Doraemon Story of Seasons: Friends of The Great Kingdom launches on November 2

Bandai Namco has announced the release date for Doraemon Story of Seasons: Friends of The Great Kingdom in Japan and Asia. The new sequel will be available on November 2. The company had earlier revealed the release date in Japan, but the Southeast Asian branch just confirmed that the region would receive the game on the same day.

The press release also revealed bonus items that will be available with early physical copies or digital pre-orders. The Summer Wear Set will contain costumes for the 5 main Doraemon characters from the original manga and anime series. The Home Furniture Set will add 3 new items exclusively for the Switch & PS5 versions. And the physical-exclusive Sweet Seeds Set will provide more seeds to plant early.

Bandai Namco will also sell a Digital Deluxe Edition of the game. It will contain a bonus Seasonal Vegetables Seeds Set as a substitute for the aforementioned Sweet Seeds Set. This edition will also come with an 80-track digital soundtrack and the game's season pass for future post-release DLC.

Friends of The Great Kingdom was originally revealed at the June 2022 Nintendo Direct. In the West, this game will have subtitles in English, Spanish, and German, as announced on the Nintendo UK webpage. The Southeast Asian press releases also confirmed more subtitles in Thai and Indonesian. The latter is especially noteworthy, as this will be the first-ever Bandai Namco title to feature an official subtitle for the language, and also considering how Doraemon is a largely popular franchise in Indonesia.
