Look, Hokko Life isn't the first game to try and replicate Animal Crossing's timeless life sim formula and it certainly won't be the last, but if you're a fan of Nintendo's blockbuster franchise and you've craving something very similar on PS4, this could be the game for you.
It's everything you'd expect: cute characters, anthropomorphic villagers, loads of ways to decorate your town, fishing, bug catching — it's all here. To be fair, Hokko Life seems to have a bit of farming as well, but you get the idea.
Anyway, it's coming to Sony's last-gen console on the 27th September. The game's been in early access on Steam for just over a year or so, and it's received mostly positive reviews up until this point.

That could be a game where I might buy the PS4 version in order to play it via remote play on my Vita. I'll keep an eye on it.
You weren’t kidding when you said it’s a clone, squint and you’d be hard pressed to tell the difference sometimes. Definitely on my radar.
Very rare a "clone" looks better than the original, but this is one of those clones.
Hopefully has no performance issues
Holy crap like.. it looks like the same engine but without the shine effect. Like everything is “matte.”
Then you have the animations which are really very similar.
It honestly looks really fun and we’ll out-together but as someone who’s biased, I’ll be constantly comparing the two to the point where I wouldn’t even enjoy it. It’s like listening to a cover band and then just wanting to play the original.
Does it have the tedious crafting of the latest animal crossing, if not I'm not interested
Gives me a harvest moon vibe and I like the approach of animal crossing too, I'll keep it on my radar but I just hope the investment is not to taxing, I don't want to be bait and switched into a game that is going to lock me into 100s of hours with no base, I've had enough of that tbh
@dschons yes, it has PS4 version... It's not available on the UK PSN store to follow yet, so I have to wait just like pac-man world remake which is also not on the PSN uk store to follow either 😤😤
Question : Is Hokko Life something you'd try?
Me : YES, Definitely! 😃
Have had it on PC now for about a year and the daughter loves it. She in fact loves it more than Animal Crossing which she was mildly obsessed with.
No interest in life sim games, but I know some friends that will prob try it out.
