Humble Games and Moonlight Kids have announced that The Wild at Heart, an indie adventure game that launched on PC and Xbox One earlier this summer, will now be arriving on Switch later this year.
Telling a story of childhood escapism, this “story-rich” adventure will no doubt remind Nintendo fans of Pikmin. The game sees you taking command of a magical swarm of curious creatures, teaming up with them to battle threatening wildlife and supernatural foes, build new pathways, and discover the world’s secrets.
In the trailer above, you’ll spot these creatures being used to pick up and carry objects and fight against enemies, just like Captain Olimar’s trusty band of plant-animal hybrids in Nintendo’s beloved series. Make sure to give it a watch.
EXPLORATION: Explore a unique world, set up new camps, locate rare resources, befriend strange creatures, and loot ancient shrines.
COLLECTION: Collect magic crystals, scrap, electrical components, and other unique resources.
BATTLE: Command a diverse army of spritelings to battle hostile creatures
CRAFT: Craft new structures, items, tools, and upgrades.
DISCOVER: Discover the truth of this forgotten world and its inhabitants.
