Re: Legend is a co-op simulation that incorporates everything from monster-raising to city-building and it’s starting to turn heads. It survived a Square Enix Collective vote with 99% and, announced via press release, Re: Legend's 600% funding on Kickstarter is propelling the charming title to launches on Nintendo Switch, PS4, and Xbox One.
There’s a certain allure in games where you cultivate a plot of digital land and all its creatures or crops. Re: Legend is a game seeking to bottle that fascination in a game where you’ll be raising creatures called Magnus, farming different crops, and fighting across a vibrant landscape.
The developers express that they were inspired by games such as Rune Factory, Digimon World, Fantasy Life and Monster Rancher but this game will also draw comparisons to the indie farming hit Stardew Valley. Stardew is introducing 4-player co-op in 2018, almost two years after launch, but Re: Legend looks to be placing co-op at the forefront of its feature set.
The Kickstarter campaign for this farming and creature-raising sim only asked for a bit over $51,000 but, at the time of this writing, the game has secured $420,490 with 14 hours left. If it were to only match that amount, it would have been an experience solely for PC players. Thankfully, kickers sped past the stretch goals that started at $184k for Nintendo Switch and completed the home console trifecta at $228k. A few other stretch goals include live orchestra music, additional weapon classes, and creature breeding.
The release date for Re: Legend is TBA at the moment but the Kickstarter has an estimated delivery date of June for backers.

I'm kinda half tempted to grab this just to play on the Switch. But, idk, I can't quite get myself to do it. Something about it feels too much like a mobile game. I guess maybe because its art direction is a little too similar to Oceanhorn?
So it's Stardew Valley meets Monster Hunter: Stories via Fantasy Life.
This looks pretty good, I'd buy it on the Switch
