People will have to wait two more months to play Monster Harvest, as the release date ended up delayed from May 13, 2021 to July 8, 2021. However, Maple Powered Games offered a full explanation for the delay. The goal is to make players’ farm and town even larger, so people will have more room to grow and more to do while in Planimal Point.
The big alterations seem to involve the scope and size of the game. For example, the farm people own will be larger. Which might work out for folks, as one of the other additions will be more kinds of crops. Planimal Point will be bigger too, and the relationship system will be get “an overhaul.” (In the game, befriending shopkeepers could get you discounts.) You’ll also have more to do and additional rewards for doing them.
Some other additions cover both cosmetic and practical changes. For example, the female avatar will look different than before. There will be more dungeon encounters to stumble upon and you will have a minimap to help you through areas. Fighting might be more varied as well, as there will be additional Planimal attacks.
The update didn’t mention how Monster Harvest being delayed will affect the PS4 and Xbox One launch dates. When the original release dates came up, the Switch and PC versions were due on May 13, 2021 and the PS4 and Xbox One ones on June 3, 2021.
Monster Harvest will come to the Nintendo Switch and PC on July 8, 2021. PlayStation 4 and Xbox One versions are also on the way.
