Publisher Flyhigh Works and developer Skipmore announced slow life RPG Picontier is getting a Switch port this summer.
The laid back RPG is coming to Nintendo Switch on June 29th. Picontier has been available on Steam after its early access back in November 2020.
Here’s a rundown on the game, plus a new trailer:
“Picontier” is a story of mystery and fascinating events that occur on an island as the main character, who awakens from a long sleep on the magical island, resumes life from scratch and meets many intriguing islanders. It is a ‘slow life RPG’ that unravels and reveals surprising twists.
The hero awakens from a long sleep to find that the appearance of the island is quite different from their memory. Start your life in the town “Magmail” in the center of the island, making your way with help from the caring AI character “Aila”.
In your island life you can craft items and weapons; you can also fish in the sea and grow crops on the ranch. Use newly created items and weapons to interact with the inhabitants of the island, and as you get to know each other the conversations will change and you will receive crafting recipes.
Materials are required for crafting, and these are collected both in and out of town. The monsters that appear on the field change between day and night, so check recipes for what you want to make and find the right monsters for the job.
By advancing the main quest the story of the entire island will progress and evolve. You’ll learn about the mysterious substance “Piconium”, that exists only on this island, and the strange “black fog” that holds the key to the ‘incident’ – including the mysterious disappearance of Professor Jeda after our hero’s awakening. Experience a wondrous story on a mysterious island, where magical things happen!
