Natsume sent out a press release today to announce four new DLC packages for Harvest Moon: Skytree Village. The game originally came out in November for the 3DS of last year and has gotten a number of downloadable content since January. This latest set of post-release content is available now with the paid packs retailing at £3.99 (unfortunately the North American price was not given).
The free DLC focus on decorative items for furnishing your in game property. The ‘Farm Decoration Set’ is obviously catered for your outdoor harvesting activities with new building options and tools. The other pack, the ‘Harvest Sprite Statue Set’, adds some rocky and marble buds to player’s collections.
Obviously the paid downloadable content adds more content for Harvest Moon: Skytree Village. The two DLC sets are similar with the self-explanatory ‘New Female NPC Set’ and ‘New Male NPC Set’. Each includes a new NPC to woo with Nova and Edmund taking up the roles. The female bachelor is a resident of the underworld who is very unfamiliar with the above world culture. She is kind despite her place of origin but she can be quite focused when needed. The male bachelor is a respected mage with an introspective personality. The reason for his return to Skytree is a mystery that the player will have to discover on their own.
For those who may have forgotten, the press release had this summary of the story and features of the game:
“Times have changed in the land known as the Oasis of the Harvest Goddess. Many people use to live in Skytree Village, and the land was lush and green. However, the power of the Harvest Goddess gradually began to wane, and the land became parched and dry.”
