Today the South-East Asian branch of Bandai Namco Entertainment released an English trailer for the upcoming localized release of Doraemon Story of Seasons.
The trailer focuses on the interactions with local NPCs, that can be done in several ways. You can greet them every day to improve the relationship, but gifting seems to be the name of the game.
If you give them gifts they like (including produce or even fish you get in the river) the relationship will improve, and you may even get a gift in exchange.
When you’re close enough, events will be triggered, and some villagers may be holding on some of Doraemon’s lost gadgets, willing to part with them if you appease them.
Doraemon Story of Seasons is published by Bandai Namco and co-developed by Marvelous Entertainment and Brownies. If you’re unfamiliar with it, it’s basically a match made in heaven between the Story of Seasons series by Marvelous and the old and glorious Doraemon anime series.
You can check out the trailer below and see what it looks like, with a handy explanation of the features in English (even if the menus are still in Japanese. Of course they’ll be localized at release).
If you want to see more of the game, you can enjoy recent commercial for the Japanese release (which was released on June 13 for Switch only), alongside another recent trailer, a second video, and the first one released for the western version.
The game will launch in North America and Europe for Nintendo Switch and PC in fall 2019.
