Publisher Hakama has announced that Worth Life will be making its way to the west on July 14th, 2022. The game comes from producer Yoshifumi Hashimoto, whose previous credits include the likes of Story of Seasons and Rune Factory.

It released in Japan last year on June 24th, 2021, but Switch owners in the west can pre-order on the eShop from July 7th, with a lovely 20% discount applied for early birds.

Here's a run down of the game from Hakama:

Two seasoned professionals of the farming and life simulation genre—producer Yoshifumi Hashimoto and artist Igusa Matsuyama—have come together to create WORTH LIFE, a side-scrolling fantasy RPG. Playing as one of 30 individuals summoned by the king, WORTH LIFE sees you set off on a journey to save the kingdom from a terrible fate. During your quest, you'll be able to raise crops on vacant lots you come across, and build houses for people in need. You'll even be able to take up your sword and bow to face off against monsters. Forge your own path to restoring prosperity and happiness to the kingdom!

Judging from the trailer itself, we're not overly keen on the visual style, but this is definitely one to keep an eye on in the run up to its release, nevertheless.
