Harvest Moon: Tree of Tranquility
already features some wild and exotic animals not usually found in the adorable farming series, like friendly ostriches. The newly-announced sequel seems to be going even further down that wacky path. For one thing, it's called Bokujou Monogatari: Waku Waku Animal March (Harvest Moon: Exciting Animal March
). For another, animals like a lion, a giraffe, a hippopotamus, and a zebra can be seen in the art found on the new game's website
Other than the new animals and a new, older-looking pair of player characters, Waku Waku Animal March
looks strikingly similar to Tree of Tranquility.
Check out the screens at Famitsu
and more at Dengeki
. It will be interesting to see if Natsume picks this up for localization or if the new Marvelous USA takes care of it themselves (through XSEED).
