Dragons make everything better, and that's no exception when it comes to Yasuhiro Wada's latest project in his pedigree of slice-of-life simulation video games from Harvest Moon to Story of Seasons. While disparate footage from GDC 2018 and screenshots of Little Dragons Café have been released slowly, official gameplay footage has emerged from its cave with a new trailer showcasing the major features of this vibrant-looking title that looks like it came straight out of a coloring book.

Two siblings are tasked with managing their mother's café shop since she's fallen into a deep sleep, but a wizard appears telling them that they can save her if they rear a baby dragon that he gives them. Not only must they feed and care the dragon around their island, but also fret about gathering ingredients and executing recipes for a diverse set of customers. Exploration and cute, simple mini-games are spread throughout the experience as you test your cooking and multitasking prowess. 

You can read extensive impressions and check out all sorts of screenshots from Elise Favis' hands-on session with Little Dragons Café, which is set to be released for the PlayStation 4 and Switch this summer.
