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 (Summer 2016, Japan), Harvest Moon: Seeds of Memories in the iOS 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.

Win Tickets to E3 2016 from Natsume | Posted at 02:39 PM on 20 May 2016
E3 is next month, June 14 to 16, where the video game peeps gather to eat a lot of tasty food. No, really, it is about the food. Yea, there's some video game stuff in there somewhere, but FOOD! Curry Chicken Grilled Cheese Sandwich? Yes please! If you were ever interested in attending this gaming/eating gathering, Natsume is holding a contest where you can win a pair of tickets to walk the game show floor. Granted, you're just winning the tickets to the show; hotel, airfare, food budget, etc., are not included as part of the deal. But, for your chance to play some not-released video games and then pig out on some awesome tacos (Guisados) or ramen (Daikokuya is good, but try tasty Manichi next door if you don't want to wait hours for a seat at Daikokuya), head over to Natsume's Facebook page for instructions on how to enter. You might even bump into little 'ol me at E3, stuffing my face somewhere around the food trucks.

Earlier this week, Marvelous updated the official website for Story of Seasons: Precious Friends of the 3 Hometowns and added a new preview video:

Some small take-away things from the video:

Pages of the website were updated to include profiles for Ginjirou, Dessie, and Witchie; Misura, Rottas, and Tototara; Doctor Ford; and special candidate Inari. The website also introduced a new Spring season romance festival.

The Kingdom of PotatoLand seems to be expanding very quickly. It is happily situated between its neighbors, the Republic of Blueberry and the Marionberry Territory. All crop countries appear to be getting along, but the Republic might be encroaching on PotatoLand's space just a little bit. Hopefully their ambassadors can reach an agreement that will be amicable to both of them.

Until next time!
