Reminiscent of a Pokemon and Stardew Valley-esque mashup, new farming adventure game Monster Harvest is set to release on both PC and Nintendo Switch this coming May 13th, followed by its release on Xbox One and PlayStation 4 on June 3rd, with physical editions bringing up the rear.
The physical editions on PlayStation 4 and Nintendo Switch are expected to drop on June 4th in Europe, and June 8th in the United States.
Synopsis: This pixelated farming simulator places players in the vibrant world of Planimal Point. As players develop their farming skills through customization, crafting and even cooking up some jams, they can even begin to mutate their own crops to create dedicated companions to embark into battles.
Some key features of Monster Harvest include:
Farm with mutants! Use magical slimes to mutate the crops you grow on your farm.
Collectible Planimal companions! Some slimes mutate your crops into Planimals!
Take your loyal companions into battle as you look to save Planimal Point from the Evil SlimeCo.
Three unique seasons: Dry, Wet, and Dark – Strange weather and seasons shift what you can grow.
Venture into the town of Planimal Point – Discover the people and creatures that live there, build relationships to gain discounts in stores.
Craft dozens of items for your farm and your house.
Throughout the world of Planimal Point, players will discover a variety of odd slimes which can mutate crops in unimaginable ways. In creating unique variable components, players will be able to create up to 72 different mutations. In the trailer, we see the slimes wandering about, along with some variations of these mutated crops that stand by the player’s side, no matter what troubles may come. These companions will take part in turn-based battles as the player explores dungeons in their attempt to take down the monstrous SlimeCo. The trailer does a great job of demonstrating this entire side of the gameplay, while also showcasing some of the more simple, true farming simulator aspects.
Monster Harvest will be available on PC and Nintendo Switch on May 13th, and on Xbox One and PlayStation on June 3rd.
