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.

Latest Harvest Moon News

20th Contest, LoH Q&A, 3oT EU, and Oct 4-col | Posted at 11:50 AM on 13 October 2017
Happy Farm'n Friday! Most of the dahlias here at Fogu HQ are now packed away for their six months of winter sleepy time. There's still about 10 left to prepare as well as all the bulbs in the allium bed that need to be pulled up before the ground freezes. Soon there won't be yard work to do for months, but there will be Christmas Extravaganza installation soon! Ho ho ho!

Harvest Moon 20th Drawing Contest

To celebrate the 20th anniversary of the first Harvest Moon game, Natsume is holding a global drawing contest for all fans of the series. To participate in the contest, the art piece must contain at least one game character and at least one animal from a "Harvest Moon" game; "Story of Seasons" characters wouldn't count, of course. The art piece can be more than just a drawing too, as the company is accepting submissions for all kinds of farming goodies such as pictures of cross-stitched pieces.

More information and the official rules can be found on the company's website. The contest is open until December 31, so you've lots of time to use your artistic skills to show Natsume how much you like farming video games!

Light of Hope Q&A #2 and #3

The second and third set of fan-submitted questions for Harvest Moon: Light of Hope have been posted on Natsume's Facebook page. They revealed that the game will have a festival that fans have asked for (but didn't reveal what festival that was), the "silky" donkey is a new animal you can care for, and there will be physical versions of the Ps4 and Switch. The villagers will walk around and have daily schedules, and this "retro plus" style game is currently on track for an end-of-Winter completion with PC version development going faster than the console version.

Trio of Town Finally Sprouts in Europe

Wooo! It took a while, but the PAL version of Story of Seasons: Trio of Towns is finally out. The game is available in English, German, French, Spanish, and Italian. Congrats fellow farmers!
