Marvelous Europe are delighted to announce today that STORY OF SEASONS: Friends of Mineral Town is confirmed for release in Europe and Australia on the Nintendo Switch.

The long-awaited return to one of the most beloved entries in the original farm/life simulation franchise, known in Japan as Bokujo Monogatari, is also the first mainline title in the series to be released for the Nintendo Switch platform. 

Originally released for the Nintendo Game Boy Advance in 2003, STORY OF SEASONS: Friends of Mineral Town is a complete remake that will let series fans revisit the charming world of Mineral Town, while also introducing it to a new generation of farmers.

STORY OF SEASONS: Friends of Mineral Town will be published by Marvelous Europe Limited in Europe and Australia on Nintendo Switch, and will be published for release in Japan by Marvelous Inc and for release in North America by XSEED Games. The game will launch in Japan on 17th October 2019, while the European and North American launch date will be confirmed at a later time.

  • then you can wait a long time
    if we are unlucky
    we only get this game in
    the summer
    or even later
    oh well, meanwhile I’m going
    enjoy animal crossing
    new horizons in March
    that’s one thing that’s for sure!

  • I really need this game in my life!! Loved the original so much and I can’t wait to relive it on the Switch (and marry Cliff again) :)

    Please give us a European release date soon!

  • I’d like to know the release date and if French language is available!

  • that’s because story of seasons
    still in development
    and that Marvelous is now focused on rune factory 4
    that’s what they told me in an email
    I had emailed marvelous and this is what they wrote.

    I really hope they will give a release date as soon as possible

  • If the reason its taking so long is because they are getting rid of the same sex marriage then I’m going to be pretty sad :(

    I’m not really into the whole same sex marriage but its something i would enjoy playing around with (adds replay value to the game) Also it would just be nice to have the game as it was in the initial release without any changes to be disappointed about.
