Have you herd?
SUCCESS Corporation released a title called Hakoniwa Bokujou Hitsuji Mura on Switch in Japan back in November of last year. Back in April, we learned that the game will be renamed Shepherd’s Crossing for a release in North America and Europe. We originally heard it was launching in June 2023, but that never came to be. Thankfully, the wait is finally over, as the game is launching on Switch today.
In Shepherd’s Crossing, life on a sandbox ranch begins again. Players are entrusted with a single box garden (ranch), which they use to raise animals and crops. There is no money, and animals and crops are bartered. Although a main storyline exists, the ultimate goal is entirely up to the player.
Shepherd’s Crosisng is a different kind of box garden simulation game that pursues the fun of increasing what you want and creating the landscape of your choice. Less than 20 years have passed since the original Shepherd’s Crossing.
Zoom Out the Ranch and Get Cute – The ranch can now be zoomed in and out in four levels. When zoomed out to the maximum, animals and items in the ranch are displayed in dot-by-dot equal size. Breed lots of animals and enjoy watching them move all over the place!
Number Of Item Slots Increased to Seven – The number of items you can carry at once has increased from three in the original version. The number of items you can carry at once has been increased from three in the original version to seven! You can also organize your cluttered farm.
