Nintendo Switch players can look forward to Fae Farm, an intriguing new farming life simulator with an enchanted fairy theme from Phoenix Labs. The game was announced at the September 2022 Nintendo Direct and is listed on the Switch eShop for a Spring 2023 release.
Fae Farm Overview
In Fae Farm, you explore the magical land of Azoria not necessarily by yourself but with up to three other players courtesy of its local and online co-op functions. You can plant and cultivate crops to grow, decorate, and develop your farm to get access to quality of life improvements and you can go on quests by venturing into dungeons, collecting resources as you complete them.

Phoenix Labs, the developer of Dauntless, shared their vision and insights regarding Fae Farm‘s development.
“From the artwork and the game design, to the handcrafted world and seamless online play, Fae Farm exemplifies our desire to create timeless games that will be shared for generations.”
“With Fae Farm we wanted to take our favorite elements of the sim genres we love, infuse them with magic and beautiful art, and wrap everything in a light-hearted cooperative experience,” said De Sousa. “I can’t wait to see what kind of cozy homesteads players build in Azoria.”
Fae Farm launches on Switch in the spring of next year. A lot more details on the game can be found on their official website. We’ve been having more farming simulation-type games coming out lately, and I’m loving all the cozy options to choose from.
