N.America Release: September 30, 2008

The great tree of the island has withered away, and with it the Goddess has vanished. It is up to you to revitalize the island, the Goddess, and return the massive tree back to it's original status.
This is the first Harvest Moon game to use the Wii's tilt-sensitive controller. You can till your farm soil with a downward movement of the controller, and even water your plants by wiggling the Wiimote back and forth. You also have the ability to select what gender you want to play your character as.
Tree of Tranquility was not made with the help of Igusa Matsuyama, the regular character designer for the Harvest Moon Series. Matsuyama-san latest projects were Island of Happiness, River King: Mystic Valley, and Shining Sun & Friends for DS.
The game has sold approximately 65,000 copies in Japan in 2007, according to MediaCreate sales data.
