Harvestella presents the town of Nemea, the teacher Istina, the Sky Lancer job, and more

Square Enix has provided a new update on Harvestella, the life simulation RPG they unveiled at the end of June. Thanks to the Australian Classification Board, it was also unveiled that the developer of Harvestella is Live Wire. They were the same studio responsible for Ender Lilies: Quietus of the Knights.

The new update on Harvestella leads with introducing the Town of Spring, Nemea. Due to the Spring Seaslight nearby, Nemea's flowers bloom throughout the entire year and is a beautiful town to feast your eyes on as cherry blossoms illuminate it at night.


Nemea has its own share of problems though. Unfamiliar monsters have been making trouble for the town's residents from a giant egg that has recently appeared by the Spring Seaslight. Upon reaching Nemea, players assist Asyl and the Argus Brigade protect it.

One of the Nemea residents that players will become involved with is a teacher named Istina. She teaches children at the town's orphanage and is described to be "intellectual, quiet, and rarely displays her emotions openly." Istina has only been in Nemea for a few years. When she meets Harvestella's protagonist, she will eventually have to confront the past she has been trying to hide.


When Harvestella was first announced, three jobs were shown off - the Fighter, Mage, and Shadow Walker. This time, Square Enix has pulled the curtain back on the Sky Lancer job. Sky Lancers wield a spear to execute physical attacks that possess a wind attribute. Since it learns a lot of wide-range skills, the Sky Lancer is fairly adept at taking on multiple enemies at once.

Next, the Square Enix Blog touches upon Character Stories in Harvestella. Allies that join players in battle will have a Character Story associated with them. Learning more about these characters and their problems will have Harvestella's protagonist get closer with them and thus, expanding their combat capabilities and maybe even a reward.


Lastly, a few of the daily life activities were expanded on. Some of the spring crops players can produce are a Nemean Tomato, Wisty Peach, Cucumble, and Strawbuddy. These ingredients can be combined with others to make a Nemea Bolognese, Peach Rose Mousse, Strawberry Shortcake, and Zucchini and mince sandwiches dish.

As for fishing, the fish players catch can be sold for money or utilized for cooking. What they catch depends on the location and other conditions; sometimes, they may catch something other than a fish. Plus, players can upgrade their fishing rods to catch rarer fish.

To earn more money, players can also ship the fruit and vegetables they harvest from their fields. Creating processed goods from crafted machines will fetch for an even higher price.

Harvestella releases on November 4 for the Nintendo Switch and PC (Steam).
