Harvest Moon: Tsunagaru Shin Tenchi will launch for 3DS in Japan on February 27 for 4,800 yen (5,040 yen with tax), Marvelous AQL has announced.

The upcoming farming game offers several new features, including:

  • Trade - From the Trade Station, you can ship your homegrown produce and dairy all over the world. When shipped products reach their destination, you’ll receive a thank you postcard. In addition to shipping products, you can also buy items from trade destinations.
  • Multiplayer - By connecting to the internet or via local correspondence, you can go and visit a friend’s farm or invite a friend to your farm. Up to four people can farm and take care of animals together while chatting and gifting souvenir items.
  • StreetPass - With StreetPass, other farmers you pass might turn up in your town. By talking to these farmers, you can find out their total amount of shipments and the kinds of animals they raise.
  • Super Mario Bros. Items - By meeting certain requirements, you can grow a Super Mushroom, Fire Flower, or Super Star from Super Mario Bros. in your field. Each special crop holds a special effect, if it grows well.

Pre-orders for Harvest Moon: Tsunagaru Shin Tenchi include an “Angora Rabbit Fuwamoko Extra-Large Strap.”
