Jackie and Daria, a hyena and bat, are a duo unlike any of the other spirits, and are found on a completely new island in the game's overworld. The island starts out looking dilapidated and dreary, and players are tasked with bringing the island back to life, while learning about Jackie and Daria's past. The Jackie and Daria update is set to release on December 13, 2021 on Nintendo Switch and all other platforms. This final update, like the Lily and Beverly updates, is free to anyone who has purchased the game.
Spiritfarer is a game that deals with the concept of death and loss in a magnificent way. The game combines the calming gameplay loop of crafting and relationship building with the hard-hitting questions about life and what it means. For anyone who enjoys life simulation games, this is a must-buy.
