  • Enjoyed to play Story of Seasons: Friends of Mineral Town in 2003.

    When it will be released in Europe? End of 2020?
    I’m so looking forward to play it again! Will the game include French?


  • i know it’s worth to wait, but at least, please let me know the release date of English version soon. Thank you so much.

  • does anybody know if an original story of seasons game is being made? I remember when the switch was first announced, the story of seasons logo was shown with developing games line. Also, can FoMT drop already its going to be a whole year since its been announced.

  • Oh dear! Why is the localization taking so long? Hopefully you guys aren’t deleting same-sex marriage as the speculations said.

    It’s a remake, a game supposedly primarily aiming those who’ve played the GBA entries (Boy and Girl versions) — please stay true to the game’s intended crowd and not the soccer parents! :(

    Please don’t delete anything, it’s gonna be unfair to international players.
