Fans of the original “Bouko Monogatari” franchise that they have been playing since the late ’90s will be happy to hear that XSEED Games has now announced the release date for the next entry in the franchise. Story of Seasons will now be released on March 31st in North America and those who pre-order the $39.99 game through select retailers will be given an “Angora” rabbit pocket plushie as a bonus.
Despite the different name, Story of Seasons will take the well-loved traditions of past games and include a number of new seeds, pets, and new ways to create your unique farm. The major addition is the ability to trade with other countries to increase plant variety as well as help the town you live in prosper. To commemorate the release date announcement, XSEED has released a new set of English screenshots as well as a new English trailer for Story of Seasons, both of which can be found below.
