Modus Games and Italic Pig have confirmed a release date for their “adorable and touching” dinosaur ranch-builder Paleo Pines, which is coming to Nintendo Switch.

Set on a “wonderfully quirky island populated with friendly dinosaurs and welcoming townsfolk,” when you arrive you will move into an old ranch that you must fix up. While much of your time will be spent making your own patch of paradise, you will also be able to team up with Lucky, your trusty Parasaurolophus, as you work to discover the lost history of Paleo Pines.

You can meet and enlist dinosaurs to help fix up your ranch and grow crops, turning your unremarkable plot of land into the dinosaur ranch of your dreams. To befriend them, you will need to use tasty treats, give them nose boops or create comfy pens, keeping track of their favourites and dislikes in your handy dino journal.

There are plenty of locations for you to explore whether that be flowery fields or high canyons, although it is up to you to make the most of each day as you discover enchanting landscapes and stumble on different species in the wilderness.

The publisher has outlined the game’s key features, which include:

  • Embark on Your Dino Quest: Set off on a lively adventure with your dino pal, Lucky, who you’ve known since she was just an egg. Is she the last of her kind? The other Parasaurolophus are missing, and it’s up to you and Lucky to uncover their whereabouts. Explore Paleo Pines, a charming island filled with friendly townsfolk and hidden corners. Build a new home, make friends, and unravel the island’s lost history. Get ready for a journey filled with delightful discoveries alongside your trusty steed Lucky!
  • Create Your Cozy Dino Sanctuary: Set up your home base on the island as you go about your quest. Paleo Pines is a place where you can express your individuality and creativity; no two ranches are the same! Use decor to build a romantic garden, give your ranch a cozy woodland vibe, or go full-on-farmer with rows and rows of tilled soil. Furthermore, customize your character as you like with a variety of features, curate a colorful collection of clothing, and change your style using the wardrobe!
  • Discover and Befriend Dinosaurs: The island of Paleo Pines is a dino lover’s dream! A collection of cheeky dinosaurs roam the wild areas waiting to become your friends, as well as ranch helpers. Coax them by mimicking their calls with your flute, then seal the deal with a tasty treat and trustworthy nose boop! Gain their trust by creating cozy pens and learning what keeps them happy. Dinos move around and some are harder to find than others, or may appear only under special conditions, so new discoveries await you as you explore the island.
  • Master the Art of Dino Ranching: Farm to your heart’s content, growing crops all year round with (and for) your dino besties! Start out planting and watering by hand, but earn your new friends’ trust and they’ll help you deliver a roarsome harvest that you can trade with the townsfolk. As your ranch grows, you’ll learn that each dino has a special farming skill to help you with your tasks. With a bit of love, care, and attention to detail, you can grow the highest quality produce in all of Paleo Pines. Soon you and your dino ranch hands will be the talk of the market!
  • Explore Enchanting Landscapes: There’s plenty to explore out in the wilds of Paleo Pines, from the flowery fields of Veridian Valley to the red canyons of Ariacotta. Make the most of each day by venturing throughout the lush landscapes across the island, each with their own charm, collectable items, and dinos to discover. Take a leisurely stroll through green meadows, foraging for wild crops as you go, or hop on your trusty dino mount on a hunt for hidden corners. You’ll never run out of things to find or dinosaurs to befriend!
  • Befriend a Charming Community: A quirky (and friendly!) array of townsfolk on the island can’t wait to meet you and help you on your quest. Granny might have a stubborn side, but get to know her and she’s an ol’ softie. Building friendships within the community is just as important as building friendships with your dinosaurs. As you ride dinos, farm, and explore, you will come across new characters, each with their own story, items to share, and knowledge to exchange. Help them out day or night by completing quests, opening up new areas, and visiting the stores and community hubs.

Paleo Pines will release at retail and digitally on the Nintendo eShop for Nintendo Switch worldwide on 26 September 2023.
