Harvestella demo now available on the Nintendo Switch

Square Enix let people get an initial hands-on with their upcoming life-simulation RPG Harvestella with the release of a surprise demo on the Nintendo Switch starting today. The demo is not available on PC unfortunately.

The Harvestella demo allows players to play through the early portions of the game and supports save data transfer, so they can carry their progress into the full game.

A new trailer for Harvestella shares more new footage for the upcoming title. It showcases a snowy town and a beachside village that players will come across in the game. From farming the land, battling with allies, and getting to know the townspeople, Harvestella aims to provide its own take on the life-simulation genre as the disruptive season of death, Quietus, settles in temporarily as the seasons change.

Several new combat features that were recently introduced, including Break Gauges and Special Attacks.

Harvestella releases on the Nintendo Switch and PC (Steam) on November 4. Take a look at its new trailer below and you can try it for yourself with its demo now available on the Nintendo Switch.
