Chinese developer ACE Entertainment has fully revealed Tales of Seikyu, a new Asian-fantasy and folklore farming / life sim game.
The new fantasy farming game has players take over a run down inn set in a forgotten realm where mythical beasts dwell.
A release for Tales of Seikyu is planned across Windows PC (via Steam) with consoles ports later for Switch, Xbox, and PlayStation.
Here’s a rundown on the game, plus its reveal trailer:
“Tales of Seikyu” is an East Asian-inspired fantasy-style farming simulation adventure game set in the lost land of Seikyu, inhabited by various legendary creatures from around the world.
The town residents, including the always tipsy and exquisite bar owner Shuten-dōji, the sharp-tongued and rebellious folklorist Yoji who is obsessed with the study of ancient gods, and the former mafia boss Otter Andolini who now only cares about his dock, each lead their own lives.
Despite the seemingly peaceful atmosphere, the town is constantly threatened by the power of the Old Gods. As an outsider, can you successfully manage the old inn entrusted to you by the Inari God?
- Retire to the countryside and run a cozy inn in the world of legendary creatures – Transform the old, dilapidated house entrusted to you by the Inari God into a warm hotel where all creatures feel at home. Manage your business, change furniture, expand guest rooms, and ensure that every resident has a satisfactory experience. You can also study cooking in the hotel cafeteria to cater to the diverse needs of your guests.
- Transform freely and explore temples to acquire ability masks – Venture into the divine realm, full of puzzles, and obtain ability masks. Transform into a Wild Boar to charge forward and smash obstacles; become a Dryad and use vines to climb steep cliffs with ease; or turn into a Slime to swim and dive underwater in search of treasure. Use these different abilities to solve a wide array of puzzles creatively.
- Open your heart and forge bonds with the villagers – Over 30 unique characters are waiting for you to connect with them, and there’s always one that suits you! Each character has a unique storyline that integrates into the world of Seikyu and intersects with the village. Knock on their hearts, share their joys and sorrows, and as emotions heat up, a bond beyond friendship might eventually develop.
- Team up with friends to uncover the secrets of the world – Invite friends to join you in the mysterious Seikyu and discover the secrets of this world together. Challenge the divine realm as a team to collect lost treasures, demonstrate the power of friendship to your foes, or collaborate on the farm, as many hands make light work. Alternatively, simply relax in a corner of the town with nothing to do and enjoy the sea breeze and sunshine.
