Tencent has revealed a first proper look at Story of Seasons Mobile, its upcoming adaptation of the popular life sim series. The game is currently in development at Tencent’s Next Studios, creator of Crown Trick and a charming co-op puzzle game by the name of Biped.
While the Story of Seasons Mobile release date is still unknown, a recent trailer shared widely by Niko Partners analyst Daniel Ahmad does shed some light on what to expect from the incoming title.
For starters, it looks like a fully-fledged Story of Seasons game, meaning you’ll spend a good deal of your time tending to your farm, caring for your livestock, and just generally living out a chilled existence in a colourful, cutesy world. The trailer highlights some of the game’s characters, including a portly mayor, and grants a sneak peek at some of the activities on offer, from fishing to foraging. Not only does it seem like a good bit of fun, but it’s arguably even more of a looker than the console entries.
If you’re unfamiliar with the series, the recently released Pioneers of Olive Town is a great place to start. In our Story of Seasons: Pioneers of Olive Town review, Ruby called it “an outstanding life sim with in-depth farming aspects, adorable romance options, and gorgeous ferrets.”
Here is a first look at Story of Seasons Mobile which is developed by Tencent's NExT studios and authorised by Marvelous.
