Game Information

Available on:Nintendo 3DSMar 31, 2015

Developer: Marvelous Games

Publisher: Xseed Games

Genre: Simulation

STORY OF SEASONS is the beginning of a new chapter in the 'Bokujo Monogatari' series, a long-standing and top-selling farming/life simulation franchise. Though the series is reborn with a new name, it continues the well-loved traditions of customizable farms, animal care, marriage and child-rearing. After creating a customized character, players can live out a new life by cultivating their favorite fruits and vegetables while expanding and filling their farm with their choice of animals. Fans of past games in the series will love the many new additions on display here, including an enhanced variety of seeds, pets, and other ways to make their farms truly their own. But the major addition is the new theme of 'connectivity,' as trading with other countries will help grow the player's crop variety and wallet, as well as the prosperity of the entire town. Players can also connect locally via Wi-Fi to visit one another's farms and tend crops as a team, expanding both their harvests and their friendships.

Story of Seasons' kept me occupied for well over 30 hours, and even then I could have kept playing until the cows came home. It took awhile for the interesting options for running my farm and business to open up, but the mix of strategy and good old-fashioned simulation made it all worthwhile. It may not have the prestigious Harvest Moon name, but Story of Seasons is definitely the bees' knees.

For better and worse this is Harvest Moon in all but name, with a few useful new ideas but still the same old crop of problems.

The basic loop is fun for a while, but the repetition and slow payoff make it difficult to stay interested

Despite its nagging restrictions, Story of Seasons is an absorbing farming game with a wonderful sense of progression.
