This week on the Pure Nintendo Podcast, Kirk and Jemma give their initial impressions of Pikmin 4 based on the recently released demo. Are we excited about the imminent release of the full game?

We’ve both been spending some time with the Pikmin 4 demo, which debuted just last week. The demo is pretty meaty, with quite a few hours of gameplay. In it, we’re introduced to the new Ice Pikmin, as welll Oatchi the dog, all while using our custom-made astronaut to rescue other stranded travellors. It’s a great time and we’re very much looking forward to the full game’s release later this month.

Kirk also gives a comprehensive update on the mysterious JRPG we mentioned a few weeks ago. With the embargo now lifted, we can reveal the title, which is Legend of Heroes: Trails into Reverie. Kirk gives us a neat wrap up of the series and this latest entry.

We also discuss a couple of interesting titles coming out later this year that are sure to be popular with a younger audience. Firstly, there’s The Grinch: Christmas Adventures, which presents our favorite villain-cum-hero on a platformer quest to steal Christmas.

Then there’s Baby Shark: Sing and Swim Party. It was only a matter of time before the uber-popular Baby Shark made its way to the Switch, and now we know this puzzle game is heading ourway later this year. Jemma even has a fun Baby Shark story to go with this announcement!
