A brand new, 50-minute gameplay video of Story of Seasons: Friends of Mineral Town has been published today. The video showcases a decent chunk of the first hour or so of what players will do when they start their new lives in the game. The title launches on July 10 in Europe and July 14 in North America.
The video gives us a really great look at the visual style of Story of Seasons: Friends of Mineral Town. Sure, the in-game graphics don’t look quite as polished as those of Animal Crossing: New Horizons. But even so, the character portraits do show beautifully painted versions of each NPC.
As you’d expect, you start your Story of Seasons adventure by moving to the country and picking up a dilapidated farm that your grandfather used to own. Once you get your chores out of the way, you’ll meet the locals. These offer some rather strange advice, such as having a sit down if your face goes blue from exertion. Right from the word go, you can begin planting seeds and growing crops, a core part of the game. But it’s also important to explore the map and meet everyone.
Considering that Story of Seasons is mostly about allowing you to live out your dreams of farming, Friends of Mineral Town has a colossal map. The story will no doubt see you help each character in the town with their problems. Who knows? Maybe you’ll even save the place from destruction.
