There’s a surprising lack of simulation games that rely upon you simply relaxing and playing as a simple merchant but luckily it seems that this year we will get one that not only provides that Animal Crossing-like experience but also a healthy dose of kittie cats.
Mineko’s Night Market is set to be released on both PC and (recently announced) the Switch too. It follows a young girl who travels to a Japanese inspired island covered from head to toe in our favourite fur felines. It’s up to us to run our own market, understand the folklore of the local island, help the people who live here and take part in a whole host of minigames. It certainly wears its Animal Crossing inspirations on it’s chest but with the very unique art style and wonderfully silly tone this game is set to stand out from the crowd. I just hope it’s just as successful as something like Stardew Valley.
That’s all for now, and as always. It’s not just a game, It’s a Life.
