Story of Seasons (Harvest Moon) Has Its First English Screenshots


Story of Seasons, better known as Harvest Moon: Connect to a New Land, will be published in North America this Winter, Xseed Games have announced. Yes, Xseed are publishing the new Harvest Moon, not Natsume.


And that’s why the game is being called Story of Seasons instead of Harvest Moon—because Natsume owns that name in the U.S. In fact, throughout Xseed’s entire press release announcement, the game is referred to as Story of Seasons, while the Harvest Moon franchise is referred to as “Bokujo Monogatari,” its Japanese name.


Story of Seasons represents a new chapter in our amazing tale,” says Yoshifumi Hashimoto, Head of Development at Marvelous AQL, in the press release.


“We are creating a new experience that will carry on the spirit of Bokujo Monogatari, and in doing so, will fulfill our loyal fans’ expectations and desires while ushering in a new generation of games to come.”
