Yonder is set on the vast island of Gemea, a lush frontier with eight distinct environments ranging from tropical beaches to snow-capped summits. Each location has its own flora and fauna, along with changing seasons and a day-night cycle. Gemea, once a paradise, still maintains the appearance of one, yet an evil murk has enshrouded the land and its people in despair.

As the hero you will explore Gemea, uncovering the island's secrets and the mysteries within yourself as you embark on a journey of self-discovery. On a quest to become the island’s champion, you join forces with Sprites, creatures who are the only thing capable of dispersing the murk, to save Gemea and its people.

The towns of Gemea are filled with kind-hearted residents who have faced many difficulties since the murk arrived. By contributing to the island through farming, crafting, cooking, fishing and brewing, relationships can be built with the locals, who offer everything from resources to a new farm as rewards.

At the heart of Yonder, is a game that delivers a sense of discovery, wrapped in a familiar yet unique adventure.

Yonder: The Cloud Catcher Chronicles (Nintendo Switch) Review via Cubed3

Despite some hiccups in performance that are perfectly understandable given the scope, limited budget, and the engine used, Yonder: The Cloud Catcher Chronicles in its Nintendo Switch incarnation retains all of its charm. It is not a Triple-A product, and yet what it manages to achieve is a wonder to behold.

Review: Yonder: The Cloud Catcher Chronicles (Nintendo Switch) via Digitally Downloaded

This is a game which taught me to love the feeling of being lost, and I'm sure it's one I will return to for a long time.

Yonder: The Cloud Catcher Chronicles provides you with a wonderfully pretty world to experience, and its simple narrative will encourage you to peacefully explore the island at your own pace. However, the multiple mechanics seemed unnecessary and the story was underutilised as a way to move the game forward. However, if you like Pokémon, Stardew Valley and Breath of the Wild and want a ‘lite’ version of all those combined - this sweet adventure may just be perfect for you.

Yonder: The Cloud Catcher Chronicles (Switch) Review via NintendoWorldReport

It does a fantastic job of making a captivating atmosphere that's both fun to explore and filled with things to do. There are frame rate issues and the lack of diversity among quests is a bit disappointing, but the jaw dropping visuals and superb audio design left me pining for more. While it certainly won't be everyone's cup of tea, those looking for a laidback trip through a stunning world, look no further.

Despite hearing that there's no combat and the systems are a bit shallow, I'm super excited to give this a shot. I think this is something that the wife will enjoy as well!

I sunk a bunch of hours into this on the PS4, I'll gladly double dip to play this whenever and wherever on the Switch.

@rlcooper: It doesn't look there is combat, no. I've read it's like Harvest Moon in that way. That's not necessarily a deal-breaker for me. How about you?

This game looks interesting, but no combat at all?

I remember when Breath of the Wild came out some Nintendo haters said "who cares, we have Yonder !! Is much better with a better graphic !11!1!".

Almost one year later, Breath of the Wild is the GOTY, an universal acclaimed maasterpiece..... and now we have Yonder too.
Ergo : The Switch have all the best games now ?

This looks like the type of game I like, also it would have a physical release as I've seen. Now I'm hesitant between picking this or My time at Portia, whenever they come out.

Remember being interested in this when I first heard of it, looks very interesting. Looking forward to its release.

I'm not going to lie, halfway through the trailer for this game, I knew I would pick it up. I love the look, concept, everything. Can't wait to see more.
