XSEED Games, the console publishing brand of Marvellous USA, the publisher who brought you games such as Akiba’s Trip: Undead and Undressed, Rune Factory 4 and Ys: Memories of Celceta, have today released a new trailer and screen shots of their upcoming title Story of Seasons.
Story of Seasons, which is exclusive to the Nintendo 3DS, is the beginning of a new chapter in the Bokuko Monogatari series. Which is a very popular farming/life simulation game, which you may recognise more if I refer to it as Harvest Moon.
Story of Seasons keeps true to its roots by continuing traditional aspects of the game such as customisable farms, animal care, and relationship building. However, the game will include new additions upon previous iterations, including an expanded variety of seeds, pets and other ways to make your farm unique.
The biggest addition, however, is the new theme of ‘connectivity’. This will allow you to connect locally, via WiFi, and visit your friend’s farms and tend to crops as a team, which will increase your harvests.
The game is in development in Japan by Marvellous, with more details on a launch date and pricing coming soon.
