Rising Star Games have announced that they will be publishing the next Harvest Moon game for 3DS in Spring 2017. There is also a new trailer for E3.
In the once prosperous and verdant land known as the Oasis of the Harvest Goddess, many people used to live in harmony in a lush and green place called Skytree Village. However, the power of the Harvest Goddess gradually began to fade and the land became arid and dry. Now it’s up to you to nurture the seven Skytrees back to health in order to give the Harvest Goddess her power back and, in turn, restore life to this desolate land!
Harvest Moon: Skytree Village weaves a charming farming story and incorporates new features and streamlined gameplay mechanics based on fan feedback. The community has helped shape this all-new adventure just like players will shape and mould the land in the game, with their feedback and input contributing to what will be the most rounded, enjoyable and accessible Harvest Moon yet seen.
Throughout their farming adventure, players will encounter a new cast of characters including a few familiar returning faces, alongside a brand new art style, and new character models. User-friendly tutorials enable players to immediately jump into the action, customising their farm by raising and lowering the land, creating rivers, ponds, and more. Upgraded tools now 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!
Harvest Moon: Skytree Village key features:
- Completely new story with tons of interesting new characters.
- New crops and flowers to discover.
- New fishing mechanics: expand waterways and catch rarer fish.
- A full town populated with many residents, each with their own personalities and quirks.
- Play as a boy or a girl, woo bachelorettes and bachelors, and start a family.
- Care for the newest herd animal: the super-hairy super-cute Poitou donkey!
“The Harvest Moon world is a joyful and enchanting virtual space to spend time in,” said Lee Skittrell, Marketing Strategist, Rising Star Games. “Because we enjoyed such success with our most recent release, 2015’s Harvest Moon: The Lost Valley, we are thrilled to once again be able to bring an all-new Harvest Moon to our passionate and loyal community of farming game fans.”
