Natsume is celebrating the ten-year anniversary of the Harvest Moon
franchise* in the best possible way: with new Harvest Moon
games. They released new screens today of the Wii farming game Harvest Moon: Tree of Tranquility
, which feature all the best parts of Harvest Moon
: planting stuff, caring for animals, riding around on an ostrich -- wait, what? In case all the tomato-growing
hadn't quite lured you into the world of Harvest Moon
yet, maybe the allure of awkward livestock vehicles may do the trick.
it's the ten-year anniversary, but Harvest Moon
came out in Japan in 1996 and the U.S. in 1997. It is
the ten-year anniversary of the PAL release of Harvest Moon
SNES, so it still counts!
