Natsume also detailed the game’s bachelorettes:
“I… I…I’m Jeanne! I’m…studying to be an herbal doctor!”
A shy girl training to become an herbal doctor. While she is extremely intelligent and excellent at her job, she can also be a bit goofy, which makes her an endearing, fun-loving gal!
“Enchanted to meet you! My name is Elise!”
The daughter of Bastian, the Chef and owner of the restaurant and Inn in town. Elise is an aspiring apprentice chef. A bright and cheerful girl with a certain je ne sais quoi about her, her dream is to become a great chef just like her father!
“So, whatever-your-name-is, am I, like, even in the right PLACE? Is THIS the Harvest Goddess’ land?”
The granddaughter of Gus, the blacksmith in town. Melanie is a successful interior and apparel designer, running her own shop; Melanie’s Designs. She’s a strong-willed city girl who came to Skytree Village because she heard of its legendary beauty.
Here’s an overview of the title, via Natsume:
Revive the Land, Save a Village!
Many people used to live in Skytree Village, and the land was lush and green. However, the power of the Harvest Goddess gradually began to wane, and the land became parched and dry. It’s up to you revive the seven Skytrees to bring life back to this desolate land!

Upgraded tools will assist you shaping the land more efficiently, and afterwards you can kick back and relax in your boat to do a spot of fishing!
