UPDATE: Harvestella Reveals Summer Seaside Town Shatolla; New Produce, Cuisine, Jobs, Screenshots & Renders

Square Enix has shared extensive new details regarding their upcoming action RPG farming simulator, Harvestella. First, the Summer seaside town of Shatolla has been revealed, where many residents support their lifestyles by fishing. A rowdy tavern is located in the town’s center, a prime spot for anglers to bond after a tough work day.

However, ever since the Seaslight negatively altered, enormous bubbles began spawning on the nearby seas, called the Summer Bulla. Further, rumors pertaining to a supposed sea witch named Lorelei begin to spread, stating that her voice can somehow drag ships down to the ocean’s depths.

On an off-handed note, the Coral Shrine is a dungeon-like area players will find themselves traversing during their time here.
