XSEED Games to Release Story of Seasons: Friends of Mineral Town Game for Switch in N. America (Update)
posted on by Crystalyn Hodgkins
XSEED Games announced on Thursday that it will release Marvelous' Story of Seasons: Friends of Mineral Town (Bokujō Monogatari: Saikai no Mineral Town) game for Nintendo Switch in North America.
The game is a full remake of the Harvest Moon: Friends of Mineral Town and Harvest Moon: More Friends of Mineral Town Game Boy Advance games. The game will ship in Japan on October 17 for the Nintendo Switch.
Natsume published most of the previous games in the franchise under the umbrella title of Harvest Moon in North America. However, since XSEED Games — Marvelous AQL's own subsidiary — published the Bokujō Monogatari: Tsunagaru Shin Tenchi game in North America in March 2015, it cannot use Natsume's Harvest Moon title. XSEED most recently released Story of Seasons: Trio of Towns (Bokujō Monogatari: Mitsu no Sato no Taisetsu na Tomodachi) for the Nintendo 3DS in February 2017.
Bandai Namco Entertainment will release the Doraemon: Story of Seasons (Doraemon: Nobita no Bokujō Monogatari) crossover game for the Switch and PC via Steam in the Americas this fall. The game will also launch in Europe and Southeast Asia in fall. The game launched in Japan for the Switch on June 13.
Update: Marvelous Europe also announced on Friday that it will release the game in Europe and Australia.
