What has caused the delay in Pikmin 4 release?
With the caused rumours, the reasons for this delay have also been speculated by several Pikmin lovers.
It can probably be due to the Switch lineup projects, like Super Mario Odyssey, Metroid, and The Legend of Zelda, scheduled to release in May 2023. Another possible reason can be that the Nintendo developers and launchers aren’t releasing any news about Pikmin 4 to ensure the game is up to the mark before they make any promises.
