It’s time for you to get yourself a new (and wonderful!) life in Forgotten Valley! Marvelous and XSEED have just announced that Story of Seasons: A Wonderful Life will launch on June 27th in Europe and North America. The game also launched today (January 26th) in Japan, with a Day One Update released (check out this page for details about Ver. 1.0.1).

To celebrate the release date announcement (as well as the Japanese release!), Marvelous shared a papercraft trailer:

Today’s announcement comes with a brand-new trailer brought to life entirely through papercraft artwork, showing one of the many potential paths to a wonderful life in Forgotten Valley. STORY OF SEASONS: A Wonderful Life revisits the tranquil community of Forgotten Valley where the protagonist fulfills their father’s dream of running a farm. As the seasons go by, players will find their lifelong partner, raise a child together, and watch them grow up. Will their child carry on the family’s farm legacy or find their calling somewhere else? Only time will tell…

Marvelous also shared a making of video showing how that trailer was created:

In Europe and North America, the game will get two editions:

  • Regular ($49.99)

    • 3.5” x 4” goat pocket plushie
    • large cloth poster within a custom outer box (with an original illustration by series illustrator Igusa Matsuyama)
