The latest Famitsu (via Ryokutya2089) has confirmed a new Story of Seasons game is currently in development.
The news comes via an interview with Bandai Namco’s Koji Nakajima and Marvelous’ Hikaru Nakano, who confirmed an entirely new game – separate from the upcoming Doraemon Story of Seasons spinoff – is now in development.
Nakajima revealed the project was initially greenlit by himself, mostly because he’s a big fan of Harvest Moon: Back to Nature. He noted, however, that Doraemon Story of Seasons has a more linear main story, unlike the other games in the franchise that are more open-ended. He noted the theme is family, and focuses on the love coming from your own family.
Doraemon Story of Seasons is launching for Nintendo Switch on June 13th in Japan. A western release isn’t confirmed.
