Shepherd's Crossing

SUCCESS Corporation announced a western release for Shepherd’s Crossing, their farmlife sim remaster.

The new remaster is launching worldwide for Windows PC (via Steam) on April 27th and sometime this summer for Nintendo Switch and PlayStation 4.

The previously announced remaster is known as Hakoniwa Bokujou Hitsuji Mura in Japan.

Here’s a rundown on the game:

Life on a sandbox ranch begins again.

Players are entrusted with a single box garden (ranch), which they use to raise animals and crops. There is no money, and animals and crops are bartered. Although a main storyline exists, the ultimate goal is entirely up to the player.

Shepherd’s Crossing is such a different kind of boxyard ranch simulation that pursues the fun of increasing what you want and creating the landscape of your choice. Less than 20 years have passed since the original “Welcome to Sheep Village.

Now, Shepherd’s Crossing is back with a variety of new elements.

New Elements From the Original Version

  • Zoom Out the Ranch and Get Cute – The ranch can now be zoomed in and out in four levels. When zoomed out to the maximum, animals and items in the ranch are displayed in dot-by-dot equal size. Breed lots of animals and enjoy watching them move all over the place!
