The farming series known in Japan as Bokujo Monogatari (which was originally Harvest Moon in the West before Marvelous started self-publishing the game) is getting its next entry in the West as Story of Seasons: Trio of Towns fairly soon.
XSEED has announced that the game will be hitting 3DS on February 28 and will be getting a pocket plushie of the new in-game capybara pet with pre-orders.
Also of note -- costumes based on Nintendo's Mario, Luigi, Peach, and Toad will also make an appearance in the game. Each will have a special effect on the main character as listed below:
Mario's outfit and hat: Gives a running speed boost
Luigi's outfit and hat: Improves luck at fishing
Princess Peach's Dress and Tiara: Makes you better friends with people
Toad's outfit: Recharges stamina over time
Trio of Towns' main hook gives the player three unique locales to explore as they look for new ways to grow crops and such. Each town will also offer its own crops, potential love interests, animals, festivals, and more.
