Hokko Life (cozy community sim) headed to Nintendo Switch this September

After over a year spent in Early Access on Steam, the full version of Hokko Life is finally ready for release. For players on Nintendo Switch, that means they will soon be able to check out this cozy community sim developed by Wonderscope Games!

Indeed, Team17 have announced that Hokko Life will be released on September 27th in Europe and North America. It will be available at retail and on the Nintendo eShop.

Here’s a trailer:

Having launched into Steam Early Access in June last year, Hokko Life invites players to customise and cultivate their very own cosy community, with mini-games, friendly villagers, and an intricate design tool all coming together to create a charming environment for players to put their own stamp on.

Naturally, this version of the game will include all the content added since the launch on Early Acess in June 2021, with all the following updates available right away:

  • The Farming Update, which added a new area to the game and gave players the opportunity to flex their green fingers
  • The Village Chic Update, which introduced over 250 new hats, masks, glasses, and other accessories
  • The Super Shopper Update, which allows players to visit a new city centre location
  • The Narrative Update, which overhauled the introduction of the game, and introduced four new friendly villagers to Hokko Life;
  • The Mayor Merits Update, allowing players to complete activities in game in exchange for ‘mayor merits’ that unlock perks designed to make life in Hokko a little easier.

Finally, here’s the list of key features:

  • Get Creative: The workshop awaits as players take control over every aspect of Hokko, with the 3D design tool, every aspect of a player’s creation can be tailored to perfection
  • Dare to Design: No detail is too small, everything from the colour, fabric, and angle of the pillow on a chair can be edited
  • Sharing is Caring: Players will be able to share their meticulously crafted designs with friends and other players around the world
  • Back of the Net: A lazy afternoon in Hokko can be spent with a net or pole in hand, catching and collecting the critters crawling around town
  • Meet the Neighbours: Hokko’s townsfolk offer a warm welcome, and with varying personalities, they all make for fantastic friends.

Hokko Life (Switch) comes out on September 27th in Europe and North America.
