While Natsume is working on Harvest Moon: The Lost Valley, Marvelous AQL released Story of Seasons, basically Harvest Moon under a new name. It’s currently released in Japan with no release date in North America as of right now. There’s a range of customization that you can engage in, and plenty of festicals for you to do. Farming looks to be a lot easier too! Instead of tending to individual crops, it seems that you can water and harvest 9 crops at a time. It seems that there are a lot of animals that you can have on the farm as well; the trailer shows monkeys, llamas/alpacas, and angora rabbits (so excited!)! You guys can watch the Japanese trailer here if you want to see more gameplay.
Here’s two of the 6 male bachelors. Raeger (left) is a restaurant chef and Nadi (right) is a landscape designer. I’m not sure about their personalities yet, but I’m super excited to play the game when it comes out here.
