Pikmin Bloom is the latest AR mobile release from Niantic that ties in with a prominent Nintendo franchise, following the enormous success of Pokémon GO. It's evidently designed to be a little more relaxed in its objectives and targets, as it's focused on making more Pikmin friends and bringing flowers to bloom as opposed to capturing a huge range of Pocket Monsters.

We went hands on with the app earlier this week (below) as it underwent a soft launch in a limited number of countries.

Its roll-out now seems to be picking up pace, with Nintendo confirming that it's available to download throughout the Americas.

It seems likely that the roll-out will progress fairly quickly, with Nintendo of Europe confirming it'll arrive in the region 'soon'.

Let us know if you're planning to check this out!
