What about Captain Olimar
Will he be in Pikmin 4? – The preceding unsigned comment was added by CaptianOlimar321 • (talk) • (contribs)
- At this point, we do not know for sure whether Captain Olimar will appear in Pikmin 4. However, on Pikipedia, it's not our job to speculate and theorize on what might be in Pikmin 4, it's our job to document what has been officially confirmed. — Soprano(talk) 20:54, December 8, 2022 (EST)
Underground areas like in Pikmin 2 appear to be in the game, namely one appearing at 2:02 in the newest trailer and an air vent shortly after that appears to be a replacement for geysers. The 'disco long legs' and Empress Bulblax may be fought as bosses in these - the arachnorb in particular has a bit of proof of this, because the camera turns to show the ship pod hovering nearby, meaning this is an underground arena sublevel similar to in Pikmin 2. It may be worth noting the return of dungeons in the article. I can't tell if the dungeons are randomly generated but during the Bulblax fight, the surrounding area certainly resembles the 'snap together' sort of style the 2 dungeons had, but with more ways to fit them together like that diagonal wall. There also appears to be a wall made of ice in the background - maybe extreme cold becomes a hazard only ice pikmin can brave?
It's also interesting to note that night exploration may be possible. The red-eye bulborb is obvious, but the area is also notably littered with glowing konpeito. Obviously its unclear if this is actually part of the main game or, say, a special challenge mode, but the candy wasn't present during the daytime. On a more personal note, I am so excited. The return of treasures and dungeons are everything I could have dreamed of!!! I hope there's at least enough to match the amount in 2, at minimum. One of my biggest gripes with Pikmin 3 (despite it being a stellar game in its own right) is the lack of dungeons and having a pretty bare-bones selection of collectibles. The fruits looked great, but there weren't very many of them and many were duplicates.
