Yonder the Cloud Catcher Chronicles Switch

Is this a leak, or a mistake? The gaming media picked up on a listing on Amazon Germany that is very much up my alley. Yonder, the Cloud Catcher Chronicles is up for pre-order on the Switch!

If this isn’t a fluke, then it means an interesting adventure game is coming to the Switch, and to play as a handheld game. Up till now it has been out on Steam and the PS4, so it would be my first acquaintance with it.

If you know what kind of games I like, you’ll know I fell for the cute style and the promise of farming, crafting and exploring. All elements I love in a game! The game is made by studio Pridefull Sloth from Brisbane Australia.

See, this is what it shows on amazon.de:


In the style of Breath of the Wild, it’s an open world adventure game with a variety of locations to explore. The ultimate goal is to become the champion of Gemea and save it from an evil murk, which can be done by contributing to the island and taking on tasks such as farming, crafting, cooking, fishing and brewing, and forming relationships with townspeople.

This is what the developer describes:

Yonder is set on the vast island of Gemea, a lush frontier with eight distinct environments ranging from tropical beaches to snow-capped summits. Each location has its own flora and fauna, along with changing seasons and a day-night cycle. Gemea, once a paradise, still maintains the appearance of one, yet an evil murk has enshrouded the land and its people in despair.

As the hero you will explore Gemea, uncovering the island’s secrets and the mysteries within yourself as you embark on a journey of self-discovery. On a quest to become the island’s champion, you join forces with Sprites, creatures who are the only thing capable of dispersing the murk, to save Gemea and its people.

The towns of Gemea are filled with kind-hearted residents who have faced many difficulties since the murk arrived. By contributing to the island through farming, crafting, cooking, fishing and brewing, relationships can be built with the locals, who offer everything from resources to a new farm as rewards.

So what do you think? Sounds good, doesn’t it? I’d better get on with my current games: at March 30 Atelier Lydie & Suelle, the Alchemists and the Mysterious Paintings will be here for Switch. Harvest Moon Light of Hope should be close and then this might be added at the end of May.

Also, we can look forward to My Time at Portia and to Re: Legend should reach the Switch at the end of the year. Up till now, it’s been pretty quiet in the simulation, crafting and farming corner of the Switch. Only Stardew Valley scratches the sim itch for me, but with all these beauties coming, I might be spoiled for choice!

We love to hear from you!
