Develop a safari in Harvest Moon: Tsunagaru Shin Tenchi

Latest 3DS Harvest Moon launches next month in Japan.

Harvest Moon: Tsunagaru Shin Tenchi

In Harvest Moon: Tsunagaru Shin Tenchi, players will be able to develop their own animal “Safari.”

As the game’s story progresses, players will be able to go to the Safari, which is inhabited by wild animals. Here, animals you obtained through trade and other means can be set free and cared for. You can also develop the Safari, creating environments such as an iceberg or rocky mountain.

During the annual festival, players can invite residents of the town on a “Safari Tour.” You can also obtain certain items only available in the Safari, such as ores discovered through mining at specific locations.

By building an animal pen on your farm, you can keep cows, chickens, sheep, and the like. Doing so allows you to produce eggs, milk, fur, and other byproducts. Through taking care of and showing affection to your animals everyday, you can produce higher quality byproducts.

Pets are also part of the family in Harvest Moon. On your farm, you’ll be able to keep dogs and cats, and even horses as pets. Through playing catch, going for walks, and other means of communication, your relationship will grow. Dogs can help out with grazing land, and cats can pick up items.

Harvest Moon: Tsunagaru Shin Tenchi is due out for 3DS in Japan on February 27. View a new set of screenshots at the gallery.
