Connect to the New Land's Japanese Release!

by Kirika on March 1st - 2014 at 07:56:01 PM in Harvest Moon News

So the new Harvest Moon game, Connect to the New Land, for the Nintendo 3DS was released in Japan on Feb. 27.

At the moment there is no U.S.or European release date. That being said the Meadow will not be starting any game pages on the site for it because I personally do not want to read up on it.

For those wanting to spoil themselves with information though you can watch a Let’s Play by LinandKo over on YouTube. While the game is in Japanese they are talking in English to try and explain a few things so don't worry if you don't understand it. At the moment they have three parts up.

Connect to the New Land in 2014!

by Kirika on October 10th - 2013 at 09:35:08 AM in Harvest Moon News

A new Harvest Moon game is being planned for Japanese release in Feb. 2014.

The new game will be for the Nintendo 3DS. The game, from what I’ve is said to be called Connect to the New Land or Linking to the New World. 

Based on the images that have surfaced it seems to have similar art and game play graphics to ANB. Below are a few features that that game is said to have.

 

  • Recurring characters from the past
  • 3x3 plots
  • Players will be able to trade items and will also be able to visit each other’s towns (almost like AC:NL style is what I’m personally picturing)
  • This game will offer new animals to assist, and the types of wild animals that appear in the Safari will increase as the story advances
  • Some new animals will be: Angora rabbits, parrots and reindeer

If you’re still curious please check out the official Japanese article on Famitsu. You can also read up on the game at Gematsu and GoNintendo. If you want to chat in the forums for the new game please make sure to mark the post with CttNW.

Only 18 Days to Go!

by Kirika on October 3rd - 2013 at 03:27:40 PM in Harvest Moon News

Have some new news guys, though it’s not really about Harvest Moon.  Instead it’s about the upcoming release of Hometown Story.

According to Natsume’s official Facebook the U.S. release date for the game will be in two-weeks time on Oct. 22, 2013.  Currently you can pre-order the game from your local Gamestop, Amazon, and the Natsume Store (coming soon). 

Each pre-order bonus, the Ember plushie, will be different depending on where you get the game from.   Gamestop will carry the green one, Amazon the red, and Natsume will be yellow.  The special blue Ember was only available at E3 and will not be up for grabs in the bonuses.

On another note, Rune Factory 4 on the 3DS was also released on Tuesday, Oct. 1 for the 3DS. Happy gaming guys.

Kickin´ It Oldschool

If you haven’t heard by now, Harvest Moon GBC was officially released in Europe via the Nintendo eShop on March 28, 2013.

However, if you’re in the states, don’t despair.You can expect to see the game in the shop in April. No specific date had been released as of yet.

 

The game was last released in America 15 years ago. Can't believe it's been that long!
