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 (NA 2008, EU 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.

Latest Harvest Moon News

PSN Sale, RF4 Marv Comic, and June 2012 4-col Comic | Posted at 09:24 PM on 20 April 2018
Happy Farm'n Friday! The temperature here in the Portland area is beginning to warm up, meaning it's just about time to put the little tomato plants outside and hope they don't get nibbled on by deer this year. They did get a little sunburned a few weeks ago, but they are recovering well and should be ready to go outside soon. We also have mason bee houses to set up. We have to help the local pollinators!

It's another light week in the farming news world. Harvest Moon: Light of Hope comes out next month in North America though! Europe will have the game in late June. There's still no news about the Nintendo Switch version of Story of Seasons, sorry.
