    Dive into the soil of a land corrupted by darkness. Restore life, fight evil, save the day, and return to PopoloCrois!

    Its Prince Pietro's 13th birthday, and all the people of PopoloCrois have come out to celebrate! But among them is a very special guest: Marmela, a representative from an otherworldly kingdom called Galariland. Her country has been ravaged by shadowy creatures who corrupt the soil, preventing crops from growing -- and since this same phenomenon has been occurring in PopoloCrois as well, the king now seeks her counsel.

    Her expert opinion? Prince Pietro should visit Galariland personally as an ambassador for PopoloCrois, to see the damage first-hand and learn all the ways the Galari people are fighting back. But once he's there, he finds there's no way home, and his princely name holds little sway over the long-suffering people of this new world.

    It is up to you, as Prince Pietro, to make a life for yourself in Galariland while seeking a way home, doing everything you can in the meantime to cultivate the earth and new friendships alike.

    A fantastical fairytale adventure awaits!

    PopoloCrois keeps the 3DS system's RPG momentum going.

    Return to PopoloCrois: A Story of Seasons Fairytale is a nice blend of RPG and farming simulation. While it can be a bit on the easy side at times, it didn't get to the point where I was getting bored or felt it was too easy.

    Some generic plots and sound issues don’t detract too much from a fairly strong RPG/farming hybrid.

    Innovative in some ways and a charming combination of farming simulation and JRPG. Not the classic adventure game that you may expect.

    Besides a few odd choices that don't affect the overall quality, Return to PopoloCrois is a nice, simple, and short RPG.

    It plays like a nice home cooked meal and is fun even though clearly simplified as both an RPG and a farming simulator.

    The biggest problem for Return to PopoloCrois: A Story of Seasons Fairytale rests in the fact that it tries to be two things, but is only going halfway with both, something that creates an experience that will leave most people longing for more.

    A very simple and minimal game that any young RPG fan would enjoy. Although too simple you must play with the intent of wanting to play. Great gem!

    Great game, very underrated. This is standard jrpg, nothing special with the combat system but everything is so well done with charming story.Great game, very underrated.
