I choose Oob!

Subscribe to Nintendo Life on YouTube

have you ever wanted to have a dance-off with your Pokémon? How about rearing a weird and wonderful farm? Or pop a little hat on your Piplup? Well, Glumberland’s Ooblets will let you do all of that and more.

Inspired by the Pokémon series with a big dollop of Harvest Moon’s farming and town management, this weird and adorable has been in Early Access since 2020, and it’s finally ready to jump out of it this summer — and it’s coming to Switch! In Ooblets, you’ll get to raise a quirky menagerie of unusual, pastel-coloured creatures and forge relationships with the townsfolk to help solve the mystery of Oob!

All of the content released in Early Access will be playable on Switch from day one, but Glumberland has also revealed that more new locations, quests, and a proper conclusion to the game’s community-based story will also be ready and waiting when the game launches. The residents of Badgetown are odd, the ooblets are odd, and the crops are odd too!

Let’s find out what oddities Glumberland will be throwing at us, which it revealed in a press release for the game, along with a bunch of pun-filled location names:

About Ooblets

12. (and you can pet the ooblets)

We don’t have an exact release date for Ooblets just yet, but we’re going to make room in our schedule for when it drops this summer. You can find out more about the game over on its official website.
