XSEED gave fans an update on their blog today providing details for their game Story of Seasons: Trio of Towns, coming to Nintendo 3DS on February 28 in North America and Europe.
The update provides fans a look at all the different animals, or “Furmiliar”, available in the game and how they will assist the player with their farming duties. Like in the previous games, pets still have the ability to herd and find items. Also, depending on which pet you choose, townspeople will react differently during interactions.
Here’s a list of dogs and cats:
- Great Pyrenees
- (German) Shepherd
- Tibetan Mastiff
- Border Collie
- Jack Russell (Terrier)
- Shorthair Cat
- Tabby Cat
- Black Cat
- Maine Coon
- Scottish Fold
- White Cat
Furthermore, pets have a StreetPass function that has your pet journey into other worlds and collect items from other players. Additionally, you might see another player’s pet in your world.
Sadly, fans asking to see Hamtaro as a pet will be let down as unforeseeable complications made it impossible to get the rights. However, this goes beyond licensing fee problems as the publisher adds “I will say that you’ll be hard-pressed to find new, official Hamtaro merchandise on sale in this part of the world.”
Earlier today, XSEED released new screenshots and a trailer to celebrate the release date.
