Toybox Inc. are porting Harvest Moon creator Yasuhiro Wada’s latest game Birthdays the Beginning to the Nintendo Switch.

The evolution-focused sandbox game will launch for the hybrid console on March 29th of this year, in Japan (via Japanese game schedule wiki @Renka_schedule).

Fans can expect the Switch port to have some big improvements from its PC and PlayStation 4 version.

Navigation is streamlined to make it easier to discern between distinguishing areas and the requirements for creatures to be born. The overall speed of the game has been smoothed out. There will also be new creatures introduced.

Birthdays the Beginning is now available for PC and PlayStation 4.
