Harvestella crafting – build your way to agricultural dominance

Check out our Harvestella crafting guide to learn about one of the many game mechanics in the upcoming farming sim cum action RPG from Square Enix

Harvestella is a brand new game that Square Enix showed off at the recent Nintendo Direct Mini. It features a whole host of different mechanics, as you build up your relationships in the town, work on your farm, take care of your home, oh, and also head out and slay monsters that are threatening to ruin all that fun.

One thing you can do, when monsters aren’t trying to murder you, is hang out at home and make stuff. This is where Harvestella’s crafting comes in, letting you combine different materials to make something greater than the sum of its parts. Just imagine Animal Crossing, but also everything outside the island is just awful.

Or, imagine Rune Factory, which is a very similar concept, as you can see in our Rune Factory 5 review. If you’re not into the farming life, we’ve got more action coming to our Switches on the Nier Automata Switch release date, or you can check out our Nier Automata 2B and Nier Automata 9S guides if you’re a little unsure what’s going on with those weird robots.

Now, let’s get into the good stuff.

There’s very little information about Harvestella’s crafting, other than the fact that it exists and you can do it in your house. Square Enix handily told us that it “will help you when exploring the dangerous dungeons.” Thanks, never woulda guessed. Anyway, check out one of the crafted items above.
