Pikémin Go Pikmin.original

Now where the heck do we put this topic? No Anyway, early days yet, but Niantic are doing a Pikmin app. and I'm intrigued.  I didn't get in with Pokémon Go because it seemed like it'd be a simplified version of something I'd spent a lot of time on already, but Pikmin popping up in the real world?  That I'm here for.  Also of note is that this is apparently going to be one of a series of apps.

Anybody going to pre-register?  (DIGRESSION ALERT: 'Pre-register'?  If you're signing up to something, isn't that just... 'registering'? Eh? ) Anyone got any other Nintendo series they'd like to see 'come to life'?

It's a shame that this topic hasn't had any responses these last three days, as I think there's a lot of interest in Pikmin round here, and there's at least three of us who still play Pokemon Go regularly too. Still, this announcement gave us practically hee-haw in the way of info. There's not really much to say at the moment, other than that I'm interested to see where it goes.

I've no idea what the plan is for this but I'm very much up for it, I like how Niantic have made mobile gaming enjoyable whilst also being beneficial for me and I love the potential for this using AR. I don't particularly use AR much in Pokémon Go but Lyla has started to enjoy it and I can see little Pikmin running around amusing her no end.

My phone struggles a bit with Pokemon Go because it's a bit shite, which is the main reason I gave up on it, so I suspect this might be the case for Pikmin Go as well. But I'll give it a go to see if I'm proven wrong!

It's the AR aspect that I'm really keen on with this. All they'd need is for some decent vegetation and soil detection to make it pretty feasible.

But yep, not much to go on so far.

I love Pikmin! But . . .

Yeah. That.

It's also worth noting that the announcement was that Niantic Tokyo is gonna be doing a whole series of Nintendo AR spin-offs. I'm up for shadow-boxing Little Mac in the street or getting kirby to swallow my colleagues at work and steal their abilities.

We do now have a bit more info.!

Quote :
...the app provides players with several Pikmin Seedlings to begin with. These Seedings can grow and eventually be plucked to reveal a fully grown Pikmin once the player has generated enough 'Step Energy' through walking.

All the usual suspects are present – you'll be able to grow Red, Blue Yellow, Rock, Winged, Purple, and White Pikmin – but 'Decor Pikmin', a new type of Pikmin that wear attire associated with the place you found them, are also included.

Aside from walking to grow and pluck Pikmin (which can be individually named by the player), one of the app's other main features is 'Expeditions'. Here, players can choose an Expedition to tackle, then choose the Pikmin they want to adventure with, before setting off to earn items. Sometimes, your Pikmin will pick up a Postcard – a digital image of Pikmin out and about on their adventure which uses real-world photos shared by Pokémon GO and Ingress players.

Sounds a lot more placid than Pokémon Go.

But yep, this is what I thought might be more interesting to talk about. I want a Mario game where you can gather power-ups from the environment, then come home and play a Kaizo-like that takes loads of them to blast through.

Oh boy, naming Pikmin? It sounds a bit Little King's Story - we might have funerals for them if they cark it now.
I do love Pikmin, but right now I don't love going outside and stopping in places everyone else stops at.
