Introduction[edit]

Ever wish you could take a stroll through Mineral Town again but have a little bit of a new flair to the game?

Now you can!

In Story of Seasons: Friends of Mineral Town, Mineral Town returns with new character designs for all the candidates and villagers. With four protagonists to choose from (two of each of the following genders mentioned) you can play as a girl or boy.

Your story starts off with your chosen protagonist visiting their grandfather's ranch near Mineral Town. This opportunity allows you to be at one with nature, as the surrounding area is alive with wildlife, and your grandfather lets you help around the ranch. You make a friend with one of the children in Mineral Town during your stay, and they see you off as you leave at the end of summer. You return to Mineral Town and find your grandfather has passed, and you inherit his farm along with a new drive to revive it to its former glory.

Mayor Thomas gladly welcomes you to your new life, and thus, your story begins! You're tasked with revitalizing the farm, connecting with the villagers and interacting with the world around Mineral Town.
