Pikmin Bloom was just updated with new features to enhance your daily walks.
First off, the new update includes new Flower Planting Weekly Challenges. Other types of challenges are going to get added later in future updates as well.
“This new Weekly Challenge lets you team up with friends and work together towards a shared goal of planting flowers. You can choose to participate in a flower planting challenge, a step challenge, or both at the same time,” Nintendo says.
In addition to the new Flower Planting Weekly Challenges that you complete alone, you can now add friends with a new invite feature in Pikmin Bloom. So you can stay connected with friends in the game.
