Okay fellow Stardewbut followers, here is one other one for you. Monster Harvest might be precisely what you assume it is going to be. You’re a farmer, however as an alternative of selecting parsnips you are selecting Pokemon, so the portmanteau in play right here is Planimals. Your creature associates will compete in turn-based battles that can assist you save the city from the native evil corp, in fact. Monster Harvest has simply introduced a launch date for this spring, so you possibly can formally begin harvesting and battling in May.
In Monster Harvest, you are naturally given your individual farm in Planimal Point the place you will develop each regular vegetation and Planimals. “Develop your individual farm, construct, and customise your individual home, craft your individual furnishings, make some scrumptious jams and mutate your crops to create loyal and fierce companions you possibly can take into battle,” builders Maple Powered Games say. With their assist, you are requested to save lots of the city from SlimeCo. You can catch all of that, and the turn-based Planimal battles, in the new trailer proper right here.
There look to be all types of Planimals to develop, however I’m in fact most in the one that appears like an odd, pink bear. A wierd, pink bear you can experience, even. Oh, and the one which’s positively legally distinct from a Chocobo.
The mutation half appears vital. Your Planimals are created by utilizing magical slimes on them to show them from common crops into companion creatures. “Depending on the season, the Slime or the crop you mutate, you’ll be capable of create as much as 72 totally different mutations,” Maple Powered say. Sounds to me like a little bit of experimentation is in order, which is nice enjoyable. Likely not moral, precisely, however enjoyable!
Aside from the questionable plant science, Monster Harvest appears to have a lot of acquainted Stardew-like options. You’ve bought a hotbar of instruments. There’s a small native city to discover and meet residents in. There’s a slime dungeon to discover. You can design your farm, together with a nifty-looking irrigation system. I do like an irrigation system.
Monster Harvest will launch on May thirteenth over on Steam. It’ll arrive on the Nintendo Switch on the similar day, with PS4 and Xbox variations coming in June.
