New news:

New Harvest Moon Is A Lot Like Minecraft

(IMG:http://www.siliconera.com/wordpress/wp-content/uploads/2014/06/hmoon1_thumb.jpg)

I played Harvest Moon 3D: The Lost Valley, Natsume's internally developed Harvest Moon game. The title has been in development for over two years at Natsume's Tokyo office.



One of the key takeaways from speaking with Natsume is they looked at what were the most popular selling Harvest Moon games. Those were Harvest Moon: Back to Nature for PsOne, Harvest Moon: Friends of Mineral Town for Game Boy Advance, and Harvest Moon 64. From there, Natsume looked at common elements in those titles, analyzed media reviews, and listened to fan feedback to guide development for The Lost Valley.


Visually, Harvest Moon 3D: The Lost Valley looks more like Harvest Moon: Back to Nature with super deformed characters. The world has a blocky feel to it, but there's a good reason for that. Harvest Moon 3D: The Lost Valley feels like Minecraft with farming.


Players can dig up ground all the way down to water and stack ground to make mountains. The demo had a mountain one of the producers built. I made a little winding staircase in about a minute. Building is easy to do, you bring up a menu and press B to dig (lower the terrain's height) or X to fill (increase height). The catch is you need resources to build. Each time you dig up ground you gain one soil unit, which you can use to fill land. There are other materials like lumber, stone, wool, and ultimate wool too. Another interesting tidbit is players can build bridges.


(IMG:http://www.siliconera.com/wordpress/wp-content/uploads/2014/06/hmoon2_thumb.jpg)


It's possible to plant crops at the apex of a player made hill. Although, it isn't clear why you would do that at this point. The game has an invisible wall that protects famers from falling more than two squares. You can also dig a river nearby you to fish in if you don't want to walk far.

Harvest Moon 3D: The Lost Valley also changes how the rucksack works. In previous games, players have to equip a tool to use it and if you want to switch tools you have to go through menus. The Lost Valley makes the A button the all purpose tool button. Once you place a tool in the rucksack, the game will automatically use that tool when you need it. So, you don't have to switch between the shovel or axe you can just press A to terraform your farmland.

Harvest Moon 3D: The Lost Valley has animals to care for. I saw sheep, cows, and a pet dog. Players can also choose to be a boy or girl and, yes, the game has a marriage system. We didn't get details about that, but I jotted down the names of NPCs – Hanna, Iris, Catherine, Gilbert, Hunter, Emily, Tony, and April – which may be bachelors and bachelorettes. One of the characters is a mad scientist. Another character is a wizard and the game has a bard too.

Natsume says they still have more to talk about when it comes to Harvest Moon: The Lost Valley. We should find out more soon since the game is slated for release this fall on Nintendo 3DS.

Harvest Moon: The Lost Valley Will Have Downloadable Content


Harvest Moon: The Lost Valley will have downloadable content, Natsume revealed to Siliconera on the E3 show floor earlier today.

Graham Markay, Vice President, said that players will be able to access both free and paid DLC for the upcoming Nintendo 3DS game.

Natsume's plan is to expand the life of Harvest Moon 3D: The Lost Valley beyond the story or when players get married, which could be very interesting.

Harvest Moon: The Lost Valley will be available later this year for Nintendo 3DS. In case you missed them, you can catch up with our hands-on impressions of the game.

I still feel very weird.

I wish the original series kept the "Harvest Moon" title and this was "Story of Seasons", then I probably wouldn't feel so........violated.

The Minecraft turn seems interesting me, sounds like they tried to make it as customisable as they could.

I'm not sure how I feel about the art-style, it seems a bit TOO chibi. I think that is my bias factoring in, so I'm going to have to see what reviewers say about the game. :)

In all honesty the graphics aren't great, I think we can agree on that. But I'm still waiting to hear how this minecraft style of Harvest Moon would work out.

You can watch the video below. Spencer wasn't kidding when he said it played like Minecraft.

Harvest Moon: The Lost Valley will be released later this year in North America. The game has been confirmed for release in Europe as well, but has no release window yet.

Harvest Moon game what's questions to ask in an interview. (IMG:style_emoticons/default/thinking_darth.gif)

QUOTE
In Harvest Moon: The Lost Valley, Animals Are More Interesting



When Natsume first began work on Harvest Moon: The Lost Valley, they had a code name for it: Back to Basics. This is the philosophy that has been applied to many aspects of the game, the developer said in an e-mail to Siliconera this morning.

Producer Taku Maekawa says that this didn’t just involve cutting down on the animals in the game, which are now limited to cows, sheep, chickens and horses. Instead, the goal was also to give each animal its own traits, called “skills”. Now, you can seek out animals with the traits you feel fit your playstyle best.

Here are two examples of some of the animal traits you’ll find in the game:

Winter/Spring/Summer/Fall – This season is the animal’s favorite! Their affection level will go up faster in that season.

Elegant – These animals really, really hate being dirty! You’ll get a big affection bonus when you brush them. The higher an animal’s affection, the higher quality products they’ll produce, as well as a higher quantity of that product!


If you find you like a particular trait, you can breed that particular animal and acquire the same skill over and over. You can also breed them into a rare, “super” version of that skill. Here’s an example of how some skills level up in the game:

Great Goods becomes High-Quality Goods: These animals have a strong and powerful body! Because of that, they will sometimes produce higher-quality products.

More Goods becomes Super Goods: These animals are gifted with fantastic health! Because of that, they will sometimes produce a higher quantity of products.

Skills can also be taught in Harvest Moon: The Lost Valley. You can teach animals unique skills through a wide variety of animal feed.

Harvest Moon: The Lost Valley Pre-Orders Will Come With A Dog Plushie

As suspected, Harvest Moon: The Lost Valley will come with a dog plushie as a pre-order bonus. Natsume have shared a list of retailers that currently have the game (with and without the plushie) available for pre-order on their Tumblr blog.

Additionally, Natsume have revealed a new character that will be present in The Lost Valley. Gilbert (below) is one of the game’s bachelors, and is a wanderer that will teach you the art of fishing in the game. He also speaks in rhyme.

Harvest Moon: The Lost Valley Has A Villager That Talks Like The Mafia



Harvest Moon: The Lost Valley has a villager by the name of Sam. He’s got a wife and daughter, so he isn’t one of the game’s bachelors, but he will be selling you goods during his frequent visits to the valley.

Oh, and he talks like he’s from the Mafia. “Heh heh heh! Youse nevah woulda guessed I has a daughta, yeah?” is one of the many lines you can expect to see from him in the game. He’s described as a kind-hearted individual who also tends to be a bit of a trickster, although his family is his first priority.

Sam’s wife appears to be suffering from some sort of ailment and requires a special medicine that can only be made by a character in the game that hasn’t been revealed yet. Natsume shared a couple of screenshots of Sam as well, which you can see below.
