XSEED Games is known for its cozy simulator titles, and the latest entry in the Story of Seasons series, Story of Seasons: A Wonderful Life, has been confirmed to receive a localization.
While the Japanese version of the new A Wonderful Life title is due out tomorrow, XSEED games has finally confirmed the news that the latest Story of Seasons will indeed be making it out west on July 27. Although it’s six months later than its initial release, the news is far better than not receiving a localization at all. XSEED also dropped a new trailer for the title, in papercraft art, depicting how life will unfold over the years in the Forgotten Valley which can be seen below (also localized).
While the multiplatform announcement was made two months ago, the new title will indeed be available on PS5, Xbox Series X|S, Nintendo Switch and PC via Steam, and hasn’t been confirmed for the previous generation of consoles. It’s worth mentioning that this title has previously released on the Nintendo GameCube and the PlayStation 2, and it will be a full-scale remake complete with new events, enhanced festivals, a cornucopia of never-before-seen crops, and even more recipes to cook, aside from the obvious graphical uptick.
Key features for the new Story of Seasons: A Wonderful Life according to XSEED:
A Familiar Farm for a New Generation
