Return to PopoloCrois is a new entry in both the PopoloCrois franchise of fairytale-themed RPGs and the wildly successful Bokujo Monogatari farming and life simulation series, now known as STORY OF SEASONS in the West. It features classically-styled turn-based combat, and towns full of lively and interesting NPCs who contribute to a heartwarming narrative that both series veterans and newcomers alike can enjoy. Ample farming and life simulation elements include crop raising, bug-catching, rock quarrying, item synthesis and more round out the experience.
