First Look: Harvest Moon DS
Natsume's farming series gets a dual-screen treatment
Natsume's unique farming franchise is coming to the DS, and will have players returning to Forget-Me-Not-Valley to put their nurturing skills to the test.
It turns out the Witch Princess is quite the jealous type, and isn't too pleased that her rival, the Harvest Goddess, is much more popular than her. So the Witch Princess did what most witches would do in her case: she stoned that Goddess up good and banished her to another world.
Now in order to restore magic to the Valley, it's up to you to seek out all 101 Harvest Sprites, all whilst you plant fields, tend livestock, and eventually settle down with the trophy wife of your dreams (this time you can marry a human, mermaid, witch, or goddess. Damn).
Look for Harvest Moon DS to arrive in stores sometime this August. We'll have a full report of the game sometime soon, so keep it locked on the Mo.
