Harvest Moon 64 Finally Sprouts on the Wii U
| Posted at 04:46 PM on 24 February 2017
This week the long desired classic game, Harvest Moon 64
(Push the Start
) was released on the Nintendo Wii U Virtual Console in North America and, for the first time, in the Europe region. The game cost $9.99 (USD) and requires 60 MB of space on your Wii U console. The game was originally released in 1999 for the Nintendo 64 console, a nostalgic console for many older video game players. It's a first time playing it for me, as I moved to the Playstation 1 after the SNES and experience Harvest Moon: Back to Nature
instead. I've already goofed up by not standing in the middle of my plowed field before sowing my 200 G bag of Cabbage seeds. Au dangit...
There is a Nintendo Miiverse for the game available for players to post journals and screen shots!
There's not much information from Nintendo regarding the Virtual Console system for their upcoming Nintendo Switch game console, set to be released next Friday. We know that VC games won't be available at launch (per their confirmation
yesterday), but perhaps in the future we'll be able to play Harvest Moon 64 on the mobile console.
There's less than 5 days to go before Story of Seasons: Trio of Towns
will be released in North America. Later today, XSeed will host a live stream of the game on their Twitch channel
starting at 2:30 PM Pacific Time.
And here's the Nintendo DREAM 4-col comic for February!
Until next time!
