General Game Information


Nintendo Everything via 1/13/16 wrote:
A few hours ago, Famitsu unveiled Story of Seasons: Good Friends of Three Villages. Leaks from the magazine provide a few more details about the project.

We mentioned earlier today that Lulucoco Town, Tsuyukusa Village, and Wes Town are in the game. The first one is tropical based, the second features a Japanese style, and the third one has a western theme. Famitsu seems to have character details about Wes Town this week. We’re waiting to hear about marriage candidates as this information has not yet leaked. Reports also mention “cute pets and animals”, though we’ll need to wait for tomorrow’s scans to see them for ourselves.

Just like in the past, players can choose their gender and appearance. This extends to skin color, hair color, facial expressions, and more.

One new element in Story of Seasons: Good Friends of Three Villages is a “Farm Circle” system. This allows players to increase efficiency by placing certain buildings and facilities in the farm.

Story of Seasons: Good Friends of Three Villages is 80 percent complete. It’ll be released early summer in Japan.

Some info thanks to Emurii’s translations!

Some tidbits:

- Looks like you will befriend pets and then you can have (more than?) one live with you. They will give you gifts.
- You can bring your pet with you anywhere around town
- There is a pet contest festival
- Part time jobs are back, with jobs in each of the three towns
- There is a jump button
- You can change the appearance of/rearrange your house
- There's a system called "Farm Circle," where it seems you plant your crops around a scarecrow (that is movable), and those crops around it get some kind of bonus

Gonna go back to the first two pages now...

- FeMC and MC have both wanted to own a farm since they were kids. The FeMC's personality is described as being a bit strong willed, but kind, and the MC's is described as kind but kind of wishy-washy/changes his mind easily.
- There is a feature in character customization where you change what "type" of person you are/what you are good at, and it affects your character's life. Hmmm???
- Lulukoko Town: Mysterious, exotic, resort-type seaside town. You can get southern fruits and ocean produce.
- Tsuyukusa Town: Nostalgic, Asian-influenced town with a river and a bridge. Paddy crops. You feel like you want to wear a kimono there.
- Wes Town: This is the first town you are invited to (implies that there is some kind of unlock order). IT IS A MINING TOWN.
- FRANK IS YOUR UNCLE


About the Game


The Country-Style ‘Wes Town’
Image Image
A village lined with wooden buildings and that exudes the atmosphere of the West.
In the past, it flourished as a mine town, and traces of that period still exist in various places.
As far as activities go, you can go to the river and fish, or mine for minerals at one of the mining locations (provided you have a hammer).
This is the village you start out in; however, your farm neighbors all three towns so you can easily access all of them.
There is the Postino (post office) in this town as well that you can use to send letters to family and friends in all three villages. The letters come with predetermined things that they will say and you get to choose an option of what you would like your letter to say.

The Asian-Style ‘Tsuyukusa Village’
Image Image
A village with tiled roof buildings and an arched bridge over a flowing river that exudes a nostalgic atmosphere.
It has a vast source of water, and is prosperous in paddy fields and cultivated land.
You’ll find people wearing kimonos in this village.

The Tropical-Style ‘Lulucoco Village’
Image Image
An exotic village where a mysterious ruin exists and with a beach that echoes the pleasant sound of the waves.
Tropical fruits and marine products are aplenty here, and you’ll find people wearing colorful ethnic outfits.


Farming
Image Image
Plot farming (like in the last installment of SoS) makes a return! Crops are set in a 3x3 plot that is tilled, seeded, watered, and harvested in a bunch.
Moving plots makes a reappearance after disappearing from SoS after ANB. X
A new mechanic called “farm circle” is being introduced. By constructing a building or facility on your farm, you can improve the growth of your crops, and by simply changing the arrangement of these buildings, you can increase the efficiency of your harvest.
There’s a special type of Farm Circles called “Power Circles”, which can impact nearby Farm Circles (they can help raise the crop yield, for example). Some examples of power circles are...
Cactus: raises the sweetness of crops (most likely useful for fruits);
Flower bed in a cart: makes your crops more colourful;
Water fountain with flowers: increase the moisture levels.
New qualities for crops has been introduced such as sweetness, color/sheen, and moisture.

