Happy Moooo Year! AMZ.JP PoOT Preorder Update, Farm'n Discounts, and Jan 2021 BokuMobile Events | Posted at 02:40 PM 2020 1 01 January 2021

Happy Farm'n Friday! I hope you had a lovely Christmas, though as different as it may have been. It was a quiet day for us; a masked-up visit to his mom in the morning, then back home to play a new board game she gifted to Mr.Fogu called One-Hundred Torii. The game's goal was to earn points based on how long a path we can make through a Japanese garden. It was a bit confusing at first, but the two of us figured it out eventually. Ate some dinner while laying out our garden path, finished the game, then watched the new Pixar movie. It was actually a nice day without all the hubbub that typically takes place on Christmas.

Mr.Fogu's mom gifted me the Divine Edition of Sakuna: Of Rice and Ruin and Layton's Mystery Journey, while my mom got me Captain Toad: Treasure Tracker and Dragon Quest Builders 2. They both picked some excellent gaming gifts! Though I must finish Rune Factory 4 SE first, which I've been able to play again now that my free time isn't dedicated to Christmas baking, gifting, and whatnot. Now my little princess is working her way through a floating castle fortress. Still, I happened to explore Leon Karnak and discovered I wasn't getting slaughtered by every knife-throwing baddie in the dungeon, so now the Goblin Bashing Fairy Crew are exploring that dungeon instead of going where we're supposed to be. That floating island isn't going anywhere anyway!


Year 2021 will officially be the year of the ox in February, but in the past, it was celebrated in BokuMono style at the start of the year. The last time the ox was the animal-of-the-year was in 2009, with Youkozo! Kaze no Bazaaru e (localized as Harvest Moon: Grand Bazaar) as the latest released at the time. To celebrate the year, MMV published a New Year desktop wallpaper drawn by Igusa Matsuyama.

Here's a larger version of the wallpaper.

PoOT JP Preorder Update

While the most expensive PoOT bundle in Japan is the Ebiten Famitsu DX edition (~$95), with its bento lunch box and cloth carrying bag, the second-most-expensive preorder bundle is the Amazon.jp limited edition. This package contains a copy of the game, the Agate DLC costume, and a little plushie cow with a polyester shopping bag. Amazon recently uploaded a preliminary picture of what the eco-bag looks like:

The bag is about 17 inches wide, 14.5 inches tall, and only 3.5 inches deep (43cm by 37cm by 9cm) and is printed with crops on one side and the Bokujou Monogatari logo on the reverse side. The bag tucks inside a zipper pouch on the cow plushie. This special Amazon.jp preorder bundle is only $93!

The third-most-expensive bundle ($85) is the WonderGoo edition that comes with a coffee mug with Bokumono animals printed around it.
