Back when farming games were a bit more niche, one named dominated the genre: Harvest Moon. In the West at least, this name was the only real player in the farming space. Fast forward to now and there is a tractor full to choose from. Sometimes, it can be nice to return to a classic, and that is exactly what we’ve got here. Albeit under a new banner. STORY OF SEASONS: A Wonderful Life is out today on Xbox Series X|S, PlayStation 5 and Nintendo Switch.

Tend to your farm

After inheriting a farm from your late father, you head to the Forgotten Valley to see if you can make a success of it. But keeping livestock, growing crops and tending to your farms needs can only get you so far, you also need to make a life for yourself in this sleepy little town.

Visit the café, talk to the residents and even fall in love. STORY OF SEASONS: A Wonderful Life has added in new romance options no matter if you choose to play as a male/female/non-binary character.
