Budding beekeepers rejoice – your favorite beekeeping sim APICO is bringing its highly anticipated update, APICO 2.0: I Can’t Beelieve It’s Not Butter(flies)!, to Switch on May 11th, 2023.

From publisher Whitethorn Games and developer TNgineers, APICO combines resource gathering, biology, and minigames with ideas from both real-life and fantasy beekeeping and gardening, as it teaches players about the ins-and-outs of maintaining a healthy hive and the importance of our irreplaceable pollinating pals. The islands of APICO were once abuzz with different species of bees, and it’s up to players to rediscover lost species, cross-breed new ones, and repopulate each unique bee-ome. Progressing further into the game may also uncover some forgotten secrets.
