In the latest Nintendo Direct Mini, Square Enix announced a brand new life simulation RPG. It’s called Harvestella and launches on November 4th worldwide for Nintendo Switch and PC via Steam. Check out its announcement trailer below.
The story sees the player awakening during the Quietus. This is a period of calamity that occurs when the seasons change. For some strange reason, its duration is increasing each year. As for the player, they’ll explore the world to gather the Seaslight, visiting towns like the cherry blossom-filled Nemea Town to the beautiful Lethe Village and its four seasons.
Along with growing vegetables and crops to sell for money or use as crafting material, one can prepare recipes for increasing stats. There are also different animals to take care of, Companions to bond with, and real-time combat with various Jobs like Fighter, Mage, and Shadow Walker.
Harvestella looks like a cross between Bravely Default’s aesthetic and Job system with Harvest Moon’s life sim elements. Stay tuned for more details in the coming months.
