Story of Seasons
A new beginning for harvest moon fans
I can't wait for this game to come out! I love Xseed for bringing this to America!
I also do not really mind the name change, as there has been plenty of games made under the 'Harvest Moon' title.
Farming once more!
Xseed did an awesome job with Rune Factory 4 and I think they will put out an excellent product once more.
The new country trade and helping other players will be a new and interesting features that could be proved to either be a great help, a hassle, or not really make a difference.
This could be just the revamp the series is in need of. Definitely a pre-order for me, the marriage candidates are also looking good from what I was able to find.
THIS IS GOING TO BE GREAT!
I cannot wait for this game! I have HM:Lost Valley pre-ordered as well, but my biggest hopes lie with Story of Seasons. The new Trading system sounds interesting and I am excited to see it. Also, being able to have two children is going to be awesome. The marriage candidates all seem awesome so far. I love that Cam (Kamil) and Reina (Licorice) are back. Seeing just a few friendly faces definitely helps with the integration into the new systems they are putting into place with this game. The villagers seem diverse, and I love that there are other farmers who are main characters. We had Ash in ToTT and a few others before, but they didn't make it a big deal like they are going to in this game--especially with Elise "a Wealthy fellow farmer" and Eda "an Experienced fellow farmer." It feels like this will be a great game for new and veteran players alike. I felt myself a little bored with A New Beginning once I got to the 5th Town Renovation Plan, but Everything I have read on SoS sounds like they are going in wonderful directions for "the New Harvest Moon." I am ecstatic to get my hands on it and play!
A Big Step Forward For XSeed and Harvest Moon
XSeed has always done an excellent job with all of their releases. They provide accurate translations and quality special editions for all of the games they release; I expect that their handling of the new incarnation of the Harvest Moon series will be of the same high quality!
From the makers of HM: A New Beginning
This is the team that made the other Harvest Moon 3DS game, A New Beginning. There is a bit of drama since the publisher, Natsume, decided to release their own game, Harvest Moon The Lost Valley. Natsume always publishes, and this is their first time developing an actual game. But 'Story of Seasons' is the real new game in the series, just with a different name. If you love Rune Factory and Harvest Moon then you are going to love this one!
i love this game
I personally love harvest moon, I really cant wait. this is awesome. its a pity that its not harvest moon anymore but the graphics and art are great. so im really excited. cam and reina are there too!
I've played all other Harvest Moon Rune factory games and this one looks to be just as great if not better. Cannot wait for that release date.
A bit worried
I will admit this is not by Natsime(Sorry if its wrong). What xxseed (sorry again if wrong) di a wonderful job with rune factory 4 so I am not that afraid. I recommend you get Echo valley to this year and decide which you like better. I m relay excited though!
