HARVESTELLA | Announcement Trailer Screenshot

During today’s Nintendo Direct, it was announced that SQUARE ENIX has an upcoming life simulation RPG, HARVESTELLA, which will be launching on Nintendo Switch. In SQUARE ENIX’s press release, they state that it’s headed to PC via Steam as well. However, there will be a physical edition of the game available for Nintendo Switch. The game is scheduled to launch this upcoming November 4th, 2022. SQUARE ENIX also mentions that the game features concept art from Isamu Kamikokuryo and music by Go Shiina. Feel free to check out the trailer down below and read a little bit about the game.

HARVESTELLA is set in a vibrant and colourful world where four giant crystals called “Seaslight” create a stable change between the four seasons. The adventure begins as abnormalities in the Seaslight begin to appear, creating the “Quietus,” a season of death that takes place between the naturally occurring four seasons. During the Quietus the crops wither and people cannot venture outside, and troublingly, these seasons are mysteriously growing longer with each year.

In this life simulation RPG, players will grow and tend to crops, use ingredients to cook and craft items, and venture into the overworld, which vibrantly changes based on the season, to visit different towns, interact with townsfolk, go fishing and more. Players can select from various Jobs, such as Fighter, Shadow Walker, and Mage, and venture into dungeons with their party to discover the origins of the world as well as the truth behind the calamity along the way.
