ANB Shipping Today!

So if you haven’t heard yet, Natsume gave a big surprise to their fans today by announcing that they will begin shipping pre-orders for Harvest Moon 3DS: A New Beginning!

The game was originally scheduled for a November 6, 2012 release, however, got changed last night to October 19, 2012.  People who pre-ordered from the Natsume Inc., Store received an e-mail last night stating the following changes:

“Thank you for ordering on Natsume Inc.. The release date for the preorder product has changed. The product listed below will now be available on October 19, 2012.”

About 21 minutes ago Natsume made another official statement on their Facebook page saying:

“Why wait? We have begun shipping Harvest Moon: A New Beginning – to retail stores and pre-orders from our site. SURPRISE! HM ANB now has a soft release date, meaning you might start seeing it in stores as early as next week. In addition, we are processing and shipping pre-orders starting today. Note: NOT ALL PRE ORDERS WILL SHIP TODAY (There’s A LOT!). We'll have more information a little later today on our good news" – Natsume

So for people who pre-ordered you should be on the look out!  For those who haven’t placed orders, you can still do so either at the retailers or the Natsume Store – to my knowledge the limited edition 15th anniversary cow is still available until October 29.

Return to Heartflame this October

Hey guys just wanted to let you know that on Oct. 2, 2012 Innocent Life: A Futuristic Harvest Moon was officially re-released, this time on the Playstation Network for $9.99 in U.S. currency. It’s the Playstation 2 version of the game – though I don’t think there was much of a difference between the PS2 or the PSP one.

If you’ve never heard of the game here’s some background as well story plot.

“All the shiny technology in the world can’t save the inhabitants of Heartflame Island.  That’s because an ancient curse smolders among the shadows of a nearby volcano.  Locals whisper about an old legend that might break the curse, but it takes someone other than a human to unlock the secrets – and that someone most conquer the crumbling ruins forgotten by time. That someone is you – the android made by Dr. Hope." - from the 2008 ps2 game box.

The PSP game officially launched on April 27, 2006 in Japan and followed in the States by May 2007.  The PS2 Special Edition followed quickly afterwards and was released in the States by early 2008.

Holy Cow!

Hey guys, remember how it was Harvest Moon’s 15th anniversary not too long ago?  If so then you might be interested in Natsume’s online shop pre-order for Harvest Moon A New Beginning. 

They’re still issuing the Yak plushie with the regular purchase of $39.99, however if you decide to spend an extra $10 and you feel that you can live without that cute little Yak, you can pre-order the 15th anniversary 12” Cow Plushie for the first time ever!  If you haven’t preordered elsewhere why not check out the Natsume Store?

Message Board 4.0

by Kirika on September 20th - 2012 at 02:20:05 PM in Forum News

Well after weeks of coding, graphics, and re-coloring I'm proud to say that 4.0 is officially here. If you all remember awhile back on the chat I mentioned a surprise and today I launched it. 

The skin includes several new codes that help make it organized so that we can give you optimum community experience. With everything having a place.

You'll be able to easily find the latest Harvest Moon news, website news, RP news, and even be able to access RP information topics with a click of a button via the navigation menu. (We will be including RP weather in the list soon).

But that's not all. If you notice to the left you'll see a section for member and rp character spotlights. For the moment the admin team has picked a member who we believe is worthy of being member of the months since he's been posting around in the rp and interacting with others when he has a chance. So congratulations Yeee5!

In the future however, we will be allowing fellow members to get involved and nominate their own people. The users with the most votes will be placed in then for 2 months time. The same is going to be done with RP characters. We hope that 2 months is enough to get to know one another to the point where everyone is comfortable. ^_^
