XSEED Games has announced that the next Harvest Moon game titled Story of Seasons will be coming out in the US for 3DS on March 31st.

Unfortunately, there's no release date for the European launch as of yet. We'll let you know when one does arrive.

Story of the Seasons should have everything you expect from the popular farming sim series it's a part of. You can plant crops, tend to animals, and date villagers.

What it does add is online co-op so you can farm with a friend. And a team-up with Nintendo means you can plant iconic mushrooms and flowers.

You can find out more about Story of Seasons in our hands-on preview of the game from last year.

As we've noted before, the reason that this Harvest Moon game is called Story of Seasons is due to a legal issue.

Basically, XSEED has publishing rights of the franchise but Natsume owns the Harvest Moon name.
