Publisher PQube and developer Twin Hearts have revealed Kitaria Fables, an action-RPG-farming hybrid featuring lots and lots of cute anthropomorphic animals. It's coming to PC and consoles next year.
What is Kitaria Fables all about?
PQube describes Kitaria Fables as a "delightfully cute fusion of action-RPG, adventure, and farming sim". It takes place in the world of Canoidera, a hitherto-peaceful place in which wildlife has recently been growing more aggressive. The Empire has sent you to investigate this matter and also to defend its citizens from wildlife attacks. Using your uncle's home of Paw Village as a base, you'll explore the world, comb it for resources, and subsist on crops and equipment you've created yourself. You can check out the announcement trailer for Kitaria Fables below:
Kitaria Fables promises class-free combat, so you can use the sword, bow, and spellbook you've been given in whatever form you wish. The equipment you're able to craft will complement the play style you've picked; if you like to pick off enemies from a distance, you can make equipment which enhances that approach, and the same goes for melee combat and spellcraft.
Over the course of your adventure, you'll also bond with Canoidera's many NPCs. The more you increase your bond with characters in Kitaria Fables, the more rewards you'll receive. Of course, some characters aren't so friendly and won't want to talk to you, so it's up to you to decide who will be your new best friend and who to stay well away from. Kitaria Fables will also support local co-operative multiplayer, so if you've got a friend with whom you want to share the adventure, you'll be able to invite them along with you on quests and into dungeons.
You'll be able to get your hands on Kitaria Fables when it launches next year. Interestingly, PQube says it's launching for "PlayStation and Xbox" as well as PC and Nintendo Switch. This could mean Kitaria Fables will be available on PS5 and Xbox Series X/S as well as PS4 and Xbox One. We'll bring you more on this as we get it.
