Originally launched for PC and PS4 in 2018, Chibig's Deiland didn't get huge attention at the time. Offering us an adventure-RPG with sandbox elements, it reviewed somewhat positively and now, they've just confirmed Deiland: Pocket Planet Edition will launch digitally for Switch on April 15th.
Following a successful Kickstarter campaign last October, Deiland greatly exceeded the €10,000 funding goal, finishing at €75,788. Offering exclusive new content, Chibig outlined what to expect in this press statement:
Deiland: Pocket Planet Edition is a relaxing farming adventure where you will have to take care of your tiny planet. Farm, craft, and fight monsters to make your home a special place and help others with their quest. Discover the story of Arco in this single-player experience; a tale about growing up, helping others, and revealing the secrets that lie on the heart of your planet.
This reimagination of Deiland, Chibig’s first game for PS4 and PC, includes unique content for the Nintendo Switch console, with new looks, new music, new playability, and exclusive DLC content. On top of all of this, this new edition includes a new “seasons” system.
* Customize your planet with trees, plants, crops, flowers, and structures, and take care of your farm animals.
* Discover how the whole planet changes through Spring, Summer, Autumn, and Winter. Each crop will only be available in certain seasons.
* Over 12 characters to meet and befriend.
* Day and night cycle that has an effect on the world with natural elements like meteor showers, storms, shooting stars, aurora borealis, or hurricane winds.
* More than 100 quests to uncover the secrets that the heart of your planet holds.
* Cute graphics and a relaxing soundtrack will allow you to ease up the bustling daily routine and relax while you play.
* Same shared universe as Summer in Mara, so players from that game will see familiar characters and locations.
Deiland: Pocket Planet Edition pre-orders will go live on April 1st, and Chibig has also confirmed a 15% pre-order discount, bringing this down to $16.99 / €16.99. That'll revert back to full price on April 21st, for $19.99 / €19.99 .
