Bokujou Monogatari (Story of Seasons, formerly Harvest Moon) creator Yasuhiro Wada is working with Arc System Works on a new life simulation game called Birthdays, and the game is also headed Westward, the company announced.
As previously detailed, Birthdays is called “everybody’s miniature garden game where life is created,” and it’s a life simulation game where you start out with brand-new land and get to create its environments that bring life to creatures, which you can evolve and further develop over time.
The game features all kinds of living organisms—from ancients plants to dinosaurs, and even up to the human race. The ultimate goal of Birthdays is to bring life to all kinds of different creatures. You can even have a world where creatures from different eras coexist together.
Birthdays is releasing in Japan for PlayStation 4 on January 19, 2017. The game is headed to North America and Europe courtesy NIS America, but a Western release date has yet to be announced.
