The Monster Harvest release date has been delayed so that the developers of the monster collecting and farming ARPG "could focus on incorporating important content." What do these additions include? Well, players can now look forward to a dungeon minimap, more crop variations, the farm size expanding, and a new female character model. There will also be variant dungeon rooms with some rare and unique encounters, unlockable Planimal attacks, new additions to the town and an overhaul of NPC's and relationships, and more structured goals and rewards for completing certain milestones in-game.
What is the new Monster Harvest release date?
Monster Harvest is now set to release July 8th, 2021 digitally on PC, PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and Nintendo Switch. Publisher Merge Games will release physical editions on July 20th. Previously, the release date had been set for May 13th on PC and Switch, with Xbox and PlayStation releases in June.
What is Monster Harvest?
Monster Harvest is a pixelated farming simulator where you can mutate your crops with the Slime in order to create companions who will beat the crap out of everything that gets in your way. There are over 72 mutations, so there are a lot of different Planimals for you to get as you explore the world and take on the evil SlimeCo. in turn-based battles. There's also three unique seasons: Dry, Wet, and Dark, so you'll have to monitor your plants in order to get your preferred Planimals.
While the delay isn't an awesome thing, a lot of these things seem like basic inclusions that the game needs to have, so it makes sense that the game would be delayed in order to ensure that things such as a dungeon minimap will make it into the game. It's only about a two month delay, so it's not a huge deal. Still sucks, though.
