You will be able to obtain these items from the online version of the Taito crane games. Each hat sits fairly high on the head, so it shouldn’t impede your field of vision. Each Pikmin hat is in a different stage of development. The yellow PIkmin has a leaf at the end of the antenna protruding from its head. Meanwhile, the red one has a flower and the blue one has a bud. These Pikmin hats are fairly accurate to the designs that players are familiar with. The yellow Pikmin hat is the only one with visible ears, much like the yellow Pikmins in game.

These Pikmin hats are not the only additions to Taito crane games. On the same day, Taito announced that plushes reimagining the Sanrio mascots as chuuni delinquents will be available as prizes. Those who are unable to play these crane games due to geographical reasons will likely be able to purchase them individually from proxy sites or services. However, these customers may have to fork over a premium compared to trying to get them “legitimately” through the crane game.

Pikmin 3, the latest mainline entry, is readily available on the Nintendo Switch.