Pets
Image
You can choose your favorite pet and have them live with you in your home as your “Soul Mate Pet.”
Pets can follow you around your farm as well as village to village as you travel. X
You can have your pets compete/participate in certain festivals.

Confirmed types of pets available:
Dogs: Husky, Shiba, Bernese, Doberman, Toy Poodle, Dachshund, Chihuahua, Beagle, and more
Cats: Maine Coon, Scotty, Himalayan, Calico, Siamese, Tabby, American Shorthair, Bengal, and more
Other: Capybara

Part-Time Jobs
Perfectly Nintendo on 2/10/16 wrote:
Finally, we have part-time jobs, which are (more or less) side-quests. You can do those in order to earn some extra money, which can be used on the farm or buy things to woo your sweetheart. They work that way:

thanks to an intermediary, you find a part-time job;
you go see the person who needs your help;
you do what they ask you to do;
you get your reward (money, but also some items occasionally).
There are quite a few different jobs: chopping wood, delivering the mail, transporting crops, and more.


Mining
Image
There will be specific spots for mining that you will be able to hit with a hammer around Wes Town to get minerals from. While there will be multiple spots to mine from, the traditional method of mining of going into a mine and hitting rocks while going down different levels to get more rare stones, will not be returning in this installment.

Getting Married
Info from Cher's guide

Each of the three towns have their own marriage candidates. Each candidate will have a flower on the conversation dialog box that displays their current friendship level and each town has its own flower type: Westown has a rose, Tsuyukusa has a camellia, and Lulukoko Village has a sunflower.

Once you raise a candidate's friendship to a blue flower or higher, you can give a going-steady pendant to confirm your commitment with that person. You may propose marriage once you have completed all of the marriage requirements, with each towns' candidate requiring a specific proposal item. The item you need for proposing to a candidate in Tsuyukusa is the Blue Feather; the other towns' items are not known yet. The wedding will be themed based on the town your fiance is from.


Having a Child

Image

Sometime after you get married to your one true love, you will have a child. However, at this point it is uncertain how many children you can/will have and how gender is chosen. The child's physical look will take after the spouse you marry. How much of your child's appearance is based on your spouse is unknown at this time as well, whether it is just hair color or an entire different design is still to be revealed.

The child shown above is the child you will have should you marry Wayne.

Looks great Ghoul! Thanks for making the thread :D Thanks Cher for opening up the new forum!

I feel like we'll have a bit of a wait until the next update though. I think it was around a month last time between updates, but I don't remember precisely.

Thanks for compiling everything! It's way easier to find info this way. I missed Lichette's and Wayne's portraits in the other thread and am happy to see them here. Wayne looks the same but Lichette looks much nicer in-game.

Thanks Cher and Ghoul for the shiny new forum and thread! After reading all of the info on the other thread, I am beyond excited for this! Let's hope they're making it extra amazing for their 20th anniversary! I'd say that my biggest wants for this next game would be that we get a wide variety of marriage candidates (Let's mix it up a little and get some types we've never seen before into the game!), easier crafting for clothing or a larger amount of clothing that you can craft without needing crazy ingredients, and, more than anything, I'd LOVE for the game to be more plot driven. The past games where the plot was more complex (ToT and AP had great plots) always held my interest longer, and I'd love to have more of a story rather than just collecting and shipping a million items.

Has anyone translated what the characters are saying in the in-game screenshots?

Also, when can we expect more information about the game? I want to see more potential husbandos! :heart:

In the screenshots...

Wayne: I always like my home to smell nice. That's why I decorate it with lots of flowers.
Lichette: Let me know if you have any questions about raising flowers! I'll help you however I can.

Interesting they both talk about flowers in their introductory screenshot. I mean flower girl is a given, but.

How are we going to romanize her name anyway? Lisette, Lichette, Licette...?
