When you start a game like Story of Seasons: Friends of Mineral Town, you expect to become a farmer, rancher, lumberjack, or something along those lines. But we would be fooling no one if we said we weren’t at least halfway in it for the dating sim feature. SoS: Friends of Mineral Town has gorgeously drawn characters with charming personalities, each with something different to offer.
How Dating Works in Story of Seasons: Friends of Mineral Town
By speaking with and giving gifts to the Bachelors or Bachelorettes, their relationship can be improved. Check the relationship status with a character through the Relationships>>Residents menu.
Though all Bachelors and Bachelorettes can be dated, marrying them locks out other options in the game. Divorce is out of the question in this cozy farm game.
How to Get Married in Story of Seasons: Friends of Mineral Town
Before getting married, the house must be wholly upgraded. This includes having a big bed for two.
But it’s not all about setting the scene. An excellent relationship with the spouse-to-be is also required. Once the red-heart color appears, the Bachelors and Bachelorettes are more likely to accept the marriage proposal.
- For regular Bachelors and Bachelorettes, players must complete all six romantic heart events.
- For special Bachelors and Bachelorettes, players must clear all pre-marriage challenges.
Once all requirements are met, equip the Blue Feather and use it on the chosen marriage candidate.
Is There Same-Sex Marriage in Story of Seasons: Friends of Mineral Town
Since the remake’s release in 2019, same-sex marriage has been added to the game.
Though the Japanese version of the game would call same-sex spouses “Special Friends,” when the game was localized for Western audiences, it decided to do away with that term and let same-sex couples get married the same way opposite-sex couples did.
