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!
