Mineko's Night Market Gamescom 2022 trailer

Original (8/26): Quite some time has passed since we last heard about Mineko’s Night Market. The project was confirmed for Switch way back in 2018, but still hasn’t launched.

We did hear the following year that there were delays and setbacks, and that it was simply going to take longer than expected. Fans can now see how things have been going with a brand new trailer that has come out for Gamescom 2022.

Those that need a refresher on Mineko’s Night Market can read the following overview:

Mineko’s Night Market is a game that celebrates Japanese culture while introducing a heartwarming story about friendship, tradition, and many, many cats.

Play as Mineko, a curious girl who has just arrived at her new home on a struggling Japanese-inspired island at the base of Mount Fugu. The superstitious locals on the island worship the Sun Cat, Abe. What was always thought to be a long-told myth has the town puzzled, as sightings of Abe have begun to surface among the residents of the island in recent days.

Discover the secrets behind the town and restore the struggling village to its former glory. All the while, manage your daily activities, complete various jobs, venture on whimsical quests, and craft peculiar items in preparation for the weekly Night Market!

Key Features

  • Play and compete in a variety of Night Market games like themed parades, cat racing, and stage performances
  • Solve puzzles, evade nosy Agents, and sneak into locked areas with various disguises
  • Craft peculiar items with the resources you find around the world through a variety of work-bench mini-games
  • Befriend and barter with dozens of townsfolk at the weekly Night Market to sell almost anything you make and find
  • Hours of exploration and four seasons to experience across the vast island of Mt. Fugu
