Merchant Simulation Mineko’s Night Market Release Will “Take A Bit Longer Than Originally Planned”

It seems that the adventure merchant simulation game, Mineko’s Night Market, won’t be releasing anytime soon.

According to a Meowza Games, Mineko’s Night Market release date will be pushed back further. Previously revealed during the first Nindies Direct, the adventure simulation game is planned to arrive early 2019. That would not be the case any longer as the game’s development is now taking a bit longer than originally planned.

Mineko’s Night Market will be coming first onto Nintendo Switch, featuring gameplay mechanics such as haggling, sewing, raising a cat, and so on.

Here’s an overview of the game:

Mineko’s Night Market is a narrative-driven adventure/merchant simulation game about crafting crafts, eating eats, and… catting cats.

You play as Mineko, a curious girl who has just arrived at her new home on a struggling superstitious Japanese-inspired island at the base of Mount Fugu. The locals on the island worship the Sun Cat, Abe. What was always thought to be a long-told myth has the town puzzled, as sightings of Abe have begun to surface among the residents of the island in recent days.

Discover the secrets behind the town while managing your daily activities, completing various jobs, ven-turing on whimsical quests, and crafting peculiar items in preparation for the weekly Night Market!

Mineko’s Night Market is a game that celebrates Japanese culture while introducing a heartwarming story about friendship, tradition, and many, many cats.

Key Features:

  • 20+ hours of story-based gameplay that is open-ended for infinite replayability
  • Craft peculiar items with the resources you find around the world through a variety of work-bench mini-games
  • Befriend and barter with the 80+ townsfolk at the weekly Night Market to sell almost anything you make and find
  • Play and compete in a variety of Night Market games like cat racing, octopus pull, and sumo-suit wrestling
