Maple Powered Games has announced Monster Harvest, coming to Xbox One on June 3, and it looks like the Stardew Valley and Pokémon crossover we never knew we wanted.

As with many farming sims, you'll grow your own crops and build your settlement - but there's a catch. The hook is that your crops mutate into a variety of monsters by using mysterious slimes, which you can then use to take out into the world and battle. Its art style is simply charming too, giving the impression of a sprite filled pop-up book.

We're intrigued!

"Get ready to set out on an adventure of a lifetime as you start a new life in Planimal Point. Develop your own farm, build, and customise your own house, craft your own furniture, make some delicious jams and mutate your crops to create loyal and fierce companions you can take into battle!"

It definitely looks to be a unique take on the premise and we absolute want in. It seems to blend a fair few games and genres together, but its identity is striking and we can't wait to learn more about this game. Roll on June 3!
