I am really interested to see Nintendo take another shot at these ideas, but I feel pretty cautious given that I didn't really like the way Pikmin 3 softened the series.You might be surprised. I find that Pikmin 4 "softens" the difficulty even more, in some ways, with most enemy attacks not one-hit killing your Pikmin anymore. On the other hand, the challenge is most definitely there! Getting platinums on all the Dandori challenges is more challenging (and satisfying) than anything in Pikmin 2 IMO. But it's more about perfecting time management and less about the danger of all most of your Pikmin being wiped out by one attack. So it's both easier and harder than Pikmin 2 at the same time, depending on what you want to get out of it. But it does take quite a while to ramp up.It is hard for me to imagine an even easier Pikmin after Pikmin 3, but I suppose you could do it. While some attacks in Pikmin 3 are one-hits, others are not as long as you can call your Pikmin back in time, and enemies are more likely to scatter your Pikmin and give you time to pick them up than they are to throw them off their back and quickly try to eat them. The time management aspect was also definitely present in Pikmin 3's side challenges, but as I say in the essay, I wish I could have seen it in the main campaign.
