E3 2015: SoM and PopoloCrois: A SoS Fairytale

by Kirika on June 22nd - 2015 at 11:34:05 AM in Harvest Moon News

E3 is over but it didn’t pass without any HM and SoS news. 

The first bit of news I’ll talk about is Harvest Moon Seeds of Memories, the new title that Natsume announced a few weeks prior.  The game will be for WiiU, iOS and android.  

The game will feature the same cast from The Lost Valley.  However, the characters will feature different artwork from the first title and may even have different jobs and personalities than they did in the last game. For examples Brutus in TLV was the blacksmith who refined ore, in SoM he’ll be the carpenter instead.   It’s similar to the alternate universe style we saw in the past from HM64 to Back to Nature.

Some other things you’ll see in the new installment are:

Actual Town – named Chestnut Town

Multiple Maps

Ability to Forage

Touch Controls (mobile)

A total of Five Bachelors’ and Bachelorettes’ to woo (Hunter, Gilbert, Tony, Luke, Andrea, April, Emily, Catherine and two secret characters)

The games storyline will mostly revolve around you trying to restore everyone’s memories of the town and farm. To do so you’ll be required to do simple day-to-day tasks such as raising friendship or taking care of animals.  

Also the game will not have terrforming the new feature that was added to TLV.  Revista YUME did capture some of the live demo of it which you can check out via their youtube. Please keep in mind if you do check it out that the game is still in early development so some things you see may change for the final version.

Also, as of June 19, 2015 Harvest Moon The Lost Valley is officially out in PAL territories thanks to Rising Star Games!  Be sure to check it out if you haven’t already.  DLC for the game has already begun to come out as well.

Next up with E3 is the SoS news.  Though truthfully it’s not a full SoS game but a spin off that’s going to be localized by XSEED.  The game’s full title will be Return to PopoloCrois: A Story of Seasons Fairytale and it will be for the 3DS.  I don’t know much else about it, but feel free to check out the clip below to get a feel for the game!

Seeds of Memories?

by Kirika on June 2nd - 2015 at 05:55:40 PM in Harvest Moon News

Earlier today Natsume Inc. teased fans via social media outlets with a new logo for an upcoming game.  The image shown read, Harvest Moon Seeds of Memories.  

Currently not much is known about it yet, however, Natsume is planning on revealing more information about the upcoming game during E3 this year.  Seeds of Memories will be their second title since the break away from the Bokujou Monogatari  series in 2014. The new game will be on WiiU, ios, and PC

Also on that note, DLC for Harvest Moon The Lost Valley will be hitting again mid-June.  The DLC seems like it will include two new marriage candidates moving into Hillsville – one guy (Luke) and one woman (???).  For more information on them please be sure to check out the Natsume FaceBook page for details. 

Story of Seasons Pre-Order Bonus!

by Kirika on January 29th - 2015 at 05:14:08 PM in Harvest Moon News

It’s been awhile since I’ve checked to see if there’s been any Story of Seasons news to report, and to my surprise there is!

Nothing too major, but according to XSEED the Angora rabbit pocket plush will be available for the pre-order purchase of Story of Seasons from GameStop, Amazon, EB Games Canda and other participating retailers.  Sadly no date has been officially announced for release by XSEED however; on sites like Amazon you’ll be surprised to see a release date set for March 31, 2015. 

In the mean time for those wanting to read up on the translation process of Story of Seasons you should check out XSEED’s official Tumblr Blog. It features little bits of information on game play, story, as well as some nice screenshots to get you all hyped up. 

On a side note to any of our guests if you notice any wrong information on the site especially in game pages please do not hesitate to shoot us an e-mail at hmmofficial@gmail.com, the sooner it is pointed out the sooner we can fix it. For visitors looking for help in The Lost Valley please check out our underconstruction unoffical valley guide on the forum. 

Lost Valley Release Date!

by Kirika on October 9th - 2014 at 04:57:34 PM in Harvest Moon News

Harvest Moon: The Lost Valley got it's official release date today via the Natsume social media pages. Be sure to mark your calendars. Nov. 4, 2014 is the release which means we have 26 days left to wait! 

Pre-orders on the Natsume Store have officially opened up as well. With that being said, they're also giving the option of either the premium bonus plush Bunny or the small normal pre-order LV dog.

The dog plush is no different from the one GameStop is giving out. Those wanting the premium should know that it does cost an additional $10.00 jumping the price of the game from $29.99 to $39.99

Lost Valley should debut in the fall

by Kirika on September 8th - 2014 at 04:16:08 PM in Harvest Moon News

Just in case you haven’t been following all the news on Natsume’s upcoming title, Harvest Moon The Lost Valley, I’ve complied some links for those looking to read up on the features, characters and storyline.

PAX 2014 Interview Natsume’s Facebook | Gamesradar | Joystick | Nintendo Life | US Gamer

You can also find additional information on CeeCee's Tumblr.

No “real” date has been set for the release, but we do know thanks to the PAX interview that Natsume is hoping to have the game on the shelves by the end of October.

Pre-orders are open on most of the shops online except of the Natsume Store; once again there will be a preorder bonus plush.  The one showing up on Game Stop is of the dog from the game. Amazon didn't say if it came with the bonus but I'm just assuming it will. Please correct me if this is wrong. 

On another note players who loved the gameplay of Hometown Story should rejoice. Natsume has released an iOS app game titled Hometown Story Pocket.  What is it?  To put it bluntly it's really just a simplfied version of the 3DS title.  However it's got some major changes...It focuses only on your shop alone and keeping your customers happy.  

Those looking to give it a try should know that the app is free to play. Though it does say something about in-app purchases when you go to install it. 

Natsume´s E3 and The Lost Valley

by Kirika on June 4th - 2014 at 08:49:37 AM in Harvest Moon News

Yesterday afternoon Natsume, a worldwide developer and publisher of family-oriented video games, announced that they will be releasing a new Harvest Moon title for the 3DS system. 

Little is actually known about the game since they’re waiting to officially announce it at E3.

What we do know is that it will be named Harvest Moon The Lost Valley and they are expecting to release later this year.

Natsume has also released the stroy synopsis. It reads: Harvest Moon The Lost Valley for 3DS is the latest game in Natsume’s long-running fan-favorite series. Hiking your way through the mountains one day, you become caught in an unexpected snowstorm, and find shelter with the help of a faint voice. When you awaken, you find and help a kindly Harvest Sprite buried under the snow, who tells you all of the seasons in the valley have vanished except for winter. To return all 4 seasons to the valley, you’ll need the help of the villagers, the Harvest Sprites, the Harvest Goddess, and even the King of the Underworld! You’ve never played a Harvest Moon game quite like this!

For more information please check out the Natsume Facebook pageofficial website, and Cee Cee's Tumblr. As mentioned above more information will be disclosed at E3.
