Nintendo of Europe announced on Twitter this morning Story of Seasons would be released in early 2016.
Originally known as Harvest Moon: Story of Seasons, the Marvellous AQL title was usually published in North America by Natsume. The two firms "parted ways" and the North American version was published by XSEED instead.
Since Natsume owns the rights to the Harvest Moon brand, the title was changed to Story of Seasons.
Story of Seasons is being published in Europe by Nintendo and will arrive on 3DS during Q1 2016.
