The adorably quirky strategy puzzler Pikmin 4 has finally arrived on the Nintendo Switch. Ten years in the making, Pikmin 4 sees the return of the titular, tiny, leaf-headed plantfolk.

It’s your job to rescue them in their hundreds, to help you solve puzzles, lift heavy objects, locate stranded friends and fight off predators.

The biggest addition this time around is the game’s new subterranean area, as well as night-time expeditions that introduce a new type of bioluminescent Pikmin.

Behind the cute, colourful graphics and cartoonish characters, Pikmin 4 is a complex and challenging strategy game for new players as well as fans of the 20-year-old series. If you’ve yet to pick up the game (released on 21 July), some UK retailers already have Pikmin 4 deals or are bundling the long-awaited sequel with bonus gifts such as limited edition key rings and posters.

We’ve rounded up the best Pikmin 4 deals and bonuses and where to buy them. Keep reading to find out more.

The best ‘Pikmin 4’ deals in the UK

‘Pikmin 4’ with free poster: Was £54.99, now £42.85, Shopto.net

(Nintendo)

If you buy Pikmin 4 from independent retailer ShopTo, you’ll not only get £7 off the game itself, you’ll also get a free promotional poster worth £5. The only snag is it’s on back order, so you’ll have to wait until it comes back in stock – and we don’t know how long that could take.

If you don’t want to wait, the free poster bundle is also available from Amazon (£49.99, Amazon.co.uk). You don’t get the £7 discount at Amazon, but Prime members can enjoy free next-day delivery.

If you want to buy the game at a discount, but you don’t want to wait for the game to restock at ShopTo, Hit is currently selling the game for the exact same price with the same £7 discount. You don’t get the fancy poster to pin up on your wall, but it’s in stock and there’s free UK delivery.

‘Pikmin 4’ with free key ring: £49.99, Game.co.uk

(Nintendo)

This is our favourite of the free gifts: a key ring of a blue Pikmin sitting on a die. We can’t vouch for how long that little guy will survive inside a pocket before his tiny stem snaps off, but it’s cute all the same. Buy Pikmin 4 from Game and it’s all yours for £49.99.
