New Harvest Moon on its Way

on October 27, 2009 12:35 PM

Natsume will be releasing Harvest Moon: Animal Parade on November 10, 2009 for Nintendo Wii. It will retail for $49.99 and will be rated E for Everyone. If you are thinking about getting this game, reserve it now because you get a sweet plush duck from GameStop!

“There’s trouble in the once-prosperous village of Harmonica Town! Crops aren’t growing, the wind isn’t blowing, and the five elemental bells are missing. Only the power of the Harvest King can revive the land, but he’s nowhere to be found. It’s up to the player to find the five bells, awaken the Harvest King, and save the town!”

The game is promised to feature new challenges, new characters, and a variety of fun pets (which explains the “animal parade” subtitle). Activities in the game include fishing, mining, cultivating crops, and interacting with wild animals such as penguins, pandas, lions, hippos and monkeys (really? in a farming game? now I’ve seen everything). Hiro Maekawa, President and CEO of Natsume, also promises the game to be a rich and deep experience. And it better be, the game can easily be drowned out by the amazing holiday line up this year. Anyway enjoy these screen shots!
