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!

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.

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!

Congratulations, A New Beginning!

Natsume's ANB Tip List

by Kirika on December 11th - 2012 at 12:17:03 PM in Harvest Moon News

If you’ve been following Natsume’s Facebook page you might have noticed that they’ve been releasing helpful tips for playing their latest release, Harvest Moon: A New Beginning.  The list started on Nov. 8, 2012. Currently, their list has 13 tips; however, they aren’t done yet.   

For those interested, here is the current list:

#1: You can water crops twice a day to make them grow faster! A plot will "dry up" after about 10 hours.

#2: The minimum amount you need to water a crop is once every second day. It will grow very slowly.

#3: Grass doesn't need to be watered. It's also an easy way to make some fast G when you're saving up!

#4: Even if you're not "into the ladies," it's smart to woo Iroha. She'll gift you upgraded tool Blueprints if she likes you~

#5: You could give Neil milk, but fodder's cheaper and he likes it just as much. Even if you're not wooing him, he has some cool animal-related gifts if he likes you~

#6: Emma ships your products and is the mother of an absent villager. Befriend her to encourage her child to move home.

#7: Grass (Fodder) counts as a crop. Chickens count as animals. Both will come in handy~

#8: Befriend Neil for some awesome animal-related blueprints. Tending & moving livestock will be a breeze!

#9: You can unlock both floor and wall decorations for your home. The only question remains which villager has each pattern~

#10: Need someone to socialize with late at night? Soseki and the Witch Princess are both night owls, staying up past midnight.

#11: The forecast is fickle, and may vary slightly from the newspaper's predictions.

#12: Mining is hard. You'll probably want a doctor living in town before you try it...in case you hurt yourself!

#13: There is no 13th tip. Alice is superstitious.

For more updates please check out Natsume’s official Facebook page. Have any of the tips been helping you lately?

Also on a side note, A New Beginning has been released for the Nintendo eShop on the 3DS!
