Deiland: Pocket Planet Edition

System: Switch
Release date: April 15, 2021
Developer: Chibig
Publisher: Chibig


Summer in Mara was one of the more recent games that took me by surprise in terms of how much I enjoyed it, as I really love the sense of serenity it offers with a small but playful map that gives just enough to keep things consistently fun – especially for the explorative types. Though Chibig is no stranger to game development, it was the first of their portfolio to hit consoles, and while the Switch version had a few quirks, it still retained what was most important without having to sacrifice much outside of some visual quality. Deiland may be new to some, but the game has technically been out since Chibig brought it to mobile in 2016. Deiland: Pocket Planet Edition on Switch now marks the third time it has been released, but as someone who’s played it briefly on mobile and then on PC just before the Switch version for the purposes of this review, this would also mark the third time Deiland has simply been… Deiland, with little between releases to feel like a sizeable update or enhancement from prior SKUs.

Deiland: Pocket Planet Edition, which was first announced for Switch back in October, has secured a final release date. The game will launch digitally on April 15.

Deiland: Pocket Planet Edition is a single-player adventure RPG with sandbox elements, including farming, crafting, and building. The Switch version includes “new looks, new music, new playability, and exclusive DLC content.” There’s also a new “seasons” system.

Here’s more on Deiland: Pocket Planet Edition:

Deiland originally released in 2018. For the new Pocket Planet Edition on Switch, fans can expect new content, all DLC included, and graphical/gameplay improvements.
