From the Pikmin 4 trailer in February 2023 we can see a new astronaut from Pikmin 3, who looks to be following on from Pikmin 3. We also get to see a new dog which you can use to get around the map easier.

The first gameplay for Pikmin 4 shows a very familiar style of gameplay. However, the aforementioned dog will help you get around and we can also see our astronaut move between levels on the ground, able to walk on walls.
