The Famitsu.com website revealed on Tuesday that Marvelous is developing Bokujō Monogatari: Saikai no Mineral Town (Story of Seasons: Reunion at Mineral Town), a full remake of the Harvest Moon: Friends of Mineral Town and Harvest Moon: More Friends of Mineral Town Game Boy Advance games. The game will ship in Japan on October 17 for the Nintendo Switch.
This week's issue of Gzbrain Inc.'s Weekly Famitsu magazine will reveal more information on the game on Thursday.
Natsume published most of the previous games in the franchise under the umbrella title of Harvest Moon in North America. However, since XSEED Games — Marvelous AQL's own subsidiary — published the Bokujō Monogatari: Tsunagaru Shin Tenchi game in North America in March 2015, it cannot use Natsume's Harvest Moon title. XSEED most recently released Story of Seasons: Trio of Towns (Bokujō Monogatari: Mitsu no Sato no Taisetsu na Tomodachi) for the Nintendo 3DS in February 2017.
Bandai Namco Entertainment will release the Doraemon: Story of Seasons (Doraemon: Nobita no Bokujō Monogatari) crossover game for the Switch and PC via Steam in the Americas this fall. The game will also launch in Europe and Southeast Asia in fall. The game launched in Japan for the Switch on June 13.
