XSEED Games are bringing the latest in the popular Harvest Moon series to the US, with a March 31 release date announced by the publisher.

Story of Seasons, which drops the usual “Harvest Moon” moniker of its title, was released in Japan in February 2014. We’ve been waiting for some time for the new game, which begins a new chapter for the beloved farming/life simulation franchise.

Don’t be too concerned – despite the name change, you’ll still enjoy the much-loved traditions of farming, animal care and relationship-building, along with new connectivity features to encourage trading and expansion of farms and friendships.

With interesting new characters to meet, including a tiny witch and a tiny goddess, plus new seeds, fruits, pets, and much more, are you ready to start your harvest from March 31?
