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 Harvest Moon: Skytree Village in Europe (June 2017).

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.

3oT Release, Wild Animal Gifts, and HM 20th | Posted at 05:09 PM on 10 March 2017
Happy Farm'n Friday! Sorry about last week's missing Farm'n Friday. I didn't expect to get sick last week, and my eyeballs wouldn't allow me to sit in front of my computer for any length of time before they'd become strained and uncomfortable; yea, it impacted 3DS farming time too :(

Farming time? Of course, since Story of Seasons: Trio of Towns was released last week! Now everyone in North America (or those outside of North America who own North American consoles) can try to convince dear 'ol dad that they are capable of managing your own farm. Growing crops, raising animals, fishing, festivals, and all sorts of activities are available for players to go through to experience the unique cultures of the nearby towns.

Many players have been sending me JP->EN changes, so thanks for that! It will help everyone who is going through the game.

As the Fogu guide continues to be filled in (luckily my eyes will allow for site work this weekend), here's some favorite gifts for the wild animals you can befriend:


It looks like the StreetPass is restricted between regions though. My Japanese version of the game won't tag my English version of the game, which was also the case with the first Story of Seasons game too.

Also in North America, Natsume continues to promote the 20th anniversary of Harvest Moon with a new dedicated page on their website that lists the timeline of Harvest Moon releases, starting from 1997 (my first was HM GB in 1998 ) all the way through 2016 when Skytree Village was released. So far we've been able to play many of the classic Harvest Moon games on the Nintendo Virtual Console such as the GBA games, the three Gameboy games, the SNES game, and recently Harvest Moon 64. Over on the Sony side, we can play the PS1 and PS2 games. Perhaps someday the A Wonderful Life series (that isn't the slow-moving PS2 version) will become available for those who haven't played yet.

If you happened to missed out on the 3DS Skytree game bundles, the Bluebird and Bobcat plushie+game bundles are back in stock at Amazon:


Until next time!
