Also known as Stardew Valley 3D, it’s looking like a great new entry in the Story of Seasons series.

So I made a thread before anyone else could. 😀

Discuss about it here.

This one looks a little more reminiscent of Stardew Valley. I'd say this was the highlight of the direct for me, it looks like it'll be a really solid entry. I'm excited for the sprinklers, was probably my favourite part of Stardew Valley.

This looks a whole lot more impressive than Harvest Moon: One World. Ugh, I still have Doraemon: Story of Seasons and Rune Factory 4 on my backlog. And I'm waiting for HM: Friends of Mineral Town to go on deep discount. Rune Factory 5 is coming as well.

Times are great for sim-life fans.

I plan to give both games a try.

The last few non-remake Story of Seasons games have been a bit disappointing for me, but this one looks right up my alley from what they showed! Can’t wait to hear more information.

I am looking forward to this one (still playing mineral town... but it wasn’t the remake I wanted... I wanted either AWL or Tree of Tranquility to be redone). The shots of the rando animals hiding in the woods look great. Aside from the sprinklers I don’t get a Stardew Valley vibe. Personally I miss the auto feed and auto milking machines from earlier bokumono games.

Hope they have dark skin tones and same sex marriage.

Personally, the idea of taming a place overtaken by nature and having a customizable tile-based environment, etc. reminds me a lot of of Stardew Valley and even Harvest Moon: The Lost Valley.

And both are games I greatly enjoyed.

On the subject of same sex marriage, I think going back on that would be bad for their image.

@Eel the customization reminds me of HM:a new beginning. Reclaiming the land is something they have touched on before.

Since it’s just a best friend system in Japan they can easily walk back same sex marriage. I’m hoping not but I try not to get hopeful until a statement is issued.

Well their previous games with customizable environments had grids with big squares and things tended to be small... In an oversized way.

This looks like a much more traditional grid, like what you'd get in a 2D tile-based game. The fields with crops in particular give me strong Natsume vibes.

Do keep in mind that I do not view that as a negative, and I'm not trying to imply anything bad by comparing it to games made by Natsume.

I think it's a nice change.

I'm also happy that this one uses the good old "bubble" cow. It's my favorite design.

I do hope they figure out the framerate when there are a lot of sprinklers on screen. I don’t usually care about framerate in non action games but it really dropped in that trailer.

That being said it looks like you can get multiple ores when hitting one mining spot.

Hopefully they only animate once in the morning. In the case they do get laggy.

I don't know, for some reason I'm not digging it right now. I LOVE what they just did with Friends of Mineral Town, but I really don't like these graphics for some reason. I guess I just don't like when these games try to go more realistic.

Realistic is not a word I'd use to describe these graphics

@Magician Don't know if this is the case near you, but Best Buy has FoMT on sale for $24.99 right now.

Luckily for me, Friends of Mineral Town was already very cheap on launch in my eShop. Like, around US$30.

It was an easy prepurchase.

Yup, I grabbed a copy.

I appreciate that though, thank you.

The game was rated CERO A which means NO same gender marriage as the game is for All ages.
Well... I have to disguise again as Girl player to find my future husband.
I saw the handsome one just now. 😉

Over at Fogu they're saying that the 'best friend ceremony' is in the game.
