Like, all I want to do is farm in Story of Seasons: Friends of Mineral Town. That’s all I want to do all day, every day. I remember playing the original on GameBoy Advance so often that buttons on the little unit started to die. I had seven in games years clocked within a few months.
At first I was a little turned off by the art style of the game. Something about the more cartoon like look just wasn’t what I was expecting. Now that I’ve put in about ten hours a day since I bought it… I’ve really grown to appreciate how the artists made the game look. The animals are adorable and the villages feel like they have personalities beyond the words on the screen.
Some parts of the game have been changed for the new Switch edition, but so far I enjoy what they’ve done. At first, I didn’t even notice, and then I found a new staircase here, and a couple villagers over there, all of which don’t feel forced at all. I haven’t made it through the first year yet, so we’ll see come year two.
Gameplay mechanics for games like Story of Seasons normally isn’t hard to accomplish, but it really feels smooth and natural. I don’t find I’m looking at my controller to see what button I’m supposed to hit. Although, that may be because of the crazy amount of hours I’ve put into my switch and into games but the same developers.
It’s crazy to think I’ve been playing this game since about 2007, which was a couple years after it’s original release. With this remake, I’ve fallen in love with Mineral Town all over again, and I love befriending everyone. This journey down memory lane has been a great time, and I recommend this game to anyone who loved the original as much as I did. Plus, you can be gay and I love that. Girls in these games are always better.
I’ve put in way too many hours into this game, and I’m going to go add more now… Thanks for stopping by today, and if you want to pick this game up but don’t own a Switch, it’s on Steam for some reason. Have an awesome day!
