XSEED Games, the independent-minded console publishing brand of Marvelous USA, Inc., today shared a new trailer for STORY OF SEASONS welcoming players to life in Oak Tree Town. STORY OF SEASONS will be released exclusively for the Nintendo 3DS in retail stores and digitally through the Nintendo eShop. GameStop, Amazon.com, EB Games and other participating retailers will be offering special Angora rabbit “pocket plushie” as a pre-order bonus that will be available for pickup together with the game, but only while supplies last. More details regarding the launch timing and pricing will be revealed shortly.
STORY OF SEASONS is the beginning of a new chapter in the ‘Bokujo Monogatari’ series, a long-standing and top-selling farming/life simulation franchise. Though the series is reborn with a new name, it continues the well-loved traditions of customizable farms, animal care, and relationship building in the hopes of getting married and starting a family. After creating a customized character, players can live out a new life by cultivating their favorite fruits and vegetables while expanding and filling their farm with their choice of animals. Fans of past games in the series will love the many new additions on display here, including an enhanced variety of seeds, pets, and other ways to make their farms truly their own. But the major addition is the new theme of ‘connectivity,’ as trading with other countries will help grow the player’s crop variety and wallet, as well as the prosperity of the entire town. Players can also connect locally via WiFi to visit one another’s farms and tend crops as a team, expanding both their harvests and their friendships.
Developed in Japan by Marvelous Inc., STORY OF SEASONS will be published in North America by XSEED Games exclusively for Nintendo 3DS. This game has been rated “E10+” for Everyone ages 10 and up by the ESRB with the descriptors Alcohol Reference, Mild Suggestive Themes and Violent References.
