Natsume Inc. has recently announced that the latest installment in the Harvest Moon franchise, Harvest Moon: Skytree Village has been released this week. The new entry as the CEO of Natsume has described as making major advancements in character art and more gameplay improvements with an emphasis on a stronger story and many marriageable candidates. The game is both available physical at retailers like Gamestop and Amazon and digitally on the Nintendo eShop for $29.99.
Times have changed in the land known as the Oasis of the Harvest Goddess. Many people used to live in Skytree Village, and the land was lush and green. However, the power of the Harvest Goddess gradually began to wane, and the land became parched and dry.
With a completely new story, players will be challenged to restore the seven legendary Skytrees that make the town so iconic and bring power and prosperity to the land around them. Along the way, they’ll meet a new cast of characters (with a few returning familiar faces), alongside a brand-new art style, new character models, and more.
With user-friendly tutorials, players will immediately be able to jump into the thick of things, customizing their farm by raising and lowering the land, creating rivers, ponds, and more. Upgraded tools will assist farmers in shaping the land more efficiently, and afterwards they can kick back and relax in their boat to do a spot of fishing! It won’t be long before they’ll need to weigh anchor to care for their newest herd animal: the Poitou donkey!
Play as a boy or a girl, woo bachelors and bachelorettes, and start a family!
Completely new story with tons of interesting new characters!
Terraform your land any way you like!
New crops and flowers to discover!
