Explore. Relax. Your future—and the future of Coral Island—is what you make of it.

Coral Island Key Features

Below is an overview of what you can expect from Coral Island when it launches this fall:

KEY FEATURES:

Build Your Dream Farm – Transform your overrun land on Coral Island into a lush and lively dreamscape—you decide what to build, what crops to grow, and which animals you’d like to tend.
Write your own story – On Coral Island, the story changes with each passing season, but life just goes with the flow. Spend your days exploring, or find that special someone in town to build a life together. Save the seas, brave monster-filled caverns, or focus on perfecting your farm. It’s all up to you.
Be yourself – Choose from a wide variety of outfits, accessories, and physiques—you’ll find plenty of options to express yourself, find your style, and be whoever you want to be.
Befriend a diverse cast of islanders – Get to know the 50+ characters from all walks of life who live on Coral Island. Converse with them, find out more about their interests, and try to impress them with just the right gift.
Find that special someone – Meet 20 singles who are ready to mingle! Build relationships, sweep them off their feet, and find the one—and when you’re ready, embark on a new chapter of your story together at the farm.
Restore an island once paradise – Make Coral Island a better place for everyone! Take part in community projects to liven up the town, expand the local museum, and discover how to restore heritage sites. Increase the town’s rank and your community will thrive!
Catch of the day – Island living has a lot of perks, including being just a stone’s throw away from fun activities like hunting for insects and catching fish.
Dive the ocean & mine the caverns – Go diving to restore the coral reef, or mine precious gemstones in the cavern. Whatever you decide to do, you’ll find loot to hone your tools and upgrade the quality of your livestock and crops.
