This New Nintendo Game Is Basically A Cross Between The Sims And Animal Crossing
And it's adorable.
It’s being developed by Grezzo, the team who brought The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time 3D and Majora’s Mask 3D to the Nintendo 3DS.
“Taking the role of a plant-like Seedling, the player must team up with the Water Spirit Esna in order to build a new oasis in the desert – a place of safety and respite in a world threatened by the spread of the life-stealing Chaos,” says Nintendo. “By helping visitors who arrive at the oasis, the player can encourage them to take up residence and set up their own shops known as Bloom Booths. These will generate income and, over time, transform the oasis into a thriving hub of activity.”
You’ll also have to head out to the desert, find resources, solve puzzles, and slay enemies.
“The story has been designed to illustrate the importance of kindness and, at times, to touch the heart,” said creator, Koichi Ishii. “[It’s] all about working with your friends and supporting each other, so we didn’t want to create a hero who could do everything by themselves. Heroes will encounter all sort of situations in which it’s impossible to progress without help from other residents of the oasis.”
