Pikmin 4: Pandemic is a sequel to Pikmin 3 and a launch title for the Nintendo UltraCube.


The meteor crashing into PNF-404 possessed something terrifying: a disease. Known as the Pikmin Plague, this disease ravaged the Pikmin people, killing many of them.

One day, Olimar's son, Sagittarius, came to PNF-404 alongside Olimar, Louie, and their friend from Koppal: Alph. Upon arriving, they noticed all the dead Pikmin, and decided to help find a cure for the disease.


The gameplay is the same as any other Pikmin title, with up to four players going around and commanding Pikmin to fight things and gather items. However, with the Pikmin Plague devastating the Pikmin people, some regions of the planet are plagued and cannot be entered by Pikmin. Instead, you will have to use the new Hypnosis Pikmin to take control of Bulborbs and other native creatures, since the plague only affects Pikmin.
