This brand-new game hopes to introduce the growing generation to the colourful and fun world of farming and blooming nature.
“We’re thrilled beyond measure to introduce young children to farming in a playful and sheltered way,” enthuses Giants Software creative director Thomas Frey. “With John Deere as our ideal partner for Farming Simulator Kids, we’re creating an educational and unforgettable – even inspiring – farming game for young players, one that may even nurture their general interest in farming.”
The publisher has outlined the game’s key features, which include:
- Playful Agriculture and Variety of Mini Games: With cute aesthetics, Farming Simulator Kids invites young players to live a cosy farm life. Educating and entertaining them in a child-friendly environment, the gameplay of Farming Simulator Kids focuses on audiovisual presentation instead of text. Still, virtual neighbours – including some anthropomorphic animal characters – display their needs for help and ask young players to harvest crops or prepare a delicious sandwich.
- Education and Entertainment for the Little Ones: Children explore farm locations to grow and harvest healthy crops, or care for adorable farm animals like cows, chickens, or geese in their stables. As big tractors and other vehicles are a must, kids can operate a variety of machines by renowned manufacturer John Deere. All while creating unforgettable and educational farming stories that are rewarded with achievements and can be captured with a video creator mode.
- Experiencing the Value of Produce: Aside from mini-games like gardening or sandwich making, there is much more to do: Little farmers visit their own farmers’ market to get a feeling for the value of the fresh produce they grew and cared for. They can trade items at a swap shop, create delicious food items from produce, or simply chill out in their house, and meet lovable characters to interact with.
Farming Simulator Kids will be released at retail and digitally on the Nintendo eShop for Nintendo Switch worldwide in Spring 2024.
