A spin-off for the ''[=3DS=]'' was also surprisingly announced on the [[http://www.nintendo.com/nintendo-direct/09-01-2016/#/video-1ndirect 9/1/16 Nintendo direct]], featuring Olimar and the Pikmin cast from ''3'' back in the lead roles on a [=2D=] action platforming adventure. The story involves Olimar in his new ship, the S.S. Dolphan 2 once again crash landing on a ''new'' planet that somehow also has Pikmin on it. Rather use to this by now, Olimar must use the various Pikmin colors to collect treasure in order to refuel his ship and blast off. This new title called ''[[ExcitedEpisodeTitle Hey! Pikmin]]'' will be compatable with ''Toys/{{Amiibo}}'', with its own specific Amiibo featuring the titled plant creatures releasing the same day it does.

A fourth installment was suddenly and surprisingly announced to be "very close to completion" on September 7th, 2015, by Shigeru Miyamoto himself. Although no word was said since because [[https://www.gamnesia.com/news/miyamoto-says-finishing-pikmin-4-hasnt-been-one-of-nintendos-priorities-lat it wasn't a high priority of Nintendo's]] because of the ''UsefulNotes/NintendoSwitch'' coming out soon around the time, some words from [[https://www.gamnesia.com/news/rumor-pikmin-4-is-a-reboot-that-launches-next-autumn-on-nintendo-switch a credible Twitter account]] has rumored that ''Pikmin 4'' will likely be a ContinuityReboot for the franchise, and planned to launch for the ''Switch'' in Autumn 2017.

* SequelReset: According to Olimar's expedition logs in ''Pikmin 3'', Hocotate Freight's latest venture left them in debt again. This is why Olimar and Louie are back on PNF-404 during the events of the game.

* EarlyInstallmentWeirdness: The first game has a more "lonely" atmosphere, especially given as how there is only one player character. Also, Pikmin turn a pale shade of their color when idle in the first game -- something not repeated in either following game for whatever reason.

Yellow Pikmin also had no affiliation with electricity, instead being used just to carry bomb rocks.

* LostWoods: The Awakening Wood in the second game and the Garden of Hope in the third game are large forest areas. In addition, the entire first game can be seen as taking palce in a forest setting.

* TheVeryDefinitelyFinalDungeon: The Final Trial in the first game. In the second game, the Wistful Wild is the Very Definitely Final Region, and the Dream Den is the VeryDefinitelyFinalDungeon. In ''Pikmin 3'', [[spoiler:the final area in the game is a ''huge'' termite mound (referred to as an oak stump in English, for some reason) of all things. Luckily, no actual termite-based enemies appear in it. The name of said area? [[NamesToRunAwayFromReallyFast Tower of the Sorrowful Beast...]] (Formidable Oak in English)]]

*** Having 100 Red Pikmin following you will make them hum the [[VideoGame/LuigisMansion Luigi's Mansion]] theme. This also happens if you are in a dungeon sublevel and have collected all the treasure on that sublevel.

* PalmtreePanic: The Perplexing Pool in the second game and the Tropical Wilds in the third, even though the second game is more of a large watering hole and the third is a beach-like area.

The first two games have been ported to Wii as well, with enhanced Wii-mote controls. Olimar is also a playable character in the ''VideoGame/SuperSmashBros'' series beginning with ''Brawl'', with Alph added as an alternate costume in ''WiiU and 3DS''. The series as a whole is represented in ''VideoGame/NintendoLand'' with its own subgame, ''Pikmin Adventure'', and is also referenced a few times here and there, like in ''VideoGame/WarioWare''. It even appears as animations used to represent the transferring of your data to the 3DS and Wii U!

* NiceDayDeadlyNight: The surface of PNF-404 can be dangerous during the day, but at night it's so dangerous that the Captains and Pikmin enter low orbit to avoid the predators that become active at that time. Any Pikmin left behind who aren't in the ground are devoured by the native wildlife.
