Of course, everyone now knows that the name of the game, Half Moon, is not created by the original team. And games created by the innovative team use the English name Story of Seasons instead, making the former fans of farming games more likely to wait to play games created by the Marvelous team, and recently released a new remake on the Nintendo Switch. (And PC)
And after a long wait, the Story of Seasons Friends of Mineral Town game finally went on sale. (Released in Japan last year)The original was released on Game Boy Advance in 2003 and is another successful region. This return on Nintendo Switch and PC is considered unusual because there is an upgrade in the game’s image until the same as the new game, including the design work.
The graphics are not the best but are perfectly balanced
Story of Seasons Friends of Mineral Town game imagery remakes the entire game By referring to the original GameBoy era, where both the characters and the scene were redrawn, not the same pixel dot anymore.
The scenes in the game are lovely. Trees and grasses are swaying. The characters look like a cute SD that fits the game very much. The view in the game is still 2D top view, but with a slight adjustment to the perspective, but can not be adjusted to 3D is considered better, but does not change the game to 100%.
Personally, the drama in the game was completely redrawn. It is quite different from the original Some are almost unrecognizable without a name. Although we may lose some classic belief that after playing for a while, we will get used to it as if you have never played the original before, probably not feeling much. Overall, the picture came out well. It doesn’t have to be beautiful, cute, and it fits the game very much.
The power component may look a bit smooth, but there is a cute song that matches the gameplay as well as adjusting from the original to be more modern. Also, the sound effects were created to match the atmosphere in the game full of nature—warm village and a beautiful farm that has nothing to criticize.
The gameplay of the Story of Seasons Friends of Mineral Town game is actual play-moon gameplay that all fans are familiar with. By starting, we will select character settings and play the role of a farmer who has to grow various plants and raise animals on the farm.
Sell and develop our garden to be bigger and bigger and create new things Come into the farm like a new pet or improve the land area for agriculture, including finding new plants that change according to the season.
And Friends of Mineral Town come with character upgrades that, when using any item a lot, will get more levels and add to the new features, allowing players to enjoy playing with challenges that we always play. It still has a system of days and hours that will walk indefinitely, Including a realistic season system with new activities added throughout the game.
In addition to the time system, players still have to look at their health values that, when we keep gardening, we will gradually decrease and refill from eating and doing activities such as sleeping Or soaking in a hot spring.
There are a lot of activities
There are many activities besides gardening. Whether it proceeds with the story that the game put in, and some scenes will gradually unlock. There is mining in the mine. There are horse racing sports. And of course the highlights of the game like building relationships with people in the city and can continue until marriage as before. Each character has different conditions And believes that the fans Farming vegetable series. I remember that we were able to marry unbelievable characters too.
However, the game’s remake, if not counting the upgraded graphics, has not changed much in the style of play. But at least, it has changed the new menu system, making us much easier to understand and adapted to the new game engine (and PC), allowing us to modify items more easily than before.
The good news is that the game has easy modes to choose from, making those who want to play comfortably can enjoy the game faster and easier than before.
The Story of Seasons Friends of Mineral Town game is still a fun original that fans of the past have been familiar with because the game was created by a team from Marvelous and still has the original gameplay.
