Nintendo Switch games list has been given a boost, with a brand new exclusive game announced for 2019.
The Nintendo Switch this year will be getting a remake of a much loved handheld classic from the early noughts.
Harvest Moon Friends of Mineral Town, which was released on the Game Boy Advance in 2003, is getting re-made for the Nintendo Switch.
The news was announced in Japanese gaming magazine Famitsu (via Gematsu), with the new Nintendo Switch game coming out in October.
At the moment the Friends of Mineral Town remake has only been given a Japanese release, with no words on when or if it’ll hit the West.
The new version of Harvest Moon Friends of Mineral Town will also not feature the Harvest Moon moniker.
That’s because the series original developer Marvellous split from publisher Natsume back in 2012.
Natsume retained the rights to the Harvest Moon series, while Marvellous went on to start their own rival farming series – Story of Seasons.
So, the upcoming GBA remake will instead be called Story of Seasons: Reunion in Mineral Town.
A few screenshots have been published so far in Famitsu of the remake, which retains the typical cutesy graphics style seen in past games.
For those who haven’t played these titles before, classic Harvest Moon games are notorious for being time sinks.
The Harvest Moon games from the 8-Bit and 16-Bit eras on the Game Boy and SNES were extremely addictive games that were difficult to put down.
These titles helped pave the way for modern day farming sims such as Stardew Valley.
Marvellous are also working on Rune Factory 4 and Rune Factory 5 which are coming to the Nintendo Switch.
They’re also putting the finishing touches to Daemon X Machina, the mech action adventure game for the Switch from Armored Core producer Kenichiro Tsukuda.
