North America harvests Rune Factory 2 this fall

In the best DS news we'll hear all day (depending on which DS Fanboy staff member you ask), Natsume announced that they're bringing Rune Factory 2 to North America this fall. While we predicted localization would happen eventually, it was always a matter of when, so we're glad to see it being taken...

Rune Factory screens continue to impress

More beautiful Rune Factory Frontier screens have surfaced, and we're still pining over this lovely-looking game. Between the farming, monster slaying and collecting, flying whales, and glowing creatures, we're pretty much in awe of this RPG-meets-farming-sim hybrid. Granted, not everyone who...

Why buy the Harvest Moon when you get the cow for free?

There's been a disturbing lack of press about Harvest Moon: Tree of Tranquility. In fact, we've probably seen and heard more about Rune Factory: Frontier than we have about Tree, which came out in Japan last year.

Harvest Moon: Chicken of Happiness

Okay, the bad news first: it looks like that rumored delay for Harvest Moon: Island of Happiness was not only true, but understated: while GameStop still says July 29, Amazon now says August 26, and other recent updates to their listing seem to indicate that they know what's going on. Those...

Rumor: Harvest Moon: Delay of Frustration

Once mooted for a June 8th release, Harvest Moon: Island of Happiness now looks like being held up for almost two months, after Gamestop listed a revised release date of July 29th. Oh, sure, that's not the same as official confirmation from Natsume by any means, but we won't lie to you: we're all...

Ubisoft harvests a new farming game

Ubisoft is entering the farm sim genre, bringing a game called Farm Life to the Nintendo DS. While it may not be as good as the games in the Harvest Moon series (that remains to be seen), we doubt it could be as bad as John Deere: Harvest in the Heartland. At any rate, we don't mind there being some...

Developer: Marvelous Publisher: Marvelous/Natsume Release: June 8 When it comes to light-hearted, adorable games that make us want to smile, the Harvest Moon games top the list. The formula is relatively simple: grow and harvest crops, woo boy/girl, forge friendships, lather, rinse, repeat....

DS Fanboy Review: John Deere: Harvest in the Heartland

What do tractors, video games, and shoveling up cow poop have in common? If you guessed John Deere: Harvest in the Heartland, you probably read the title of this review.
