Gameplay

Structure

Four captains control groups of up to 150 Pikmin at a time. Pikmin can now build structures like huts, as well as returning puzzle solving and combat challenges. The biggest addition to this game is the ability to stay on the planet's surface at night, which is where existing enemies become tougher, some enemies wake up, and new enemies come out of hiding. Another big change to the formula is an open world structure, you can now visit any area at any time.
