Stardew Valley meets Pokémon in gorgeous new open world adventure

Think you've seen all the cosy genre offers? Hold up, there's a new adventure coming!

Our passion for adventuring accompanied by adorable creatures knows no bounds. This is why we're thrilled to inform you of an upcoming open world experience that will rival the whimsical joy of Stardew Valley and Pokémon. We're not saying you'll forget those beloved franchises, just that this game will worm its way easily into your hearts.

Pokémon is delivering a new game that we're certain we won't be able to put down. But we must, lest we miss out on the cutesy critters from Yaoling: Mythical Journey a Steam game that looks like it's going to be our new hyper-fixation. It's giving us serious Stardew Valley vibes, which we are here for.

How amazing and ridiculously charming does Yaoling: Mythical Journey look?! We're already deeply invested.

"On your journey across the Land to become a Yokai Keeper, you will traverse through uncharted lands, encounter many never-before seen Yokai, oversee and expand your village, and form new friendships. Yet, a looming evil is spreading, and many Yokai are succumbing to its corruption. The peaceful lives at home of the Yokai are in jeopardy, are you ready for what is to come?"

We're not sure if we're ready, but we're in desperate need to snuggle some of the sweet, precious Yokais – just look at them!

You'll traverse through "lush forests to boundless wheat fields", collecting new Yokai like Pokémon as you go. But the journey won't be without strife, with the need to fight in order to survive inevitable. You'll also discover the intricacies of Yokai keeping as you learn about all the different "unique schools" that are waiting for you to take up their mantle in this merry fantasy RPG.

PC players shouldn't have long to wait before they can dive into this mystical world. However, no specific release date has been announced; all we know is that Yaoling: Mythical Journey is "coming soon". We genuinely can't wait. Make sure to wishlist the game on Steam so you know exactly when you can embark on this new adventure!
