Story of Seasons: Friends of Mineral Town, the full remake of Harvest Moon: Friends of Mineral Town, is set to mark the series’ debut on Nintendo Switch when it releases in Japan on October 17 (with North America and Europe to follow at a later date). With less than two months to release, developer Marvelous has put out a new trailer to get the hype train rolling.
The trailer is nearly three minutes long, and while it does feature some live actors, it also shows off an exciting amount of gameplay.
In addition to the trailer, western publisher XSEED has provided a bit more info on the game:
The long-awaited return to one of the most beloved entries in the original farm/life simulation franchise, known in Japan as Bokujo Monogatari, is also the first mainline title in the series to be released for the Nintendo Switch platform.
Originally released for the Nintendo Game Boy Advance in 2003, Story of Seasons: Friends of Mineral Town is a complete remake that will let series fans revisit the charming world of Mineral Town, while also introducing it to a new generation of farmers. In this peaceful setting, players will grow crops, take care of animals, and build relationships with villagers.
Story of Seasons: Friends of Mineral Town looks very promising, and fans of the original Harvest Moon titles should certainly keep their eyes on this remake.
