Little Dragons Cafe
This feels like a golden age 3DS game. I hope patches address the Switch version because portable play definitely works best for these kinds of games. The PS4 version based on our time with it is a lot better in terms of visuals, performance, and load times
Even with its technical flaws and progression structure problems, I still can't bring myself to dislike Little Dragons Café. When Little Dragons Café hits its stride mid-game, it is indeed a beautiful, relaxing, and wholesome experience that I would recommend to those looking for a more laid back title to cleanse their palette before this busy fall season. That being said, enough problems did persist to still make it a tad disappointing. Little Dragons Café may be worth waiting on until some technical issues are fixed and the price drops if the incentive of raising a dragon isn't enough for you.
From exploring different areas to serving customers, there's always something to do in Little Dragons Cafe. The Nintendo Switch is also the perfect platform for the game, letting you pick up and play after a long day. While it definitely isn't Harvest Moon or Stardew Valley, Little Dragons Cafe manages to stand on its own and offer a simple, charming experience that's easy to love in spite of the technical issues.
Little Dragons Café is an endearing feast for the eyes – and extremely unique in its concept – but can lose some of its charm after too much time spent waiting on technical issues like load times. Hopefully, some of these problems can be fixed with a future patch or update. Still, Yasuhiro Wada is the master of turning a simple game into a living, breathing story – and you can expect to experience that same level of care and detail in his latest adventure. It feels as if he is inventing a brand new genre of game all over again – just as he did with Harvest Moon. For those who seek a laid-back experience on the Nintendo Switch, this game will lovingly fill the void, even if it's a little rough around the edges.
Little Dragons Café is the newest, cute, little game from Harvest Moon creator Yasuhiro Wada and Aksys Games that brings a fun, laid-back gaming experience. Though, it is a little rough at times.

Yasuhiro Wada shows his new creation with this easy game that everyone in the house can afford to play. We expected much more from the Harvest Moon and Rune Factory creator, and at least we wanted something more of management in a game that is supposed to let us manage our own cafe. But we have a dragon.

Little Dragons Cafe is an incredibly unique, genre-blending experience that suffers from performance issues and some overall rocky gameplay.
A charming game with gorgeous visuals that suffers from technical hurdles and pacing issues. Keeping a pet dragon companion is the saving grace for Little Dragons Café,
The impression I got is that the game was trying too hard to do too many things, and it didn't end up being stellar at any of them. The plot and progression speed weren't exciting enough for me to not want to put the game down. That being said, I will go back to this game for short and infrequent intervals when I am in the right mood for it.
