Well, that was an awesome surprise. As it often the case, Nintendo decided to surprise launch some software following its most recent Nintendo Direct broadcast. In this case, it was HD versions of Pikmin 1 and Pikmin 2. The two games are available right now via the Nintendo Switch eShop. You can see how both look in glorious high definition in this trailer:

Here’s what Nintendo says about the pair of rereleases:

HD versions of the first two Pikmin games, originally released on the Nintendo GameCube system, will launch in Nintendo eShop and in the My Nintendo Store on later today. The games will be available individually or in a digital bundle that contains both games at a discounted price. A physical version that includes both games will also be available on Sept. 22. With the inclusion of these two games on Nintendo Switch, all four main games in the Pikmin series – Pikmin 1Pikmin 2Pikmin 3 and, as of July 21, Pikmin 4 – will be playable on one system.

It’s notable how the entire series will be available on Switch once Pikmin 4 launches in July. Switch has become a real hub for so many games both new and old that it can boggle the mind to think about. If you’d like to have these games in physical form, you’ll have to wait until September 22 to get your hands on a cartridge and box. Will you be playing these HD remasters? Tell us your thoughts on Pikmin 1 and Pikmin 2 HD down in the comments!
