story of season manga short story 2

Story of Seasons: Friends of Mineral Town’s debut is upon us, with people getting a chance to remember what farming was like in the old days with this remake of a Game Boy Advance entry. Since it is already out in Australia and Europe now, the hallmark is being celebrated. In addition to the expected launch trailer, the Story of Seasons manga and short story have been localized into English, French, German, and Spanish.  

The Story of Seasons short story by Igusa Matsuyama stars Yuto, one of the two male protagonist options in the Friends of Mineral Town remake. It is a simple picture book that sets a foundation for his new life on the farm as he takes part in chores, learns how demanding it can be, and even meets potential love interests. It can be read in full on the official site.

The Story of Seasons manga by Rumi Shimokaze shared on the official site follows the other male lead, Pete. While it looks at the general tasks he needs to perform in his new life as a farmer, it also acts as something of a tutorial for a new player. After all, it does bring up elements like stamina, tool upgrades, and giving gifts.

Here’s a gallery of the full manga. Remember to read for right to left!

Finally, here’s the Story of Seasons: Friends of Mineral Town launch trailer.

Story of Seasons: Friends of Mineral Town is immediately available on the Nintendo Switch in Australia, Europe, and Japan. It will come to the Nintendo Switch in North America and PC worldwide on July 14, 2020.
