Story of Seasons: Friends of Mineral Town

released on Oct 17, 2019

A remake combining the content of the Game Boy Advance games, Harvest Moon: Friends of Mineral Town and Harvest Moon: More Friends of Mineral Town, for the Nintendo Switch.

The series' international name was changed to Story of Seasons due to Natsume keeping the rights to the Harvest Moon title when Marvelous began publishing through their own companies, XSEED Games, instead.

I honestly can't tell if I'm judging this game too early and harshly, or if it really is as simplistic and dull as it seems. I've spent at least ten hours on it, but there just doesn't seem to be much game there. You have a tiny farm that's really effectively only a crops field, as well as a couple of extra screens that are pretty boring, and all you do is boring or poorly balanced. Watering crops costs way, way too much stamina, doing a daily visit to the town to talk to everyone takes way too long and everyone has way too few lines (but must be done for relationship-growing), your worker elves are really slow, crops take forever to grow which leaves you broke and with little to do most days until it's crop time and you get a bunch of money at once. Fishing is too passive and slow. The dungeon is super boring and samey and they have to be kidding with that trophy for reaching floor 100. Worst of all is I think cooking utensils are unlocked at random, or maybe I bought the stove too early, because I can't cook anything because the store won't sell me a knife, but it did randomly sell me a pot so now I guess I can boil things. I don't know, I could go on, but really, I think more or less everything here more or less sucks. I guess because these games are 15+ years old, but this is a remake and this game just doesn't cut it in today's market. The other PS4 one is getting a shot too, but I'm really hoping that it's a major improvement on this overly simplistic game.

Ótimo remake do Harvest Moon Back to Nature/Friends of Mineral Town ps1/psp.
Atualizaram mecânicas defasadas, e o gráfico, mesmo simples é bem charmoso. Recomendo para todos os fãs antigos de HM e para novos também que jogaram Stardew Valley.

A classic remake of a game from a iconic series from natsume. Pure nostalgia.
