NIS America has announced that its life-creating sandbox game Happy Birthdays will come with brand new content when it launches on Nintendo Switch. The news comes via a press release in which the new content is detailed.

First off, in-game items have been replaced with a skill system that rewards and encourages shaping the world and capturing creatures. Performing these actions will generate stars, which players can use to activate skills that affect the terrain, temperature, moisture levels, and more. There are also exclusive creatures for Switch players, with three elemental dragons called Gaea Drakonis, Ouranos Drakonis, and Hydor Drakonis being added. The dragons only appear when conditions in the world are just right, so players should keep an eye out for them at all times.

 

Originally included as DLC, Monuments will be available for players to purchase from the get-go on Nintendo Switch. They are cosmetic items which can be purchased with Stars, the in-game currency. One of the most important conditions a player must make when starting out is what biome they are going to use. When starting a new game, players can now choose from a lush grassland, a bone-dry desert, or a frozen tundra as their starting world. Each of these biomes has separate completion objectives based on their environment.

Happy Birthdays is set to launch on Nintendo Switch on June 5, 2018. The game is an improved version of the PlayStation 4 and PC version which is called Birthdays the Beginning. The game is designed by Harvest Moon Creator Yasuhiro Wada and tasks players with creating their very own world filled with prehistoric creatures and separate eco-systems. The player guides the world as it evolves, varying things like temperature and topography.
