Despite there now being a rather saturated farming simulation game market, Story of Seasons: Friends of Mineral Town still manages to earn a place amongst popular games such as Stardew Valley and My Time at Portia. In my personal opinion, it even manages to surpass such games in certain ways due to it’s adorable simplicity. The game features a charming close knit town, harvest sprites with unique personalities, and is unburdened with too many anxiety-provoking features. ( MORE INFO HERE )
The game combines the best from an RPG game and mixes the formula with a crafting and building game.

The original title was released for the Nintendo Wii in 2006, and had a mostly warm reception. Some criticized the game for having somewhat difficult controls, given that the title was run with the Wii’s motion controls, and could be difficult to use when trying to play a game that can require some real precision at time. Luckily, the new title will have control sets optimized for each console. Not having to deal with motion controls will be a big plus here!
The new trailer gives us a look at what exactly we are headed into with Banana Blitz HD. You can tell right away that the update to the graphics was a major focal point for this remake, which makes total sense since the title was only changed by the letters HD. Aside from the graphics, SMB: Banana Blitz HD will feature 100 main levels and 10 multiplayer mini-games.
The new title will also feature online leaderboards, which is something totally new to the Super Monkey Ball Series. Banana Blitz HD will be releasing for PS4, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch and later for PC.
