Publisher XSEED Games and Marvelous USA today announced that Story of Seasons: Friends of Mineral Town will be making its way to the Nintendo Switch this summer in North America.

Pre-orders for the retail version of this remake of Yasuhiro Wada’s 2003 Game Boy Advance title will open soon and will include a “pocket plushie” based on the in-game animal, “Strawberry Hanako,” while supplies last.

To coincide with the announcement of the game’s summer release, XSEED Games has released a new trailer for the upcoming farming sim showcasing the various activities you can participate in such as animal contests, pet fetch competitions, mochi making, horse racing, and more.

You can find a summary of the game below courtesy of XSEED Games:

“Summoned by Mayor Thomas to visit the farm once owned by their late grandfather, a young city-slicker returns to Mineral Town to find the once lush farmland has fallen into disrepair. Memories of idyllic summers spent in Mineral Town come rushing back and they immediately pick up their tools, vowing to restore the fields to their former glory. In their new hometown, they’ll tend the land and become part of the bustling rural community. Along the way to becoming a world-class farmer, they’ll befriend townsfolk and, perhaps, even find romance.”

So, do you think Story of Seasons: Friends of Mineral Town has what it takes to pry Switch players away from Animal Crossing: New Horizons when it releases this summer? Be sure to let us know in the comments section.
