PoPoLoCrois Farm Story Charms Available At Special Event
For Japanese gamers only, but this is a game you should keep your eye on.
Marvelous' PoPoLoCrois Farm Story is a 3DS crossover between PoPoLoCrois and Harvest Moon, but we haven't heard much about it over the past year or so up until the last few months. And while a Western release still isn't certain, Japanese gamers have something awesome to look forward with a special event coming up.
On May 23rd, gamers can head over to WonderGOO Tsukuba in Japan and pick up one of the special keychains above as well as participate in a photo session with Prince Pietro! The game will focus on Pietro of the PoPoLoCrois saga as he's taken away by a mysterious woman who doesn't live in the PoPoLoCrois kingdom. Players will explore the country of Galariland, which is split up into four areas with different seasons. Based on a perennial Japanese favorite manga and anime series, this Harvest Moon-inspired adventure is looking more and more delightful. Although we've seen plenty of great looking screens, only recently have any concrete details emerged that we could really sink our teeth into.
Details on the upcoming PoPoLoCrois Farm Story are as below, and it sounds like combat is going to be a fairly standard affair. Attacks will be command-based, where you'll perform actions based on when an on-screen gauge fills up. When you've got energy to do so, you can attack, heal, and perform other actions in battle. You can also use "special skills" a la regular magical attacks and defense abilities that you'd normally see in RPGs. There'll also be several quests you can complete along the way. We're looking forward to giving this game a try, so we'll be covering more details on it as they surface.
For now, soak up the cuteness of these charms and pray they make it to eBay if you're a big PoPoLoCrois fan!
