Yasuhiro Wada is well known as the creator of the original Harvest Moon series (now called Story of Seasons outside Japan), but also of Birthdays the Beginning. And this year, not one but two of his games are headed to the Nintendo Switch: Happy Birthdays (an enhanced version of Birthdays the Beginning), and Little Dragons Café.
Little Dragons Café is a brand new game developed in collaboration with Aksys Games, to be released this Summer on Nintendo Switch.
The game is about a twin brother and sister learning to cook and manage a small café, under their mother’s tutelage. All is well until the day the twins find their mother in her bed, in a deep sleep she just won’t wake up from.
In order to save their mother, the twins have no other choice but to follow the instructions of a mysterious old man, who suddenly appears and tells them that they have to raise a dragon. Of course, they need to do so while managing the café, which is definitely not going to be easy. Fortunately, they have three rather quirky employees to help them.
Here’s the key features of Little Dragons Café:
- Dragon Husbandry – Embrace your parental instincts and raise your very own dragon! Through wise decisions, proper nutrition, and empathetic nurturing show the world the true potential of your dragon companion!
- Culinary Capitalism – Learn new recipes and master the art of cooking while running your very own café. Explore the world, discover new ingredients, and expand your menu (and your restaurant) while catering to the whims of your customers.
- Grow Your Own – The tastiest dishes use the freshest ingredients, and the best way to insure that is to grow your own produce. Till the land and fish the rivers to gather the most flavorful fixings for your signature dishes.
- Serve the People – Feeding is nurturing, so you not only cook for your neighbors, but also help them with their problems to increase your popularity and the general happiness of everyone around you.
Unfortunately, we don’t have any screenshots of the game yet, but we do have an artwork of the twins and their dragon:
