Latest Farming Video Game News

SoS:FoMT News, Mara, April Mobage, and Farm'n Game Discounts | Posted at 01:23 PM 2020 4 03 April 2020

Happy Farm'n Friday! Another week of stay-at-home work is complete. Though with all the rain we had, it felt better to be indoors than outdoors. The upcoming weather forecast for next week is predicting clear skies until the weekend, with possibly 65-to-70 degree (F) temperatures. Perfect planting time! With the garden centers closed for safety measures, I'll be digging through my archive of "when will I ever grow this?" seed packets to find something worth sprouting for this year's vegetable garden. I know there are snap pea seeds in the stockpile, but this may be the year the packet of Komatsuna seeds (mustard spinach?) buried at the bottom of the seed bin are planted.

On the other hand, the tulips are finally starting to bloom. There are little bunches of colored groups popping up in the front yard flower bed: some yellows, lavenders, pinks, and the mighty Casa Grande orange bunch by the front porch. There's a grouping of dark purple Victoria's Secret that should be opening their buds in a few weeks, as they like to bloom later in spring than the others.

SoS:FoMT Preorders

The pre-orders in Europe for Story of Seasons: Friends of Mineral Town are becoming available at various retailers such as Amazon Germany, GAME UK, Cultura France, and FNAC Spain. The game's scheduled release date in EU and AUS is July 10.

In North America, XSeed Games has not confirmed the official release date yet. A preliminary pre-order page with the Strawberry Cow pre-order plushie has appeared on Amazon US with an estimated release date of July 28. Please remember that date is not confirmed yet and is subject to change; it could be the 28th, an earlier date, or even a later date. When a date is confirmed, XSeed will announcement it through their social network outlets.

The screen shots on the various Amazon sites confirm that Popuri's EN name is still Popuri, and Elli is now spelled Elly.
