Pikmin 4 sales in Japan during the first week of its release were strong for the franchise. The game sold 400,000 copies making it the best performance for the series thus far. Pikmin 4 actually doubled the first week sales of Pikmin 3 Deluxe which was the last released title in the franchise.

Thanks to Nintendo Everything here are the first week sales for all Pikmin games.

Pikmin 1 – 101,299

Pikmin 2 – 161,930

Pikmin 3 – 102,188

Pikmin 3 Deluxe – 171,349

Pikmin 4 – 401,853

These sales are physical only and not including digital sales. Pikmin 4 set a new record for Pikmin as a whole after waiting years for this game to release. Overall though, Pikmin 3 Deluxe is the best-selling entry in the franchise at 2.23 million which was as of December 2021. Pikmin 4 should without question be the top selling Pikmin game as time goes by.

Pikmin 4 is available now on the Nintendo Switch for $59.99 USD on the Nintendo eShop. The game also led physical sales in its initial week in the U.K.
