Story of Season

Nintendo has now confirmed the release dates for Story of Seasons in Europe and Australasia. Europe will be getting the game on January 8, while Australasia will receive it on January 9. You can find an official overview of the game below:

story-of-seasons20th November 2015 – Get ready for a walk on the rural side in Story of Seasons, launching exclusively on Nintendo 3DS family systems on 8th November. Take control of your own farm in Oak Tree Town, make friends and help the community thrive again in Marvelous Inc.’s latest farming and life simulator. Story of Seasons is the beginning of a new chapter in the ‘Bokujo Monogatari’ series, which has been reborn in the West under a new name, but continues the well-loved traditions of the long-standing franchise.

Once players have arrived at their farms, it’s time to decide which crops to grow and animals to raise. As their farm grows, they can participate in the town’s annual competitions, make their own furniture, and even set up a wildlife safari full of exotic animals for fellow villagers to explore. Budding farmers can also go online to visit their friends’ farms, help harvest each other’s fields and even exchange gifts.

As players become part of the community they’ll have plenty of opportunities to show off their personality by giving their character a customised look. New outfits can be unlocked through play, allowing them to impress the locals – not to mention any eligible bachelors and bachelorettes on the path to blissful family life. Some accessories can also bestow extra stamina and health, or increase the price that produce can be sold for. A farmer’s life isn’t one of idly sitting about, after all!

When the time comes to sell produce, players can take advantage of the Trade Depot, allowing them to trade with farmers in all kinds of exotic locations outside of their village. The traders’ desires will change over time, and it’s up to budding entrepreneurs to decide when to sell in order to make more money. Trading a wide variety of products like fertiliser, fish, and milk, while buying items like silk and blueprints to create new tools will attract more merchants to the village, encouraging players to branch out and experiment in order to maximise their profits.

By snapping up some Mystery Seeds, crops can be grown that look remarkably like some famous Nintendo items. Immediately grow all nearby plants by sprouting a Super Mushroom, keep your crops fresh for up to thirty days and make them more valuable with the Super Star, or rid yourself of any wilted crops with the Fire Flower.

Puzzle & Dragons X

GungHo recently revealed some more information about Puzzle & Dragons X.

While the game still has the traditional match-3 gameplay, it now contains classical RPG elements like the focus on story and character progression as well. You can choose to play as either a male or female character, and the game will feature a full 3D overworld.

The game takes place on Dorogoza Island, a place with a lot of “Drop” energy. There are over 500 monsters in the game and, like in previous Puzzle & Dragons games, many of them can evolve. Furthermore, the main character can wear pieces of armor that were strengthened with the monsters’ energy, allowing him to use their skills in battle.
