The Pikmin bath bomb looks kind of like a Pikmin that is still in the ground because the leaf is protruding out of it. Once the outside layer dissolves in the water, a figure will pop out. In total, there are five different kinds of Pikmin figures that you can collect. You’ll be able to get either a red, blue, yellow, purple, or white Pikmin. As for the bath bomb itself, it gives off a fruity scent.

Pikmin first came out in 2001, and the latest mainline title, Pikmin 4, will come out on July 21, 2023. The game is a platformer in which the player character issues commands to little creatures called Pikmins. Each color has a different affinity and strength, such as Red Pikmin having high attack power and fire resistance. Due to their simple and cute designs, Nintendo and other companies have often released merchandise with Pikmin on them in the past.

The Pikmin bath bombs will start appearing for purchase from October 2023. Pikmin 4 is in development and will come out on the Nintendo Switch on July 21, 2023.
