PoPoLoCrois: Farm Story's Second Trailer Is Just As Cute As The First
Did you have any doubt that it would be?
We've been talking a lot about PoPoLoCrois: Farm Story over the past week or so. You're right if you want to call us out for that. But to be fair, now's the time all the details are starting to really trickle out. This second trailer also really nails the kind of mood the game's going for, so I can't fault it. Just look how cute it is! It's headed for release in Japan on June 18, but given the localizations of Story of Seasons and Harvest Moon: The Lost Valley, it's not too far out of the realm of possibility that we could see this coming over too.
Aside from the information we can discern from the videos we've been seeing, here are some of the details we know so far. It's going to be a light-humored tale that focuses on Prince Pietro, who just turned ten yeas old, and his encounters in the world of PoPoLoCrois. While the game will have farming aspects, it will focus on a more traditional RPG experience while you follow Pietro on his adventure to save the world.
The battle system will be command-based and players' attacks and skills will depend on the type of weapon equipped. The party members revealed so far are Pietro, a forest witch named Narcia, the lawful good White Knight, and the "demon lord of evil" GamiGami Devil. As players progress they will open up the farming aspect, which will work similarly to past Harvest Moon games.
PoPoLoCrois is one of the games I consistently went to play on my PSP, but never could truly get into until an ice storm set in and I was forced to use either my DS or my softmodded PSP for entertainment. I've always loved Harvest Moon and games of that ilk though, so this looks right up my alley. Anyone else out there interested in giving it a go?
