Story of Seasons: Friends of Mineral Town Brings the Cows Home Soon

Friends of Mineral Town on Switch finally has a release date, and it's sprouting up soon.

We knew Story of Seasons: Friends of Mineral Town was sprouting up sometime this summer, but XSEED Games today announced a firm release date. Friends of Mineral Town on Nintendo Switch will launch July 14.

There’s a lovely new trailer accompanying the announcement, showing off what’s changed and what stays the same.

Mineral Town itself is back with all its residents (and that gloriously nostalgic soundtrack) intact. But there are some new, marriageable faces around town as well, including Jennifer and Brandon. You’ll even be able to marry any of the town’s eligible folk regardless of what playable character you choose.

The goal in Friends of Mineral Town remains the same: bring your family farm back to life, and dig a place for yourself in the town by making friends and taking part in events. However, it’s a remake more than a remaster, and XSEED says we can expect new content and gameplay changes alongside returning favorites like the horse race event and multi-floor mining.

All retail pre-orders for Story of Seasons: Friends of Mineral Town include a Strawberry Hanako plush based on the game’s strawberry cow, while digital pre-purchases unlock a cow costume. In the game, of course.

It’s been far too long since we last visited Mineral Town, and we can’t wait to get back there. Stay tuned to GameSkinny for more Friends of Mineral Town Switch news as it develops.
