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.

HM 64 in Japan, 3oT Patch info, SV EU DLC, and Chicken Shirts | Posted at 06:28 PM on 07 July 2017
Happy farm'n Friday!

This week in Japan, Bokujou Monogatari 2 (or as we know it in English, Harvest Moon 64) was released on Nintendo WiiU's Virtual Console platform, along with Japan players' "SWITCH?" port-begging responses (lol, just like us!). The game requires 32 blocks of space and retails for 1028 yen (about $9 USD at the current exchange rate). It's the first Bokumono game released for Nintendo's VC in Japan. While NA and EU have the three Gameboy Color games on the 3DS and the SNES game on Wii/WiiU, Japan farming fans hasn't had any Bokumono VC support until now.

Japan players do have the Gameboy Advance River King games on the Wii U VC though: the GBA remakes of the original Gameboy games River King and River King 2 combined into one game cartridge, and the not-released-in-English Fushigi no Mori Kara.

Late last Friday, XSeed posted their first localization blog about their upcoming download content for Story of Seasons: Trio of Towns. The blog entry explains more details about the massive amount of work involved with localizing four separate DLCs from Japan into a single English DLC package. The blog confirms the localization of the gossip events at your farmhouse, the post-marriage event with your parents, new clothing outfits, and the inclusion of the gifted child if you had married Inari.

XSeed is also working on a free downloadable patch to fix some of the hiccups such as the game freezing bug if you enter the Lulukoko Beverage Bash when married to Ludus and the seasonal sun mixups when trying to set them in the cellar sun boxes. This patch will also include the tutorial books added into the JP game which list the items that belong to categories. For example, there's a tutorial book in the bookcase that lists every type of fish that is considered a "small fish" for cooking recipe purposes, which flowers are considered "red flowers" for crafting red cloths in the Textile Mill, and so on.

You can read more about the tasks the localization team was challenged with on their Tumblr page:


In Europe, the additional DLC for Harvest Moon: Skytree Village is now available for players to download. If it is similar to the North American options, there is a free Farm Decoration Set with wall and pathway construction options, a free Harvest Sprite Statute set that includes the Goddess Pergola blueprints at Doc's insta-building shop, the paid New Female Character set with the golden Doc statue (the bestest ever), and the paid New Male Character with the pretty Goddess statue. All of these are available from the Download Content menu on the game's title screen and not directly from the Nintendo 3DS eShop.


Also in EU, Rising Star Games is now selling Harvest Moon themed T-shirts. Wha? The shirt comes in five color choices (brown, blue, green, red, and white) in male or female shirt sizes, although the female styles are currently sold out.



Until next time!
