White Owls, the team led by cult developer Hidetaka Suehiro, AKA SWERY of D4: Dark Dreams Don't Die and Deadly Premonition fame, has confirmed via today's Nintendo Indie Direct Showcase that it is bringing The Good Life to Switch in 2020.
The game, self-described as a 'debt replayment daily life RPG' and 'Daily Life Simulator x SWERISM', was funded via a successful Kickstarter campaign, although it fell short of a Nintendo Switch stretch goal. However, it seems that something has changed or someone has stepped in because the quirky game is now set for a Switch release this year.
You play as American journalist Naomi who has moved to Britain in order to pay off her debt. Cracking out her camera she discovers that the backwater village in which she now resides isn't all that it seems. Looking a little like a mash-up of Twin Peaks and the Galar region from Pokémon Sword and Shield, it's perhaps better to let the screenshots do the talking. We routinely restrain ourselves to four, but perhaps six are in order this time:
Looks good, no? The game was originally scheduled for a November 2019 release but was delayed, so it seems that the Switch version should launch near (or alongside) other platforms. There's no fixed date yet, but we Britons certainly enjoyed the familiar details we found in the Galar region and also in last year's Untitled Goose Game, so it'll be fun to see SWERY's take on ol' Blighty.
