Garden Buddies release date blooms onto Switch

If your green thumbs are tingling, it’s because the Garden Buddies release date is here, and the game is almost ready to welcome us into its grounds.

Garden Buddies release date - small characters in a garden surrounded by rocks and flowers

Be honest – who here doesn’t like a wholesome and cute adventure now and again? Garden Buddies fits this bill perfectly, and we’re excited to play it. The good news is there’s now an official Garden Buddies release date and you don’t have to wait long until it’s available.

Garden Buddies takes you on an adventure into a woodland, where you meet your enthusiastic new friend Mutsy. They’re vaguely apple-shaped and help to introduce you to this new leafy world. It just sounds like a really lovely gardening game to us.

Not only can you build up a garden into a blooming oasis, but Garden Buddies focuses on relaxation and mindfulness. In the game, there are grounding and breathing techniques to manage everyday anxiety and stress. Now, I don’t know about you, but the change of the seasons never fails to ramp up my anxiety, so grounding exercises sound great to me.

While destressing and planting plenty of greenery you meet other creatures that need your help, and you can solve their problems through intriguing mini-games woven into the story like catching bugs or stacking some rocks.
