Happy Birthdays for Nintendo Switch is launching on June 5th and NIS America is sharing more details on this version. New, exclusive content such as 3 biomes, monuments and creatures have been added to the game, but that’s not all. Gameplay alterations have been made also to improve managing your world.
New Gameplay: In-game items have been replaced with a skill system that rewards and encourages shaping the world and capturing creatures. Performing these actions will generate stars, which players can use to activate skills that affect the terrain, temperature, moisture levels, and more!
Gaea Drakonis, Ouranos Drakonis, and Hydor Drakonis are three mighty (adorable) elemental dragons that only appear when conditions in your world are just right!
Stars generated through gameplay can also be spent to place Monuments—cosmetic decorations that were DLC in the original game. More Monuments become available to the player as they fulfill certain in-game achievements.
New Starting Biomes:
When starting a new game, players can now choose from a lush grassland, a bone-dry desert, or a frozen tundra as their starting world. Each of these biomes have separate completion objectives based on their environment.
