Pikmin: Return to the Distant Planet

From Pikmin Fanon

This page has something to do with Pikmin: Return to the Distant Planet, a game made by Neocraftz1553.

Pikmin: Return to the Distant Planet is a game by Neocraftz1553 in which Olimar's son, Sagittarius, is on a vacation in space flying in his ship: the S.S. Dolphin 2.0. In a strange twist, history repeats itself and his ship is struck by a meteor, shattering his ship into 50 parts and sending them hurtling to the Distant Planet.


Olimar's Son, Sagittarius, is seen sailing through space. Suddenly a meteor strikes him out of outer space, sending him and his shattered ship hurtling towards the Distant Planet.

After the intro, a short cutscene plays (much like in Pikmin, but with the background tinted green) where Sagittarius states his name and where he is from. He then states that unfortunately for him, his Dolphin 2.0, a gift from his father, has shattered into 50 pieces. What's worse, his computer says the planet's oxygen levels are dangerously high, and that his life support systems can only function for 50 days before they cease to function. The player is then allowed to look around.

Gameplay and Mechanics[edit]

Pikmin: Return to the Distant Planet introduces and brings back many mechanics from the past three games including:

  • Using sprays
  • Bomb rocks
  • Hazards
  • Weather hazards

...and much more!


Days are much like they were in the other 3 games, but the sun will move realistically along with the timer, casting shadows and such as the day progresses. There will also be a random weather hazard present in a day (see percentage below). The hazards are as follows:

  • Sunny: Normal day.
  • Cloudy: Darker day. Will also increase percentage of rainy the next day in the same area by 20%.
  • Heatwave: The area's temperature will be 25°F hotter and most water sources (puddles, lakes, etc.) will evaporate.
  • Flash freeze: The area's temperature will be 20°F colder and all water sources will freeze.
  • Rainy: It will rain, making most water sources overflow and one area completely flooded, save for the landing site. It will decrease the next day's chance of rainy/lightning by 30% in the same area.
  • Lightning: Rainy, so most water sources will overflow. Lightning will also strike randomly around the area.
  • Twister: The area cannot be explored. Will look like a hurricane on the area selection map.

Gameplay stays much the same and is like the other three games, but is mostly like the first game in that you collect ship parts to repair your damaged ship. The only difference is that there are two maps, with 5 areas in the first and 4 areas in the second.

Multiplayer Pikmin: Return to the Distant Planet can be played in multiplayer, but only in Challenge mode and the Sprout Challenge mode, after they have been unlocked. The main game can only be played in multiplayer after it is completed at least once.
