Harvest Moon: Seeds of Memories announced for Wii U, PC, and smartphones

Latest Harvest Moon to debut at E3 this month.

Harvest Moon: Seeds of Memories

The next entry in Natsume’s Harvest Moon series is Harvest Moon: Seeds of Memories, due out for Wii U, PC, iOS, and Android this winter, the publisher announced.

The new title is inspired by the old school gameplay of the very first games, with added “modern twists.” Players are tasked with the job of revitalizing a farm and befriending villagers in town to unlock “Seeds of Memories.” These can be unlocked in many ways, such as giving a villager their favorite item, catching a giant fish, or by raising your first crow.

In the animal department, cows, sheep, and chickens return, along with a horse to ride and a dog to keep as a pet. Farmers will also be able to take care of a bobcat, which starts out wild, but as players can befriend.

The game also features cooking, fishing, foraging, and mining, as well as tool upgrades. Players will be able to partake in contests and festivals like the Cooking Contest and Starry Night Festival. There will also be 10 marriage candidates: five male and five female.

Natsume will showcase more of the new Harvest Moon at this month’s E3, which runs from June 16 to to 18.
