This week on the Pure Nintendo Podcast, Jemma, Kirk, Justin and Katey talk about their time with Pikmin 4 so far.

Last week was all about Mario Kart 8 Deluxe. This week begins with a look at the Famicom, which celebrated its 40th anniversary last week. We talk about some NES memories, including Konami’s Jackal – is it time for a revamp of this classic?

We spend a lot of time discussing Pikmin 4. Apart from the recent demo, we’re still fresh to this latest entry in the plant-based series, and Kirk and Jemma talk about the things they like and don’t like so far. It’s actually a terrific game (but why isn’t there a proper co-op mode?!).

We also give an update on our time in Hyrule, with Katey getting super close to finishing. And Jemma finally found a temple! Has she finished, though? You’ll have to listen to find out. We also talk about best fuses and gloom monsters, including Phantom Ganon. Yikes!

Apart from Pikmin 4, we’re playing plenty of other games this week, including a platformer called Garlic, a shooter called ProtoCorgi, and even the newly released app Pokémon Sleep.
