A faithful recreation, but why go back when Stardew has since perfected the genre?

Story of Seasons: Friends of Mineral Town's cutesy aesthetic is plagued with shallow and tedious gameplay.

Despite its age, simplicity, and lack of embellishments, Story of Seasons: Friends of Mineral Town proves the Bokujō Monogatari franchise has been on the money since the very beginning. Its content may feel a little sparse compared to its successors and competitors, but I can see myself returning to these lands long after the next harvest moon.

‎We return to Mineral Town with a great facelift that bets on the simplicity of mechanics and simplicity in its menus and staging. We will find a very classic adventure in the style of Harvest Moon, where we get lost for days harvesting and improving our farm, but it is somewhat decaffeinated and empty in these times, being a very brief option in terms of ambition.‎

Story of Seasons Friends of Mineral Town is a wonderful return to the past that gives a good facelift to the original Game Boy Advance game. Despite not taking risks, its formula is very successful and delighted to all lovers of farm simulators, management and RPGs.

Story of Seasons: Friends of Mineral Town takes a while to reveal its charms. The pace may put players not familiar with the rhythm of farming and relationship sims off, but for those invested they will be treated to a lovely, relaxing slice of idyllic rural life.

Story of Seasons: Friends of Mineral Town is simple and charming, but beneath the rather basic gameplay loop hides some surprisingly deep secrets. It brings back elements of farming games past, including marriage rivals and transient characters, while providing some major quality of life updates as well as a more freedom, such as limited character customization and a truly bizarre variety of farmyard pets. It's a cozy, welcoming little village, sure to charm any farming fan.
