Pikmin 1 & 2 get a surprise Switch eShop release later today

Pikmin 4 not enough Pikmin for you? Well then it’s your lucky day! Nintendo has announced Pikmin 1 & 2 are coming to Switch, with both titles getting a surprise release on eShop today.

The first Pikmin introduced the world to Captain Olimar and his titular half-plant, half-animal pals back on GameCube in 2001. A sequel followed in 2004, expanding on the original’s real-time strategy style puzzling with new Pikmin, cave exploration, and more.
