Raise, Care for, Collect, and Play with Gesshizu
Gesshizu: Gajigaji Nakama wo Sodateyou is a creature-raising game where the goal is to raise creatures called Gesshizu that hatch from eggs, clear the missions in the “Challenge Album,” and complete the “Gesshizu Encyclopedia.”
—Choose the egg you want to hatch and raise.
—Take photographs to clear the missions in the Challenge Album.
—Raise lots of Gesshizu and register rare types in the Encyclopedia.
Take Care of Baby Gesshizu and they Will Grow into All Sorts of Adults
Raise the baby Gesshizu that hatches from the egg into adulthood. Depending on its environment (the room) and the types of food you feed it, it will take on various colors and shapes when it becomes an adult.
—Give the baby Gesshizu food and contact.
—If its friendship level increases…
—The baby Gesshizu will grow into an adult.
Take Photographs of Gesshizu in their Room
Gesshizu can live together in a room with other Gesshizu. (One room can house four Gesshizu, and you can have up to three rooms.) The Gesshizu will get along and play with each other, and with the furniture you placed.
—Everyone seems to be having fun and talking.
—The Gesshizu will make various requests, such as for food when they become hungry.
—The Gesshizu will play on the furniture you placed in the room.
Make Friends with the Gesshizu You Raise
By giving Gesshizu their favorite food, or having contact with them, their “Friendship Level” will increase. As its Friendship Level increases, a Gesshizu’s movements will become more energetic in mini-games.
—A Gesshizu will become happy if you give them their favorite food.
—If you rub and lull them to sleep, their Friendship Level will increase.
—Tickling them will also grow your bond.
Play Mini-Games with Your Gesshizu
There are five mini-games you can play with the Gesshizu you raise. All mini-games support up to four-player local multiplayer with one Joy-Con per player, as well as local wireless play between four Switch units.
—Get to the goal in this “Red Light Green Light”-like mini-game.
—Dig in the spots where the Gesshizu tremble and shake to get tasty acorns.
—Collect fruits and bring them back to the box.
Collection and Customization Elements
You can customize the wall and floor patterns of the rooms you raise your Gesshizu, as well as place furniture. Since the environment affects the color and form that a baby Gesshizu will take when it becomes an adult, you should create various rooms in hopes of getting never before seen, rare Gesshizu.
—A room themed after grasslands.
—A room themed after a pretty, fall-colored forest.
—A fairy-tale-like room.
