    After Marvelous Europe previously confirmed the European release date of the Harvest Moon: Friends of Mineral Town remake, now called Story of Seasons: Friends of Mineral Town, North American localization studio XSEED has also locked in their release date as well. North Americans will get their hands on the game on July 14th, just four days after the European launch. It'll retail both physically and digitally for $49.99, with a special pre-order bonus of a strawberry cow plush added if you buy from the XSEED store. Digital pre-orders will include a cow costume DLC for your character to wear in-game.

    finally! I'v been waiting a long time for this. I tried really hard to play the pseudo-translation patch, but it really didn't cut it for me. So hype!

    That running looked like 60 fps to me. If that's the case then kudos to them since this isn't your typical 60 fps style game.

    the fact that they're near-constantly hammering in the fact that this is basically just harvest moon (it IS harvest moon) but they can't call it that is made even funnier by their insistence that story of seasons is always in all caps

    Unfortunately, yes. Natsume kept the rights to the name "harvest moon" so they push out trash using the name now. Oddly, both the crappy fake natsume harvest moons and the new story of seasons real ones are both still called "bokujou monogatari" (story of seasons) in japan, which I assume is similarly confusing to them.

    What a confusing fucked up mess. Whoever is making story of seasons just needs to sue natsume for the name back.

    They can't. They don't have grounds as far as I can tell. Natsume held the right to the name because they were the ones who localized the games, and where the ones who got to pick what they were called here. Marvelous simply doesn't have the rights to the name because they weren't even the ones to name it that. Natsume gets to keep the name since, according to the law, the name is their intellectual property.

    This date sort of confused me, but then I realized only the EU version was officially announced until now. (They fixed the layeredFS text formatting btw, so the localization they were holding back for unknown reasons has been playable nearly perfectly for a while now.)

    I'm surprised people are still finding out about the Farm Story HM/SoS thing now. Then again, due to my American ignorance I didn't know that "zed" was a thing until I was 28. That was a fun day.

    Damn, this game was awesome, all go to the beach with the dog, all mining for gems in the winter, all running across town with the flower the girl likes lol.

    I never liked Animal Crossing, but these games were super fun, hope this does really well.
