Pikmin Bloom, Niantic and Nintendo’s latest walking-based game, is available now in Australia and Singapore

Niantic has announced that Pikmin Bloom – formerly known simply as the Pikmin app – is now available for iOS and Android in Australia and Singapore. The joint venture between Niantic and Nintendo will then release in other regions soon.

Pikmin Bloom aims to add a little intrigue to your daily walks or any journey you make on foot by allowing you to bring your Pikmin squad along for the ride. But first, you will need to grow them, which is achieved by planting seedlings and walking a certain distance. So essentially, the more you walk, the more Pikmin you will have. They can then be sent out on expeditions to retrieve different items for you.
