My Time At Portia Coming To Nintendo Switch
Pathea Games and Team 17 are bringing My Time at Portia to the Nintendo Switch later this year. You’ll spend your time upgrading your workshop to craft new items for your fellow villagers. You’ll need to explore ancient ruins and dungeons to mine for resources and battle monsters. The game is available today on Steam Early Access an will arrive at a later point this year on the Switch. The game sure looks pretty! Let’s hope it’s fun to boot.
Award-winning international games label Team17 and China based independent developer Pathea Games have today launched their charming sandbox simulation RPG, My Time at Portia, into Steam Early Access.
Arriving in the enchanting town of Portia, you’ll set up shop in a derelict workshop left to you by your Pa. It’s down to you to gather resources and put his trusty, old workshop handbook and workbench to good use, as your craft your home back to shape and make it your own. Then convert the empty woodland around your new residence into a quaint little farm, where you can grow your own crops using clever planter boxes and cultivation techniques!
As well as developing your own workshop, you’ll be able to take on daily commissions and villager requests which enable you to craft your way into the hearts of the local community. The town of Portia is filled with a vibrant cast of unforgettable faces all with exciting stories to share, energetic personalities and individual behaviours. Make sure you take the time to get to know them all – who knows, maybe romance could be in the air!
On the outskirts of town, you’ll discover ancient ruins and dungeons to explore. Here you can mine for resources and face fearsome monsters and bosses that stand between you and the secrets of Portia.
The Early Access version of My Time at Portia already contains many key features and hours of engaging gameplay, but there are plenty more planned on the journey to full release.
My Time at Portia is available for PC via Steam Early Access today for £15.99/$19.99/19,99€ and will be heading to Xbox One, PlayStation 4 and Nintendo Switch™ later this year.
