The Ushi No Tane websites specialize in information, FAQs, and guides about the Nintendo console versions of the Harvest Moon, Story of Seasons, and Legend of the River King video games. These game genres are created and published in Japan by Marvelous. In other regions, you'll find Natsume, XSeed Games, Marvelous AQL of Europe, and Rising Star involved in the series' release.

The latest version of the farming series in various regions of the world are Bokujou Monogatari: Mitsu no Sato no Taisetsuna Tomodachi (June 2016) in Japan, Harvest Moon: Skytree Village in North America, Harvest Moon: Seeds of Memories in the App Store in various regions (except Japan), and Story of Seasons (December 2015, Europe).

The latest version of River King, in all regions of the world, is River King: Mystic Valley (2009).

Since 2000, Ushi no Tane has been run by a grouchy old lady who happens to be fond of video game agriculture. The website is not officially affiliated, sponsored, endorsed, or employed by the developers of Harvest Moon, Story of Seasons, or River King. This is simply a fan site.

Latest Harvest Moon News

Skytree DLC and Nintendo Swith | Posted at 12:31 PM on 13 January 2017
Happy farm'n Friday! This week a patch for Harvest Moon: Skytree Village was released on the Nintendo 3DS eShop in North America. This free download requires 36 blocks of SD space and updates the game to version 1.01. The patch included some bug fixes, preparations for future download content, and unlocked high level fertilizer purchases from Sam's shop.

Within a few weeks we'll have two additional marriage candidates in Skytree Village. The bachelor DLC comes with a Harvest Goddess statue for your farm land, while the bachelorette DLC comes with a STATUE OF SMEXY DOC to decorate our farm spaces with. The new candidates will be $2.99 USD each.

Community manager CeeCee will be introducing the new marriage candidates as it gets closer to their DLC release date. Keep an eye on the company's Facebook page for character interviews from reporter Naomi:

Next month the Harvest Goddess Pergola from Harvest Moon: Lost Valley will be a free DLC along with a Harvest Sprite Statue.

Also in North America, both Skytree Village and Story of Seasons are included in Nintendo's January Digital Deals. The farming games will be discounted until January 25. Skytree Village is 28% off ($21.59 USD) and Story of Seasons is 37% off ($18.99 USD). The sale also includes Natsume's River City Tokyo Rumble.

Last night's Nintendo Switch conference revealed the realistic game Farming Simulator was in development for the new home console (and confirmed by Giants Software) and a Bokujou Monogatari game was planned (and confirmed by Hashimoto). We already know that Stardew Valley is planned for the upcoming console. There's three farm'n games already associated with the Nintendo Switch!

Unfortunately there doesn't appear to be any publicized interest from Marvelous for a new River King game. Back when the 3DS was revealed, a Kawa no Nushi Tsuri game and Bokujou Monogatari game were listed on Marv's website as planned for the new console. Eventually we received Hajimari no Shin Tenchi or Harvest Moon: A New Beginning for the 3DS, but the Kawa game fell off of Marvelous' website. It has almost been 10 years since the last River King game was released in Japan (June 2007). It would be super awesome if a new game was developed for the Switch, but that may just be a fish dream...

Until next time!
