A lot has happened since the release of Harvest Moon, the first great life and farming simulator that I remember. Since then, we have seen some very good titles, but not high profile, get into competition with it: Rune Factory, Story of Seasons and the like were in a pitched battle to try to give theirs to the genre. But, in the end, the podium went to an indie: Stardew Valley.
Since then, there seems to be outshone all his fellows, who continue to add their personal touch to life simulators. For its part, Square Enix, the parents of Final Fantasy, have decided that it is time to get into this fight. With that in mind, he has announced Harvestellahis new game that will also come to PC.
Of course, the Japanese studio is not satisfied with copying the formula of the title of ConcernedApe, but rather proposes a title that has the essence of its video games. Apart from having your own farm and being able to take care of it, you will also be able to cook and make all kinds of recipes for prepare for your battles. And it is that you are not only going to be a farmer, but you are going to have to defend your work.
With an action RPG combat, Harvestella seeks to bring its formula closer to that of Rune Factory, a game that balanced its social and life simulation component with having to defeat powerful enemies. being able choose different classes For our character, this part of the game has a lot of weight in his development.
Another central point of the title will be the seasons; that they will not only bring changes to the crops, but that they have a great importance within the story; and the multiple cities to which we can go to meet all its inhabitants. It appears that Square Enix is looking to create a title in the biggest genre to date.
Although the title was announced yesterday during the Nintendo Direct Mini, we know that it will arrive on PC next November 4th. Leaving aside, again, its deal with Epic Games, the title will arrive on Steam on the day of its premiere translated, but not dubbed, into Spanish.
