Shephy Headed To Nintendo 3DS



Back in 2013, a solitaire card game called Shephy was released. Players’ goal was to get 1,000 sheep in the field before going through the deck three times or running out of sheep in their field. Earlier this year, Arc System Works brought Shephy to Apple iOS and Android devices, and now a Nintendo 3DS release has been confirmed. On November 9, 2016, Shephy will come to the Nintendo 3DS in Japan and cost 500円 (~5).


In Shephy, players play cards from their deck to (hopefully) continually grow their flock of sheep. You have 1, 3, 10, 30, 100, 300, and 1,000 Sheep cards, as well as event cards. An example of a helpful card is Fill the Earth, a good way to start since it places all the 1 Sheep cards in your hand in the field, or Sheep Dog, which lets you discard one of the cards in your hand. An example of a bad card is Crowding card, which forces you to release all but two sheep cards.


The Nintendo 3DS version of Shephy will offer all of the modes found in the Apple iOS and Android versions of the game. There is a Practice tutorial that teaches you how to play. Standard Shephy lets you play the solitaire game as normal. The Post Love Story mode is seven chapters long and has different rules in each one. Challenge sees if you can reach the maximum possible number of sheep in the field in the game, which is 7,000. 



Shephy is immediately available worldwide on Apple iOS and Android devices.
