Harvest Moon: The Lost Valley Releasing Later This Year For 3DS
Just yesterday Nastsume was teasing everyone about their work on three Nintendo titles and the impending announcements that they would be doing no sooner than E3 next week. Today though, the company went ahead and gave away one of the said announcements, which in all was pretty much speculated by everyone.
Harvest Moon: The Lost Valley is the latest entry in the series and will release for the 3DS in North America later this year. Natsume said that this new entry is a step forward for the franchise, since it’s moving into a three-dimensional plane.
“Hardcore fans will love it, players who haven’t played a Harvest Moon game in a while will want to try it out, and new players will be introduced to the unique and charming world that is Harvest Moon,” said Hiro Maekawa, President & CEO of Natsume in a press release. “But the incredibly exciting thing that really elevates the game is that while it does get back to what everyone loves about the early games, it also innovates in a way that no Harvest Moon game ever has.”
The new title will feature a fully customizable world where players can design their fields in any way they want. “From a field full of tulips like you might see in Holland, to a valley filled with water like Venice, the choice is up to you. You’ve never played a Harvest Moon game quite like this!” concluded the press release.
Harvest Moon: The Lost Valley will make its debut at E3 next week where we’ll see first hand how the game looks and operates.
