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 in Japan (June 2016), Story of Seasons: Trio of Towns in North America (February 2017), Harvest Moon: Skytree Village in North America (November 2016), and Story of Seasons in Europe (December 2015).
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.

The second XSeed Games localization blog for Story of Seasons: Trio of Towns
was released on Tuesday. In the Tumblr entry, the localizers explain how they worked with the Bokujou Monogatari
team in Japan to make programming changes that better match non-Japanese farmer expectations. The article confirms that Farm Circles are still called "Farm Circles" in the English version, and the Town Rank system is now the Town Link Rank. You can read about the changes to veggies and fruit classifications on the XSeed Tumblr blog:
On Sunday the first download content for Harvest Moon: Skytree Village
was made available under the Download Content menu within the game. The Farm Decoration Set is a free update that requires 5 blocks of SD space which will unlock 20 decoration options you can place in your farm area. There are 4 brick path patterns, 8 wall options, and 8 corresponding corner wall options. These can be constructed at Doc's laboratory and then placed around your farming space to spruce it up.
Tomorrow is the last day to enter Natsume's Christmas Skytree Village plushie contest. To participate in the fun, simply take a picture of your bluebird or bobcat plushie in a festive holiday scene, then send the picture to Community Manager CeeCee by midnight (Pacific time) on Saturday the 31st. Contestants must be a legal resident of the US or Canada (sorry Central and South America...) and can possibly win another Skytree Village plushie of their choice. You can read more about the contest criteria on Natsume's Facebook page:
