The latest version of River King, in all regions of the world, is River King: Mystic Valley (NA 2008, EU 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.

LoH DLC #3, LDC Chars, and Farm Folks Funding | Posted at 06:09 PM on 13 July 2018
Happy Farm'n Friday! I assumed we were done with bird nesting for the season, but last weekend I spotted another Junco bringing bits of twigs into the far-left hanging flower basket on the front porch. Looks like we're in for another few weeks of being chirped at every time we leave the house through the front door!

This time there's only two eggs, and their flower basket of choice is the one in the shadier section of the front yard. The basket doesn't need as much water as the other two hanging baskets. It's a good spot to raise some little Juncos!

Light of Hope DLC #3

The third downloadable optional bonus content for Harvest Moon: Light of Hope Special Edition was released this week. This DLC is available to those who are playing the Playstation 4 and Nintendo Switch editions of the game; no DLC is available for the Steam platform version. This bundle includes interior farmhouse renovations at Doc's shop and new character outfits from Melanie, basically turning her into a shop when she's located inside Gus' blacksmith shop.

The options at Doc's house are plentiful. There's a retro-plus style (with SNES-style graphics), flowery, sci-fi, fluffy, magical, eastern, and steampunk. You can always switch back to the original log cabin style too. Each of Doc's options are really inexpensive and only require 1000 G, 2 Softwood Lumber, and 4 Stone (or 2 Material Stone). You can only have one house interior active (you can't mix-and-match interior styles) and the remodeling is instantly complete after you confirm the order.

Melanie's outfits are a bit more challenging. The DLC does unlock one outfit for your farmer character, which you can switch to by using the Dresser inside of the farm house. The rest are a combination of 20,000 G and donkey fur, wool, cotton candy wool, silkie fur, and flowers. The flowers required for the men's seasonal outfits are color mutations: white dahlia is a mutation of pink dahlia during summer, pink carnation is a mutation of red carnation during fall (and only when grown on mixed/mountain terrain), and purple pansy is a mutation of pink pansy during winter. So, naturally, I don't have the necessary materials yet in my Switch game to unlock any of the seasonal outfits.

New LDC Characters

This week Marvelous revealed the last characters from their official website for Wada's Little Dragons Cafe.

Also new is information about the ingredient drops of the monsters you battle on the island. The different colors of the same species will help you determine the rank of the ingredient drops. The ranks include yellow, green, red, silver, and finally gold-colored monsters. There are also giant forms of the Zukiton and Yakidori monsters that drop a lot of ingredients.

The official North American website by Aksys Games now includes the English names of the in-game characters. Wada spent last weekend with Aksys Games at AnimeExpo in downtown Los Angeles, California, talking about his new game, signing autographs, and participating in a panel to promote LDC.

The game will be released in Japan and North America next month! Sorry Europe *shrug* Though you guys do have a cute trailer!

Farm Folks Funded!

The Kickstarter game posted about last week has been completely funded by farming fans and is moving towards its first stretch goal: the inclusion of ridable bikes, scooters, and llamas into the game. The game is over 125% funded at the moment with 13 days left until the crowdfunding campaign ends.

This week the developers introduced a new ridable animal: the Sorbet Elolas. These large birds swam over to Softshoal Island from another area of the Yurtaan Archipelago to make a new home for themselves.

If you still want a chance to contribute to the game's funding, and score yourself a digital PC version of the game for about $20 USD, head over to their Kickstarter page:

Until next time!
