Nevertheless, a legal battle occurred in 2015, causing the title to be changed to Story of Seasons, and Marvelous has been putting out more games in the series with that name since then.
The promotional video for Story of Seasons: A Wonderful Life was composed as though it were a book, providing an outline of the game with an emotional thread running through it. It begins with the main character arriving at the farm they have inherited and being introduced to some of the locals, including Cecilia, who was Celia in the original A Wonderful Life. As the trailer continues, they learn to look after their farm and the bond between them and Cecilia strengthens. They eventually marry and have a son who helps out on the farm and finds his own love. At the close of the video, the protagonist is elderly and looking out at their child and their spouse, holding hands and content with their life, and the book concludes with the release date of June 27.
