If you're a fan of the 2003 / 2004 Nintendo GameCube classic, Harvest Moon: A Wonderful Life, then we've got some fantastic news for you! The game is getting "reimagined" for current-gen consoles, arriving on Xbox Series X|S (no sign of an Xbox One version) at some point during summer 2023.
It won't be under the "Harvest Moon" banner this time, of course - it'll be called "Story of Seasons: A Wonderful Life" instead. This version will also feature "reimagined visuals, animations, and additional updates".
"Put down roots on your new farm in the peaceful town of Forgotten Valley and tell your own generation-spanning tale in STORY OF SEASONS: A Wonderful Life.
Bring life to the land, find love among the town's friendly folk, and make lasting memories with a family of your very own in this reimagining of a beloved farm sim. Whether this is your first STORY OF SEASONS adventure or you’re returning to Forgotten Valley, a wonderful life awaits you."
Physical pre-orders for Story of Seasons: A Wonderful Life are available as of today across Europe and Australia (no word on other regions yet), while the Limited Edition will feature various extras such as an A5 notebook and Collector's Box. Marvelous Europe is handling the EU and Australia release, and XSEED is the publisher in North America.
Here's another look at that Limited Edition (£44.99 / €49.99). Let's hope this remake lives up to the hype!
Looking forward to returning to this Nintendo GameCube classic? Let us know down in the comments.
