Reunion in Mineral Town

Double Jump Kris MiiHappy Monday everyone!

If you follow us on Twitter or Tumblr, fairly recently, I made little posts just celebrating my excitement at the fact that there will be remakes of a couple of my favorite games from the Harvest Moon series.

I’ve been playing Stardew Valley recently, mostly because it reminds me of the simpler, older Harvest Moon games from when I was younger. While some of the more recent Harvest Moon games aren’t too bad, I do feel that some of them are somewhat gimmicky and have moved away from the charming gameplay that was just, “Build up your farm however you want, make friends, maybe get married and have a kid,” that the original games had.

My first Harvest Moon experience was Friends of Mineral Town for the Gameboy Advance and the idea of designing my own farm and taking care of the ranch animals was addictive and satisfying. I became more hooked on the series when More Friends of Mineral Town became a thing because, hey, I was able to play as a girl. Now, there are reports of a remake of Friends/More Friends of Mineral Town for the Switch coming out later this fall!

Rather, the fall date is for Japan, but it has been confirmed that the game will come out in North America as well. I am very excited and I’m hoping that maybe Rachel would like this one better than Light of Hope.

The only concern I have for it is that I’ve become accustomed to Stardew Valley’s lack of regard for gender when it comes to marriage. I don’t marry in these kind of games often at all, but the freedom is nice. Hopefully this is one of the updated mechanics that I’m sure this remake will have!

Have you played Friends/More Friends of Mineral Town? What do you think of this remake news? Let me know in the comments below! If you liked this post, please share it around.
