News game Animal Crossing’s PC competitor is finally coming to PS4, Xbox One, and even Nintendo Switch
Animal Crossing reigns supreme over cute life simulators. But an upcoming release may succeed in changing the situation.
The end of the monopoly for the Nintendo license?
2020 is the first time we hear about Hokko Life. His announcement came shortly after another game similar to a Nintendo license: the famous Temtem. Just like the latter, Hokko Life did not hide its inspirations. Whether at the level of the concept, the activities or the artistic direction, no doubt possible: it was Animal Crossing all spat. Its creator, Robert Tatnell, described it as a “simulation of community focused on creativity”. In addition to the house creation side, we were then promised many activities such as fishing or insect hunting, not to mention socializing with the other inhabitants.
Quickly, Team 17 (Overcooked) saw the title’s potential and decided to join forces with the small Swedish studio. Well wrapped up, the team in charge of Hokko Life can therefore work in complete serenity. After a year, the game is finally coming to early access. But unlike Temtem that we mentioned earlier, we know when Hokko Life will come out. The studio has just revealed the final release date of the game, and it’s coming very soon!
An Animal Crossing on PC… but not only
See you on September 27 on PC of course, but also on all other platforms (physical and dematerialized). To celebrate its release from early access, the game is indeed available for release on PS4, Xbox One and even Nintendo Switch. Something to delight players from other platforms who envy the experience offered by Animal Crossing on Nintendo consoles. Especially since Hokko Life has nothing to be ashamed of in the face of its spiritual father. Despite the small means, the Swedish studio managed to offer us a rich and serious experience.
Gathering rather positive opinions, the early access had managed to intrigue many players and to garner fairly good reviews. To this were added many updates. From Farm, to Mayor’s Merits, and not to mention the addition of the Chic Village, Hokko Life has come a long way in a year. New areas, new accessories, new inhabitants, new narrative, new activities and new rewards… that makes it new. It is hoped that the game will be produced on this release after its release.
