Story of Seasons
THIS IS GOING TO BE GREAT!
I cannot wait for this game! I have HM:Lost Valley pre-ordered as well, but my biggest hopes lie with Story of Seasons. The new Trading system sounds interesting and I am excited to see it. Also, being able to have two children is going to be awesome. The marriage candidates all seem awesome so far. I love that Cam (Kamil) and Reina (Licorice) are back. Seeing just a few friendly faces definitely helps with the integration into the new systems they are putting into place with this game. The villagers seem diverse, and I love that there are other farmers who are main characters. We had Ash in ToTT and a few others before, but they didn't make it a big deal like they are going to in this game--especially with Elise "a Wealthy fellow farmer" and Eda "an Experienced fellow farmer." It feels like this will be a great game for new and veteran players alike. I felt myself a little bored with A New Beginning once I got to the 5th Town Renovation Plan, but Everything I have read on SoS sounds like they are going in wonderful directions for "the New Harvest Moon." I am ecstatic to get my hands on it and play!
Exciting new features, gameplay improvements!
I've been trying to contain my excitement since the game was first announced to be released in Japan. I remember excitedly checking forums to see new characters begin announced and let me tell you, a year of hype can change someone. Obvious bias aside, SoS is looking to be a very promising game. XSEED is well known for their inspired translations, and solid localizations so we know that it will bring a new dimension to the Harvest Moon world. Farming has been streamlined, which has been a common complaint in previous games, and the return of farmer customization is great. It'll be a fun new addition to the franchise and I cannot wait to be a cute farmer again!
Harvest Moon fans rejoice!
The proper successor in the Bokujou Monogatari (or as we know it, Harvest Moon) line. This game took the base of Harvest Moon: A New Beginning, and improved upon it greatly with new story line, lovable characters, new animals, and new shop and farming mechanics. Under the masterful translation of XSEED, who brought us Rune factory 4, this game is required for any fan of the Harvest Moon series!
The Harvest moon series is not for everyone, however there are really great games and I personally enjoy them alot! I've played lots of the Harvest moon games and cannot wait for this one to be released.
A new beginning for harvest moon fans
I can't wait for this game to come out! I love Xseed for bringing this to America!
I also do not really mind the name change, as there has been plenty of games made under the 'Harvest Moon' title.
Farming once more!
Xseed did an awesome job with Rune Factory 4 and I think they will put out an excellent product once more.
The new country trade and helping other players will be a new and interesting features that could be proved to either be a great help, a hassle, or not really make a difference.
This could be just the revamp the series is in need of. Definitely a pre-order for me, the marriage candidates are also looking good from what I was able to find.
This game is what every Harvest Moon fan has been wanting. The localization team working on this is the same that did Rune Factory 4 and other Harvest Moon titles. We should expect a in depth, smooth game that has the character qualities that all die-hard Harvest Moon fans love, but the updated game-play that we have been craving for a long time. Despite the lack of the name "Harvest Moon:", it will be quality that I've been eagerly waiting for!
Pushing it back
They really are pushing this game back a lot I was really excited to see it come out this year now its been pushed back until 2015. I want to get it but having to wait so long it will just be forgotten with all the other great games coming out before then
A Big Step Forward For XSeed and Harvest Moon
XSeed has always done an excellent job with all of their releases. They provide accurate translations and quality special editions for all of the games they release; I expect that their handling of the new incarnation of the Harvest Moon series will be of the same high quality!
I've played all other Harvest Moon Rune factory games and this one looks to be just as great if not better. Cannot wait for that release date.
