Private Division and Wētā Workshop have revealed Tales of the Shire: A The Lord of the Rings Game, which is in development for Nintendo Switch.

You will have the chance to experience the storybook return to Middle-earth’s most inviting region, living life as a Hobbit in the idyllic town of Bywater.

After creating and personalising your Hobbit, you can experience the world of J.R.R. Tolkien’s beloved universe in your own way. Whether decorating your cosy Hobbit home with furniture and home décor, unwinding in the breathtaking pastures, visiting the townsfolks’ local shops or enjoying a second breakfast, you must help bring the community together and achieve official village status by throwing the greatest Bywater Festival the Shire has ever seen.

There are relaxing outdoor activities to partake in, including cooking, fishing, foraging and gardening. That will see you toss your lure to catch trout from the glistening waters of Bywater Pool, gather wild mushrooms, and then use the collected ingredients to bake a succulent pie to serve for luncheon.

“We’re excited to provide players with the opportunity to fulfil their fantasy of living their own humble Hobbit life in the Shire,” enthuses Wētā Workshop head of product Kelly Tyson. “Tales of the Shire brings a cosy new dimension to the way fans can experience Middle-earth, with plenty of wholesome, Hobbit-centric gameplay to win-over newcomers to the genre.”

Take-Two Interactive chief strategy officer and Private Division head Michael Worosz adds: “The team at Wētā Workshop is creating a brilliant representation of J.R.R. Tolkien’s beloved works that gives players the agency to create their own Hobbit experience in Middle-earth. Players have been clamoring for a warm and inviting The Lord of the Rings game for years now, and it’s exactly what we’re delivering with Tales of the Shire.”

Tales of the Shire: A The Lord of the Rings Game will be released digitally on the Nintendo eShop for Nintendo Switch worldwide in the second half of 2024.
