    The latest mainline Story of Seasons game is currently in development, and as fans eagerly await its release, they'll be able to bide their time by playing a unique take on the series in the form of Doraemon: Story of Seasons. Marvelous Entertainment is developing this spinoff game that takes the traditional Story of Seasons/Harvest Moon formula, and adds a flair of Doraemon to it. For those unaware, Doraemon is an old Japanese manga series from the 1970's, which spawned an incredibly popular anime film series that is considered a cultural phenomenon in its home country. Announced for an English localization by Bandai Namco, the game will be launching for the PC and Nintendo Switch this year, in Fall 2019.

    Wow, would never have expected this to be localized

    Maybe Doraemon could become an international icon (probably not)

    I believe (though I might be wrong) that it was also massive in Spain.
    Either way, it's good to see it coming our way.

    I'm glad that they decided to bring it over to the west, even if it's digital-only. It's a bit of a shame because I liked the boxart. Didn't expect it to get a PC release as well on launch day (it'd be nice if this means that the other Story of Seasons games and future ones might get ported to PC in the future).

    Surprised this was localized for US. Excited for another real Harvest Moon title and excited it is for PC. Hopefully, the next main entry is released for PC so all of those Stardew Valley worshipers see what awesome farming games they are missing. Eagerly awaiting the next Rune Factory as well.

    I can already see the forced bilinear filtering with 720p textures.

    I grew up with Doraemon and Ninja Hattori on TV, so I'll be seriously looking forward to this.

    I'm quite hyped about it.
