Return to PopoloCrois: A Story of Seasons Fairytale
RETURN TO POPOLOCROIS: 
A STORY OF SEASONS FAIRYTALE,
NOW AVAILABLE in North America!

We are excited to announce that the farming-flavored turn-based RPG, Return to PopoloCrois: A STORY OF SEASONS Fairytale, is now available in North America exclusively for the Nintendo 3DS™ family of systems. Produced by creative masterminds Yohsuke Tamori (creator of PopoloCrois Story) and Yoshifumi Hashimoto (longtime producer of the Bokujou Monogatari/STORY OF SEASONS and Rune Factory franchises), this comprehensive crossover features classically-styled RPG gameplay and game-spanning life simulation elements equally enjoyable to both veterans and newcomers to either series.
Return to PopoloCrois: A STORY OF SEASONS Fairytale also marks the return of the PopoloCrois series to the West after a 10 year hiatus.

About

Based on the Japanese PopoloCrois Story comic book series — which fans can get a taste of in English via our product website a www.returntopopolocrois.com/ — and featuring elements from the wildly successful Bokujo Monogatari farming and life simulation series now known as STORY OF SEASONS in the West, Return to PopoloCrois: A STORY OF SEASONS Fairytale hearkens back to the golden age of RPGs with its tactical, turn-based combat and towns full of interesting NPCs who contribute to a heartwarming narrative about friendship, forgiveness, and the bounty of the earth.

Ample farming and life simulation elements are also on offer à la STORY OF SEASONS, including real-time crop-raising, bug-catching, rock-quarrying, item synthesis, and relationship forging. Players can collect over 600 items and undertake nearly 100 quests throughout the game, supplementing its 25+ hour main story with nearly unlimited potential for replayability. StreetPass™ features are also present, allowing players to connect with one another and earn bonus items through treasure-hunting.

    This game is pretty neat. It’s a run of the mill RPG, but it has TONS of charm to make up for it. Dual audio is always a plus, and even the English has as much voice acting as the Japanese (at least what I’ve played so far). I will say that some of the English voice acting is pretty bad though.

    The story of seasons aspect plays second banana here, not necessary a bad thing though..My only real gripe is that battles look pretty bad unless you’re performing a special move. Definitely worth checking out, but I wouldn’t go rushing to it just yet.

      I’m definitely interested in this title. Story of Seasons is a pleasant, relaxing game, and mixing it with Popolocrois makes it like a charming sort of Rune Factory to me. It’s making me want to actually play Popolocrois, which I’ve had for ages and still haven’t gotten around to playing…
