Here Comes Niko! trailer actually increased my life force


Best Job Ever?

Gears for Breakfast, the studio behind beloved adventure A Hat in Time, has revealed the brand new title Here Comes Niko!, currently in development at indie studio Wholesome Games.

As the cute announcement trailer details below, Here Comes Niko! sees the titular kid arrive in a new locale as part of an internship, where they immediately get to micro-managing the lives of themselves and the island’s inhabitants. We get to see Niko growing plants, gathering fruit, solving dilemmas, playing games, exercising, painting, and just generally working hard at enjoying their new world, all while making a bevy of anthropomorphic pals. What a glorious way to live.

With vibes of several titles including Paper Mario, Animal Crossing, and Harvest Moon, and described as a “cozy 3D platformer for tired people”, Here Comes Niko! looks set to become a new time-killing obsession to keep your fingers busy during lazy afternoons. Available for wishlisting right now on Steam, (with a Nintendo Switch edition also in the works), I’m definitely looking forward to hearing more about this cute title in the coming months.
