The split team of the original beloved Harvest Moon game series have both announced their upcoming Harvest Moon and Story of Seasons games. Here are brief overviews of the exciting new releases.
Harvest Moon: One World
Harvest Moon: One World, created by Natsume Inc and Rising Star Games, has recently been announced to arrive on the Switch sometime in Autumn of this year. The game will be the first of the Harvest Moon entries to feature an all-new engine and graphics, alongside new game-play mechanics to freshen up the Harvest Moon formula. With new characters exclusive to the game, familiar faces will also be making a return. The title will provide more exploration than previous Harvest Moon games, with locations varying from snowy mountains to sunny beaches. No longer does your farm and town consist as the single location of the game, but travelling a whole world will be available for gamers. There will be optional challenges for players to venture into these new and wide locations on a quest to find ingredients and items no longer known to man but only mentioned in an old book.
More information and a release date are yet to be announced.
Story of Seasons – Friends of Mineral Town
Story of Seasons – Friends of Mineral Town, developed by Marvelous, is set to release on July 10th. The game is a remaster of one of the series’ most beloved titles originally an exclusive Game Boy Advance game of 2003. The remaster retains its lovable characters, in which same-sex marriage has been added as a remaster feature. Fans will enjoy such expanded content, from fishing, additional dialogue, post-game content, and animal friendship events. And new players can now explore the appealing Mineral Town with upgraded graphics. Rebuild your grandfather’s farm, with over 20 crop varieties, and livestock of your choosing. As seasons change and relationships develop, become a part of the iconic Mineral Town and enjoy your stay, no matter how short or long it is.
You can pre-order the game on Amazon for £42.99.
Story of Seasons – Friends of Mineral Town may easily overshadow the release of Harvest Moon: One World, but such additions to the farming simulator genre are greatly appreciated for the Switch!
