XSEED Games has announced that Story of Seasons: Friends of Mineral Town, the expanded remake of the popular Game Boy Advance farming/life simulation title in 2003, will launch for Nintendo Switch on July 14 in North America.
The game is currently available for pre-purchase at the XSEED Games Store and participating retailers for $49.99. All retail pre-purchases from the XSEED Games Store will include a Strawberry Hanako pocket plushie based on the in-game Strawberry Cow animal. The pocket plushie is also being offered by participating retailers while supplies last.
The digital pre-purchase on the Nintendo eShop will be available at a later date and support pre-loading. All digital pre-purchases will include a Cow Costume DLC as an early bird bonus, which will also be available for purchase separately at launch for $1.99.
Summoned by Mayor Thomas to visit the farm once owned by their late grandfather, a young city-slicked returns to Mineral Town to find the once lush farmland has fallen into disrepair. Memories of idyllic summers spent in Mineral Town come rushing back and they immediately pick up their tools, vowing to restore the fields to their former glory.
In their new hometown, they’ll tend the land and become part of the bustling rural community. Along the way to becoming a world class farmer, they’ll befriend townsfolk and, perhaps, even find romance.
Story of Seasons: Friends of Mineral Town is a complete remake, re-envisioning the charming and mysterious world of Mineral Town with updated gameplay, graphics, and characters. Core features of the Story of Seasons series also make their return, including multi-floor mining and horse racing.
