So the long-awaited answer to the Marvelous vs. Natsume question has finally arrived. Story of Seasons, for those unaware, is the next in Japan’s Bokujō Monogatari series, known in the in other parts of the world as Harvest Moon. One complicated split and licensing issue later, we are seeing this as a “new” series of a separate title. But true to form, Marvelous rises to the challenge to create a game simultaneously familiar and new.
