Pikmin Bloom's first Community Day set for November 13

Pikmin Bloom's upcoming Community Day event will offer players a 10,000-step challenge and several limited-time bonuses.


Nintendo and Niantic’s latest mobile venture, Pikmin Bloom, has proven to be another activity-filled adventure as we wander about gathering our Pikmin and the rewards the little leafy friends can bring us. It hasn’t been that long since Pikmin Bloom launched, but the devs are also prepping the game’s first special event as well. Coming up next weekend, players will be able to take part in a Pikmin Bloom Community Day event which offers bonus rates on various activities and rewards, as well as a 10,000-step challenge.

Nintendo and Niantic unveiled the first Pikmin Bloom Community Day event on the game’s Twitter and in a website announcement. Coming on November 13, 2021 and running from 9:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m. in whatever your local time zone is, this Pikmin Bloom Community Day will offer several reasons to jump in and get the most out of the game. Several bonus rates and rewards will be in play during the Community Day time frame, and what’s more, players that engage in at least 10,000 steps with the game will earn themselves a special “Community Day Participant” badge. As the event page warns, just be aware of your health constraints and surroundings.

The first Pikmin Bloom Community Day event on November 13 will feature a special 10k-step challenge and reward for those who complete it.

“We plan to continue holding events for our players to come together and fill the world with flowers going forward, so please make sure to follow us on your social media of choice to stay up to date,” the announcement reads.
