Title: New Harvest Moon Games
Post by: Varsity on January 17, 2006, 08:48:57 am
Heh, well it looks like our favorite farmer is back!

(I put this in portable gaming because the newer games are for the portable systems)

Jack has been in a few past games and everybody loved all of them, except maybe a flop or two (read: Save the Homeland).  But now we will soon be able to enjoy Jack (...) all over again!

First of all is Harvest Moon Online, no its not a fan-made game like the one in my sig, but one actually announced by the developers (Marvelous Interactive).  Not much info on it now, but at least we know they're working on it.

And the last one isn't really all that new, but it still hasn't made its way to the english speaking countries, Harvest Moon DS (Sprite Station)  It uses that funky little touch screen to bring a new splash to your Harvest Moon gaming!

Wow that sure is alot of new Harvest Moons, I'm glad they're coming out with alot of them, get Harvest Moon into the spot light.

Okay okay, sorry for the long post, but I will mention another game called:  Rune Factory. The developers (Not Marvelous Interactive) say this will be like Harvest Moon, but you wield a sword, should have online capabilities as well!

Harvest Moon is superb.


I hope that can match that of Harvest Moon 64.

Harvest Moon Online would be interesting.  It would probably be a lot like Indiana though...

yeah, sad that the fan made one died, though i suppose it was the right thing to do, and i was getting bored waiting on it

if they have just started work on the mmo though it could be at least 5 years b4 we see anything, though i imagine that since its been annouced its pretty far on in its dev cycle

Well, going to bump an ancient thread because I don't feel comfortable making a new thread.

Harvest Moon: Sunshine Islands is set to come out this fall. It seems to be a rehashed Island of Happiness. If they fix the control scheme, I can see myself enjoying it.

"Harvest Moon: To the Wind's Bazaar" Is the predicted name of the next DS title. It was released in Japan last December, so we'll probably see it next summer.

Yay, our yearly Harvest Moon game is here. They need to make these less frequently... seriously.

I tend to get bored of the game about 3 or 4 months in... from excessive playing and seeing all the content. Doesn't bother me much.
