Harvest Moon: A New BeginningIf you’re thinking of getting a game for your 3DS, you may want to check out Harvest Moon: A New Beginning from Natsume. If you liked the previous versions, you’ll really like this one. Even if you’ve never tried out the Harvest Moon series before, this game will soon get you addicted. 

It does start out a little slow, but there is a lot to learn about Echo Village, the town where you live. You’ll need to pay attention to all the details, some of which will come in useful later on in the game.  

When you start playing Harvest Moon: A New Beginning, Echo Village has a very small population and the town needs a complete renovation. It is up to you to revive the town by planting crops, raising animals and adding features like trees, street lights, bushes, etc.

  • You will get to date and marry one of the other single characters in the game

An interview between Silconera and Graham Markay, VP of Operations of Natsume, brings good news to 3DS fans. Here are some of Markay’s quotes from the interview:

“From a company standpoint, the 3DS looks innovative, it’s moving forward. Anything that’s shown and then it causes you to start thinking in your head how you can utilize it, or what you can make for it, I definitely think is something that excites us. So, uhh…we are actually looking into the 3DS, and who knows, maybe some announcements in the future…”

When Silconera pointed out that Harvest Moon had already been announced for 3DS by Marvelous Entertainment, he replied:

“Okay, that one’s an announcement!” Graham conceded. “So that one should probably come in the future. Moving forward, I can pretty much say that Natsume will be a definite supporter of the 3DS.”
