I know I’m eagerly awaiting the launch of Story of Season’s (Formerly known as Harvest Moon) latest installment, Trio of Towns. I grew up with the games and have voraciously devoured each installment, learning the preferences of each member of my town and growing both my farming empire and the relationships with townsfolk. The franchise usually includes some sort of cute plush with every preorder, and there’s still time to reserve a copy of Story of Seasons: Trio of Towns before its launch on Tuesday to receive an exclusive Capybara plush, pictured to the left.
A new trailer released yesterday features Capy-san, the in-game version of the Capybara plushie, and he has exciting news! In addition to reminding viewers about the preorder bonus, Capy-san gives us a sneak peak of unique costumes too:
“I’m so excited that STORY OF SEASONS: Trio of Towns is launching next week! I must admit I’m also looking forward to getting my paws on the “plushie” version of me as well. I heard it’s just as adorable as I am. Speaking of adorable, today’s video features costumes borrowed from my friends Mario, Luigi, Princess Peach and Toad from Super Mario Bros. These outfits let you cosplay as your favorite character AND will give you awesome abilities in the game!”
A press statement gave more details on what exactly we can expect from these cool crossover costumes:
“In a rush? Mario’s signature red and blue uniform gives your running speed a boost. Reeling in nothing but boots? Turn your fishing luck around with Luigi’s outfit and hat that’ll make others green with envy. Feel like your pal is more of a stranger than a friend? Princess Peach’s regal dress and shiny tiara will give you some of the heroine’s limitless charm, helping you make friends with residents of the trio of towns faster. Farming is exhausting, isn’t it? Like the tireless character himself, Toad’s outfit and hat will recharge your stamina automatically.”
The fact that the costumes from the Mario crossover also give unique in-game abilities is really neat too. Make sure to preorder Story of Seasons if you want your own Capy-san, and check back with Geekreply for the latest news on everything related to the franchise.
