Fae Farm preview

Phoenix Labs recently hosted a preview event for their upcoming Switch-exclusive Fae Farm. As only the second game from the developer, it takes a drastically different approach than the team’s first hack-and-slash monster slayer Dauntless. Coming from frantic combat and vicious creatures, Phoenix Labs instead chose a more relaxing and winding experience. Aiming for “cozy,” the mark has been hit fairly well, as upon joining the event I saw the players simply wandering their farm and watching butterflies meander along the fields.

Fae Farm

Dauntless developer Phoenix Labs today unveiled Fae Farm, “a new cozy-casual farming and life simulation that invites players to escape with friends into an enchanted world filled with wonder.” A release is planned for Q2 2023 exclusively on Switch.

Fae Farm lets players control an adventurer invited to join a friendly community and create a home while restoring harmony to the land of Azoria. They can build out their homesteads, explore varied environments, gather resources, and plumb the depths of the world to uncover the magic they’ll need to rebuild Azoria. Single-player is fully supported, though the game also allows for seamless drop-in, drop-out play through online and local wireless multiplayer.

The online action-RPG Dauntless has received its first update on Switch following last week’s launch. Login loading time has been reduced, and numerous fixes have been implemented.

The full patch notes are as follows:

As was announced during today’s Indie World Showcase, Dauntless is launching on Switch today. The online RPG supports full cross-play, allowing Switch owners to hunt Behemoths with friends on Xbox One, PlayStation 4 and PC. Cross-progression is supported as well.

Here’s the latest information on Dauntless:

While Phoenix Labs is working to bring Dauntless to Switch, we now know that it’s not being done entirely in-house. According to the studio’s Chris Fox, Iron Galaxy is also involved.

Iron Galaxy previously ported The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim to Switch. That turned out pretty well in the end, so here’s hoping that Dauntless also turns out well.

Phoenix Labs has produced a new Dauntless trailer that highlights the new Switch version as well as the reveal of Winterhorn Skraev. Check it out below.

Plenty of Switch gameplay of Dauntless was shown during a segment from today’s Nintendo Treehouse: Live at E3 2019 stream. Have a look at the recording below.

At E3 2019 this week, Dauntless is playable for the first time on Switch. Have a look at some off-screen footage below.

The free-to-play, co-op action RPG Dauntless is currently in development for Switch. New footage from the game is available, which we have below.

Phoenix Labs has announced that it will be bringing its online action-RPG Dauntless to Switch. It’ll be hitting Nintendo’s console in 2019.
