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 mainstream farming series in various regions of the world are:

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 along with two feline interns. 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.

LoH release and Nov '17 4-col Comic | Posted at 09:14 PM on 17 November 2017
Happy Farm'n Friday! In Stardew Valley I finally was able to retrieve and return Lewis' underwear to him. Ha ha, was not expecting that! Awkwaaaard...

Light of Hope PC Release

Harvest Moon: Light of Hope was released on the Steam video game platform on Tuesday. The game requires 599 MB of hard drive space and costs $29.99, though it is discounted 10% for its release. The game supports Steam achievements (28 of them) and Steam trading cards. If you don't want to play the game using a keyboard, it also supports PC compatible wireless controllers.

So far it seems to be a cute game from what I've had the time to play so far since Tuesday. Intern Boo had some unexpected health issues that took most of my after-work free time this week, but he seems to be getting better. While he's resting, I'll be able to spend some time playing the latest Harvest Moon game. So far I've fixed a couple of houses and planted some cabbage, but I have yet to meet the magnificent silver fox, Doc.

I will get to you eventually, you wild and craaaaazy guy...

There's an interesting article about the release of Natsume's first PC release over on PCGamer.com. President Hiro, Producer Taka (make Doc a marriage candidate, dangit!), and the VPO Markay talk a bit about the split with Marvelous, their 16-year history with the Bokumono series, the feedback they received on their previous in-house developed games, and what they hope to accomplish with their recent release.

XSeed Live Stream of 3oT DLC

On the 21st (next Tuesday), XSeed will be live streaming Story of Seasons: Trio of Towns to show off the new fancy things that they have added via the New Neighbor DLC that was released last week. The show starts at 4:00 PM Pacific Time (-8 GMT) over on their Twitch channel:

November 4-col Comic

And here is the Nintendo DREAM 4-col comic for November.

This Nintendori comic is the last one from the Trio of Towns series. Next month, the 4-col comic will start on a story based on Tale of Two Towns to celebrate the release of the 3DS version in Japan on December 14.

Until next time!
