Story of Seasons: Friends of Mineral Town announced for Nintendo Switch

5 July 2019 – by Jack Taylor

Marvelous is remaking the GBA classic Harvest Moon: Friends of Mineral Town for Nintendo Switch under the Story of Seasons name.

Originally released for the Game Boy Advance as Harvest Moon: Friends of Mineral Town, Marvelous has confirmed that it is remaking the game for Nintendo Switch.

Taking place in the titular Mineral Town, players will be able to care for animals, grow crops, and build relationships with their fellow villagers.

The long-standing series is called Bokujo Monogatari in Japan, but due to licensing issues, was previously known as Harvest Moon in the west before Marvelous took over publishing rights from Natsume; more confusingly, Natsume has since started its own unrelated series of games under the Harvest Moon banner.

The game will launch in Japan on 17 October, with a date for the western release still to be confirmed.
