Announced in the Nintendo Direct Mini on June 28, 2022, details of Doraemon Story of Seasons Friends of the Great Kingdom are still a little scarce.
It is the follow-up to Doraemon: Story of Seasons, which got a Western release back in 2019. Doraemon is a huge franchise over in Japan and is gaining more traction, which led to the second game getting a release worldwide. This time, Doraemon and Noby find themselves on a new planet, and help out by building a farm. Your mission is to plow, harvest, plant, and tend to your hearts' content. Relax with friends and expand your farm far and wide.
If you're a fan of farming and crafting games, then we have some recommendations for you. Recently released Harvestella promises an in-depth rural adventure, as does Lightyear Frontier - this time in space! For something a bit closer to home, Spirittea fills a cozy set of requirements.
