Story of Seasons: Friends of Mineral Town has been out on Switch in Japan since October. It’s taken a bit of time for the western release, but we’re finally getting the game in North America and Europe this summer. XSEED has gone back to the drawing board by coming up with a new English localization and implementing some changes from the Japanese edition.

XSEED revealed in a blog post that changes have been made to the “Best Friends” system in which players are able to form a lifelong partnership with a character of the same sex. For the upcoming English version, it’ll simply be called “marriage”. Additionally, “the relationship between same-sex couples will be given identical treatment to opposite-sex couples.” We also now know that the “heart” icon”, which indicates a marriage candidate’s romantic affinity for the player, “will display for all marriage candidates from the start of the game, where in the Japanese release it will only display for same-sex candidates after you confess and start dating.”

Here are a few notable excerpts from XSEED’s blog, which addresses character name changes as well:
