Harvest Moon: Friends of Mineral Town remake slated for Nintendo Switch


I can already hear the wedding bells

Harvest Moon: Friends of Mineral Town is making a comeback later this year. As reported by Famitsu, Marvelous is remaking the Game Boy Advance title for Nintendo Switch. The plan is to incorporate elements from More Friends of Mineral Town as well, with a launch in Japan set for October 17, 2019.

Aside from a few introductory screenshots, there's also artwork for characters like Cliff and Popuri.

When I think of iconic GBA-era box art, Harvest Moon: Friends of Mineral Town immediately springs to mind. It's a shame that art direction wasn't able to persist over the years. With today's news, I have half a mind to fish out my boxed-up Wii U and poke around in the eShop version of the original game.

The Switch remake will release in the West under the name Story of Seasons: Friends of Mineral Town.

Elsewhere in the farming-sim field, Nintendo Switch is getting Doraemon Story of Seasons.
