Gathering items around the island and crafting various things to both sell and fulfill the townsfolks’ various requests is the name of the game with this capitalism simulator – but does Mineko’s Night Market feel like a breakaway from the daily grind, or more like actual work?

Mineko's Night Market

Remember Mineko’s Night Market? The narrative-driven adventure/merchant simulation game was announced during a Nindies Showcase last year. Originally, the team hoped to have it ready sometime in early 2019. That didn’t happen in the end. Yesterday, the team shared a status update.

Meowza Games indicated that it went through a few “setbacks and delays”. Aside from that though, the project has been a mental and physical grind, which forced the team to take “some necessary steps to improve our overall health”. Mineko’s Night Market still remains in the works, but will “take a bit longer than we originally planned”.

Humble and Meowza Games are bringing Mineko’s Night Market to Switch, Nintendo has confirmed. A release is planned for later this year.

Mineko’s Night Market, an adventure / merchant simulation games, takes inspiration from games such as Animal Crossing, but has a bigger emphasis on story, crafting, and exploration. We have some additional information and a video below.
