Cluffowl, Woolum, and Totokaku, oh my!
The new Nintendo Direct Mini: Partner Showcase continues to grace us with a slew of life-simulation games. If you always wanted to know what it would be like to farm in a world like Final Fantasy, you’re in luck! Square Enix just released a new trailer announcing HARVESTELLA, a beautiful fantasy world that may even be better than Rune Factory 5.
In HARVESTELLA, players will be able to tend to their crops, befriend the townsfolk, explore various cities and dungeons, cook to replenish HP and increase stats, and take care of animals. There are adorable fantasy creatures to love in this world. For example, those round red chicken-like birds are called Cluffowl. You can even pet and receive rewards from your chubby kitty with antlers, the Totokaku.
Not only are there all four seasons in this game, but a new mysterious one called the season of death, Quietus. During this period, crops wither and the dust of death prevents people from even walking outside. You’ll have to progress the story to unearth why this keeps happening for longer periods of time each year.
Available November 4th, 2022 on Switch and Steam
HARVESTELLA is available to pre-purchase on Steam here, and listed on the Nintendo eShop here. The launch date is set for November 4th, 2022. Therefore, players will not have to wait very long to get their hands on this game!
