The latest game in the Harvest Moon franchise, The Lost Valley is out next month.
Taka Maekawa, Producer of Harvest Moon: The Lost Valley, has said "From the moment we announced the newest Harvest Moon title at E3, we’ve been working hard to bring players an exciting game, We’ve taken 17 years of fan feedback and the passion of the Natsume staff and poured both into this title."
It sounds to us like some serious effort has gone into this game so it will certainly be one to look out for, especially if you are a fan of the previous games or other RPG Sims such as Animal Crossing or Farm Simulator.
The plot of the game focuses on the titular Lost Valley which has been cursed to live in a perpetual Winter. The player will need to discover the source of the curse as well as tracking down the Harvest Goddess and Harvest Sprites who have vanished. In order to do this you will have to create your own fully customisable world by planting crops, raising cattle, making friends with the locals, finding a wife and even having children to unlock the seven Harvest Sprites, Harvest Goddess and Harvest God to restore the seasons in The Lost Valley.
Also available for pre-order is the Harvest Moon: The Lost Valley Collector’s Edition, that come with a 12" rabbit plushie, one of the wild animals within the Lost Valley, a full set of premium plushies created by Multiverse Studio, Inc. will be available exclusively via the Natsume Online Store.
