During today’s Nintendo Direct, Marvelous and Xseed announced a remaster of the PS2/GameCube Harvest Moon: A Wonderful Life under the title of Story of Seasons: A Wonderful Life. The game will release on January 26, 2023 in Japan and in Summer 2023 in the West.
In Story of Seasons: A Wonderful Life, players will take over an area where their father wished to start a farm. It’s called the Forgotten Valley, where a new life will begin — making friends, growing crops, and raising animals. There are dating elements, too, and a big part is getting married and having a kid to watch them grow up in-game.
