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 (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.

Latest Harvest Moon News

Miiverse RIP, 3oT DLC, and LoH Loving | Posted at 04:28 PM on 03 November 2017
Happy Farm'n Friday! During my work-week evenings I'm still plugging away at Stardew Valley on my Switch. Reached the bottom (I think?) of the mine, finished a few of the Community Center rooms, and now have animals on my river farm. Still can't find Lewis' "shorts," but I'm sure to bump into that at some point.

Reminder: Miiverse Ending November 7

There are just a few days left for Nintendo's community service Miiverse, which will be discontinued as of 10:00 PM (Pacific Time) on November 7th (Tuesday). Once Miiverse closes the ability to save in-game screen shots of your Nintendo 3DS games to the internet will be gone except for games that support local screen shots such as the Camera feature in Harvest Moon: Skytree Village.

There are still active communities available for Story of Seasons: Trio of Towns, Harvest Moon 64, Harvest Moon: Skytree Village, Story of Seasons, and more from our favorite farming series.

You can make a request to download your Miiverse post and image history from within your Miiverse account, but the request must be submitted before the 10pm cut-off date next Tuesday. Once Miiverse closes, you'll be emailed a link to download a .zip of your posts, drawings, and screen shots. Nintendo's info states that the request process may take a few weeks after Miiverse closes before the link will be sent to the email address associated with your Nintendo account (not the email address associated with any Miiverse account you might have).

Trio of Towns DLC for North America

The New Neighbor Pack, the highly anticipated additional download content for Trio of Towns, has finished localizing and will be available in North America on November 9th for a price of $7.99 USD. On that day a game patch will also be available, for free, that fixed various hiccups in the game, such as the sun-swapping issue in the underground cellar, as well as adding four free clothing outfits. This free patch must be downloaded and installed before farmers can purchase the New Neighbor Pack, which will unlock Stephanie and Woofio as marriage candidates. The DLC will also add in more social events such as the group gossip event that triggers every 60 days or so when you walk out of your farm and into the Crossroads, or the three cultural appreciation events in Lulukoko, Tsuyukusa, and Westown.

Light of Hope Q&A

In the latest post about the newest Harvest Moon game scheduled to be released for PC on November 14, Producer Taka confirmed that there will be five marriage candidates per gender - Cyril, Dean, Edmond, Gabriel, and Gareth for the girl farmers, and Elise, Jeanne, Melanie, Nova, and Tabitha for the boy farmers. It looks like Doc was passed over again in this rendition of the series, even though he is the bestest candidate ever!

The latest update video on Natsume's Facebook page features romance and dating, where you can see the protagonists wooing their assigned candidates, attending romance festivals, and celebrating a wedding anniversary. You can even see the farmer digging on the beach to find sea shells, and the cat returns as a house pet. Taka also confirmed that gift giving is in the game, and Tabitha can give you hints as to what villagers like as gifts, which she has done in Seeds of Memories. There is also a new romantic festival called the Harvest Moon Festival.

You can watch the latest gameplay video on Natsume's FB page:

I wonder if the pet dog will actually herd animals in this latest version? That would be very helpful!

Until next time!
