While Story of Seasons: Trio of Towns may not bring anything much new to the Story of Seasons series, it does manage to pack a lot in to this game, and what it does, it does well. Three towns to deal with adds variety and a little more complexity to counter the mundane, but highly enjoyable, farming chores. Packed with charm and the freedom to approach the game however the player sees fit, Story of Seasons: Trio of Towns is the largest and most entertaining game of the series so far, perfect for both newcomers and veteran farmers. Life on the farm may be relaxing, but it’s never dull.

From fishing to livestock to love interests to raising pets and chatting up locals, Trio of Towns is loaded with things to do. It’s wonderful how feature-packed and loaded with things to do that this game is. 3DS is getting a bit long in the tooth, but it would be hard to guess that when fresh games like Trio of Towns keep popping up and practically forcing me to tote the handheld along with me everywhere that I go. Harvest Moon turned 20 this year, and with absolute respect for Natsume’s own efforts, Trio of Towns is a very apropos way of celebrating that milestone. It’s quirky and charming in the way that the best installments in the series are beloved for, and I’m still plucking away at my farm today. Plus… Mario costumes. Seriously, what more do you need?! Go give Trio of Towns a look, folks, it’s a winner.

We would strongly recommend that you pick this up even if it only mildly interests you; the mechanics here are quite easy for newcomers to pick up, and the game does a great job of deepening things and leaving much of the path forward open to player choice. For the 20th anniversary of Harvest Moon, fans couldn't have asked for a better game, even if legal matters mean that it's not - officially - part of the celebrations.

I found myself thinking about my daily farming routine in Story of Seasons: Trio of Towns even when I wasn't playing it. Since there's never any feeling of the grim spectre of Father Time looming large and there are enough random events to shake up the daily routine, doing my virtual chores in these charming and beautiful towns and unlocking a steady stream of rewards is relaxing, despite some annoyances with unnecessary travel and unskippable animations. And since the only requirement of Trio of Towns is to prove that farm life is a noble life, the pressure to succeed is never daunting.

Moins innovant qu'il n'y paraît au premier abord, Trio of Towns apporte tout de même quelques idées bienvenues au sein d'un genre assez frileux sur la question du changement. Nous saluerons ainsi l'ajout des jobs d'intérim, suffisamment courts pour compenser un gameplay sommaire, mais qui ont le mérite d'apporter un soupçon de variété dans vos journées et d'avoir un impact intéressant sur vos parties. La présence de 3 villes contribue aussi à apporter plus de diversité dans les paysages explorés, bien que leur apport s'avère plus limité en dehors de ce point. Enfin, les mécaniques de jeux s'avèrent suffisamment denses et addictives pour justifier de se plonger une nouvelle fois pendant des dizaines d'heures au cœur de cette nouvelle mouture, malgré un démarrage très poussif. Moins surprenant que son prédécesseur, cet épisode ravira avant tout les fans acharnés de la série ou les joueurs intéressés par le concept et n'ayant pas posés leurs mains sur Story of Seasons premier du nom.

The frustration with its emphasis on mining gems aside, Story of Seasons is still a lot of fun as a cute and leisurely game. However, this sequel took more steps backwards than forwards and I'm hoping it remedies these poor decisions in the next installment.

Regardless, Trio of Towns is an installment that does justice to the legacy of the series, and hopefully one that's on the road of better things to come. I loved the characters, and the art style certainly ranks up there as one of my favorites yet. The tell-tale sign I enjoyed any Harvest Moon game is that I’ll pick it back up after months of neglecting my farm. I think I can safely say, Trio of Towns will be one I revisit. With planned DLC, recipes to be made, and the overwhelming need to pet every dog in this game, I’ll be back to it soon.

Mit Story of Seasons: Trio of Towns führt Marvelous seine bekannte Harvest-Moon-Tradition fort und lässt angehende Anime-Bauern oder -Bäurinnen ihren eigenen Hof aufbauen, Felder bewirtschaften, Tiere halten und Freundschaften pflegen. Nebenbei kann man sich auch wieder als Angler, Koch oder Kurier verdingen. Neu ist lediglich, dass man dieses Mal gleich mit drei unterschiedlichen Städten und deren Einwohnern interagieren kann, indem man lokale Besonderheiten geschickt in den wetter- und jahreszeitenbedingten Farmalltag einbindet. Alles charmant präsentiert, aber spielerisch weitestgehend unspektakulär und oft auch monoton - besonders das tägliche Gießen. Die als zusätzliche Einnahmequelle angebotenen Minispiele wie Holz hacken, Unkraut jäten oder Fischreusen leeren sind fast schon eine Farce. Da waren Rune Factory oder Return to PopoloCrois mit ihren eingeflochtenen Abenteurerelementen längst weiter.
