If you enjoy all things agricultural and planting, prepare for an incoming Harvest Moon title in the near future.
Revealed with the first details in an issue of Famitsu, Marvelous AQL will be heading on through with a new Harvest Moon title coming to the 3DS next Feburary, titled Bokujo Monogatari: Tsunagari Shintenchi (roughly translating to Harvest Moon: Connecting New Lands). After following the release of Harvest Moon: A New Beginning early last year, the new Harvest Moon title will seem to incorporate many of the 3DS’s online and local multiplayer features and StreetPass, such as trading items or other data between friends, or going to visit other players’ farms. In addition, the game will be adding other new enhancements and features, such as a “Safari” area that will allow a wider range of care and options to interact with the game’s animals and livestock.
Although we can expect Bokujo Monogatari: Tsunagari Shintenchi to release in Japan this coming February, there’s still no word yet on whether we’ll also be seeing a US release: stay tuned in the meantime, you’ll get back on the farm soon enough.
