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), 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

Stardew Valley Console Releases! | Posted at 07:19 PM on 02 December 2016
Happy farm'n Friday! Not much happened this week regarding our beloved video game genre. The Bluebird bundle and Bobcat bundle for Harvest Moon: Skytree Village are not sold out and still available on the US Amazon.com website.

Stardew Valley will be released on the Xbox One on December 14. The farming game will also be released on the Playstation 4 in North America on December 13 and in Europe on December 14. The popular farming game will not be released on the Wii U, but mega developer Concerned Ape plans to work on a version for the upcoming Nintendo Switch console.

Since not much is going on, let's cover a little trick in Skytree Village that new players of the Natsume flavor of the genre may not be aware of.

When feeding your livestock and poultry animals, placing food into the feed troughs will entice the animals to venture over for a meal. Unfortunately, sometimes they like to take their sweet time walking over to their food. You can harvest milk, wool, and donkey fur after the animals have eaten their feed, which will happen at the top of the hour (10:00, 11:00, and so on). If the animals take too long to reach their feed, then you might have to wait for another hour before you can collect.

To get past this, you can force your animals to their feed troughs before the hour comes up. Simply press the X Button to open your main menu, then select the Save/Load button. Instead of picking the option to Save or Load, just press the red-colored back arrow button in the lower-left corner or press the B Button. When you return to the game you'll find your animals all lined up in front of their food! Taadaa!

This trick also works to get wild animals out of your way. For example, if the brown bunny is hanging out in front of a mine entrance and just doesn't want to move, use this trick to have it reload to somewhere else in the area.

Until next time!
