NIS America has announced that Birthdays the Beginning, Harvest Moon creator Mr. Yasuhiro Wada’s new game, will be coming to North America, Europe, and AU/NZ in early 2017.

Available as both a physical and digital release on PlayStation 4 and Steam (Windows), Birthdays the Beginning is a “new sandbox game in which players create cube-shaped worlds that give rise to diverse and unique lifeforms. With careful experimentation, players can shape the geography and alter the temperature of each world to create the conditions for life and witness the birth of an entire ecosystem.”

Further, the game will contain in-game text in English, French, Italian, German, and Spanish.

Key features of Birthdays the Beginning include:

  • A World All Your Own — Create any world you can imagine! From staggering mountains and sprawling forests to a deep sea dotted with islands, there’s no limit to your creations.
  • Life from the Beginning — Discover the history of everything as you foster life of all shapes and sizes — from single-celled organisms to complex multicellular life, including plants, mammals, dinosaurs, and more!
  • Cultivate Your Imagination — Imagine, Experiment, Create! Shape your planet and decide how plant and animal life evolves. No two planets will ever be truly alike.

More information about Birthdays the Beginning will be released over the next few months.
