Today Natsume revealed that the next title in the farming RPG series Harvest Moon is called Harvest Moon: The Lost Valley. The game will be launching on the Nintendo 3DS next year and it will be showcased during E3 next week. This game will be the first that employs a three-dimensional setting for the first time, including a fully customizable world.
Natsume President Hiro Maekawa says this game will take Harvest Moon back to its roots while continuing to innovate.
Harvest Moon: The Lost Valley is truly evolving the franchise. Hardcore fans will love it, players who haven’t played a Harvest Moon game in a while will want to try it out, and new players will be introduced to the unique and charming world that is Harvest Moon. But the incredibly exciting thing that really elevates the game is that while it does get back to what everyone loves about the early games, it also innovates in a way that no Harvest Moon game ever has.
We’ll be taking a look at the game at E3 next week, so stay tuned.
