Niantic is now rolling out Pikmin Bloom worldwide, starting with Singapore and Australia where it’s already live. Similar to Pokémon Go, you’ll have to go out and interact with the real world enjoy the game. It’s really more of a fun and colorful companion for daily walks or hikes, though, since it doesn’t have battles and doesn’t have the incentive of catching rare monsters like Pokémon Go does.

In Pikmin Bloom, you’ll find seedlings when you walk that you can pick up and grow into plant-like creatures that’ll follow you around. The more you walk, the more Pikmin you can pluck and the more Pikmin will follow you around. Onscreen, you’re depicted as a Mii avatar, with a bunch of creatures walking behind you and making more flowers bloom along your path. You’ll also be able to collect items on your walks, including clothes Pikmin can wear and fruit you can feed your creatures to make flowers bloom on their heads.

Niantic CEO John Hanke said in the game’s video announcement that the flowers the Pikmin make can be viewed by other players, so you can create shared gardens with your neighbors. Pikmin Bloom is now live for Android and iOS in Singapore and Australia, and it will be arriving in more countries and regions “shortly.”
