So many confusing naming conventions
PoPoLoCrois will be fusing with Harvest Moon for PoPoLoCrois Farm Story. The game will feature several characters from the PoPoLoCrois series, and the protagonist will be Prince Pietro. In addition to command-based RPG battles, he will also have a farm where he will grow crops.
The game will be developed by Marvelous, the same developer behind the Harvest Moon games in the past. However, the game will be published in North America by XSEED instead of Natsume. Although Marvelous has developed the Harvest Moon games in the past, Natsume, who was the previous publisher in the West, owns the Harvest Moon trademark in the West and are making their own games in a new Harvest Moon series, the first which will be Harvest Moon: The Lost Valley. XSEED has retitled the Marvelous games Story of Seasons. Kyle has the story behind this rather confusing series of events here.
Who knows what confusing name-changing drama will unfold from the production of this game? Only The Shadow knows. The tentatively titled PoPoLoCrois Farm Story will be released on Nintendo 3DS at a yet to be determined date.
