New images have recently been made available for Harvest Moon: Linking the New World, the upcoming title in the long-running life simulation series. Included in the new images is the box art, which you can see on the right. These images come a month and a half before its release in Japan.
Harvest Moon: Linking the New World is the 20th game in the main series and the 12th on a portable console. You play as a young boy or girl who has grown bored of of your monotonous life. Wanting to shake things up, you jump at the opportunity to live the life of a farmer in Oak Tree Town. As the title states, connectivity will play a big part in the game as you’ll be able to sell your crop and dairy products to other “countries” via a Trade Station. This will make your farm not just a hopeful seed of the town but that of the surrounding areas.
Harvest Moon: Linking the New World releases in Japan on February 27th, 2014. No western release has been announced yet. However, given the localization history of the series, we should expect an announcement soon, possibly from Rising Star Games or Marvelous AQL Europe for the PAL region as well as XSEED/Marvelous USA or Natsume for North America.
Check out the recently released trailer for the game.
