The popular gaming outlet Famitsu announced that Marvelous is currently working on catering another gem to the Story of Seasons… – Harvest Moon community. A remake of the much beloved Harvest Moon Friends of Mineral Town is coming to Nintendo Switch this year.
The game was first released in 2003 and quickly became one of the best selling gameboy games of its time. While not many details were revealed about the upcoming remake, Famitsu promised more information on the title in the next magazine.
This is exciting news for all old school Harvest Moon fans, for the ones who don’t know the name of the franchise has since changed to Story of Seasons and since Natsume still owns the rights to the series ( Harvest Moon ) it will most likely be released under the name Story of Seasons once the game releases in the West.
