Prideful Sloth, which is made up by former Activision producer and Rocksteady veterans, have announced today that Yonder: The Cloud Catcher Chronicles will be arriving on the Nintendo Switch on May 17th. The game sees players explore the vibrant but troubled island of Gemea. A Switch-exclusive photo mode will help you capture precious moments and share them with your friends.
Shipwrecked due to an unexpected storm, your young hero or heroine soon learns that they’re on the gorgeous island of Gemea. While taking refuge in a cave, a magical sprite explains that the land’s natural beauty is tainted by a strange, dark substance called Murk. With the sprite by your side, it’s up to you to both cleanse the land and assist the townsfolk and gain their trust. Farm, craft, cook, brew, and fish to restore the land to its former glory!
Wander through grand forests, resplendent peaks, and breezy shores to befriend Gemea’s lively villagers and adorable animals. Eight biomes with breathtaking day, night, and weather cycles abound with sprites that will help expel the murk, offer quests to help you earn your place on the island, and an abundance of other secrets to discover at your leisure.
The delightful wonders of Yonder are like a warm hug, and the Nintendo Switch system lets you take that hug wherever you want. Kick off those shoes at the end of a long day and relax while you continue your journey of self-discovery.
“Yonder can be your home away from home on Nintendo Switch,” said Cheryl Vance, co-founder and director at Prideful Sloth. “We hope to see players embrace the calming feel of the game, no matter where they are.”
Yonder will be available digitally for $29.99 USD on the Nintendo eShop, and will be available via physical retail for $39.99 on June 12 in the United States and June 15 in Europe and Australia.
Yonder: The Cloud Catcher Chronicles will be playable in English, French, Italian, German, Spanish, Japanese, Russian, and Brazilian Portuguese.
