In March 2019, Marvelous announced that it has licensed the Story of Seasons (Bokujou Monogatari) brand to Tencent for a mobile game. Tencent would be handling development, distribution, and operation of said mobile game. Over the weekend, Tencent’s NExT Studios revealed the first trailer for Story of Seasons Mobile. The trailer showcases a lot of the usual scenes leading into a Story of Seasons experience including farming, cutting down trees, fishing, caring for livestock, and more. Going by the trailer, it looks really good and feels like it blends a bit of the aesthetic seen in Pokemon with what you’d want in a Story of Seasons game. The game has been in development since 2019. Check out the official website here. Watch the first trailer for Story of Seasons Mobile from Tencent’s NExT Studios (via Gematsu and Niko Partners’ Daniel Ahmad) below:
It is going to be interesting to see how Story of Seasons Mobile does when it finally releases. On mobile, Stardew Valley has been doing really well and My Time At Portia is set to arrive soon. Story of Seasons Mobile will likely be free to play. A release window or plans for a global release haven’t been revealed so far. Given how well Story of Seasons has been doing in the West on Nintendo Switch and previously on Nintendo 3DS, hopefully Story of Seasons Mobile does get a global release. The trailer above definitely looks very polished as expected. The most recent Story of Seasons release is the Nintendo Switch title Story of Seasons: Pioneers of Olive Town. Read Shaun’s review of that here. Have you played any of the recent Story of Seasons games?
