings require “Step Energy” to grow. Obviously, step energy is acquired by walking. Once they reach the required amount of energy, you may then “harvest” your new Pikmin friend.
As you walk around you will be able to discover lots of different Pikmin, as well as different items that you Pikmin may interact with or may help them grow. Currently, there are seven different breeds of Pikmin that you may grow.
- Red Pikmin
- Blue Pikmin
- Yellow Pikmin
- Purple Pikmin
- White Pikmin
- Rock Pikmin
- Winged Pikmin
There are much more details about the new app in the VGC article. I will certainly be trying this one for myself when the app finally releases.
