Thunder Lotus has released a new trailer for Spiritfarer on Nintendo Switch, revealing “multiple heretofore unseen characters and environments.”

In creating Spiritfarer, the developer has looked to deliver an experience that is both entertaining and emotionally moving.

You play as Stella, ferrymaster to the deceased, and, after building a boat to explore the world, must befriend and care for the spirits that you encounter before finally releasing them into the afterlife.

That will see you farm, mine, fish, harvest, cook, and craft your way across mystical seas, with the chance for a second player to join you as Daffodil the cat in cooperative play.

“The new teaser certainly does accurately convey the forward momentum that our production has at this point!” explains Spiritfarer creative director Nicolas Guérin.

“The game has only grown grander and more varied over the past few months, and it’s great to finally be giving a spotlight to some of the awesome new levels and characters the team has been creating. We’re excited to be adding Stadia and Epic Games Store to our list of launch platforms as well, since we’ve had many requests for this from our fans.”

Spiritfarer will release on the Nintendo eShop for Nintendo Switch worldwide in 2020.
