I'm looking forward to TLV, but can't really say the same for SoS.
Portable Harvest Moon (Story of Seasons) games really started going downhill after Island of Happiness. I detested ToTT, and ANB. GB was decent, but it was pretty bad too.

I doubt I'll be buying any entries in the SoS series, unless/until they make a console entry.

Shoot I was hoping the first marriage candidate reveal would be one of the ladies lol. Anyway still good to get info on another character and I'm definitely getting used to the art style so that's a plus too.

Yay I found the thread.

Anyway, I figured I may as well share the latest info from Natsume:

Developer Diary #3: The Expanded Crops System
Our monthly developer diary series will give you a little bit of insight into the development behind Harvest Moon: The Lost Valley. Fans have regularly asked us to “peel back the mysterious curtain” on game development, and we’re happy to share some of what goes into a game.
SEPTEMBER’S DEVELOPER DIARY: THE EXPANDED CROPS SYSTEM
Today, we’ll focus on the crops of the Lost Valley. Let’s start with the simple, unassuming cabbage: You plant it, water it, and when it comes time to harvest it, you’ll have a traditional, normal, green cabbage, right? Nope! Not in this game! There are 10 different ways your cabbage can grow, such as a great cabbage, a red cabbage, or other mutations, depending on the various ways you grow it!
In Harvest Moon: The Lost Valley, each crop has numerous variants that players will need to discover! This goes beyond both the regular and “giant” versions of crops found in games like Harvest Moon: A New Beginning, but also mutations, such as purple flowers growing from pink seeds, pearl onions growing from a normal onion seeds, and even some mysterious pumpkin mutations that may grow when planted in swampy ground…which brings us to over 100 crops!
Players will need to experiment to discover all the different crop variations, and to do so, they’ll need to think outside the traditional field. With the capacity to plant anywhere within the Lost Valley, crops can be sowed at higher or lower elevations, closer to or further away from water, on dry land or swampy ground. Not every plant in these locations may result in a mutated plant, so farmers will need to keep trying for rare veggies and flowers!
Are you ready to take on the challenge of becoming a crop-growing master? Harvest Moon: The Lost Valley comes to the 3DS and 2DS soon!

CeeCee answered some new questions in the Natsume forums and released some very nifty news about the game.

She had previously said that tool upgrades wouldn't be in the game because they wanted people to use the helper sprites instead, but now she said that it will be possible to upgrade your tools in the final game (she also said that the process to upgrade them would not use ores though, so it's a mystery how will they be upgraded).

Another nifty thing is that all the seeds can be planted in any season. The big catch is that they grow better in their designated seasons. A winter crop in summer for example, will need much more care and attention than a summer crop.

@Morohbug I follow Ceecee on my Tumblr dashboard, she always has tons of info. I'm very curious to see what they've made of this game. Amazon has a release date of October 28. Have we see confirmation of that anywhere?

They say that the release date is still not final, but I hope the game is released in october.

Meowph, that's right!

I hope so too, though it will be a busy time with Fantasy Life too. But, the more the merrier!

Looks like they took a cue from Rune Factory.

Well this works for me. That means I have one less game to buy this month.

So there was a question asked about the whether the NPCs live in the Lost Valley with the player:

Some people have been a little confused on Fogu, because there was a previous answer where we were told that everyone lives in the Lost Valley. So, if everyone lives in Hillsville, but Hillsville is inaccessible, does that mean we will never be able to see other people's houses? Or stores? No rival farms?

And then CeeCee's reply:

Correct; part of that was a change during development and part of that was me not understanding well that change occurred during development, so I apologize. You won't see houses of most of the inhabitants (nor their work places, so you'll not meet Iris husband/April's dad for example, since he's over in Hillsville tending the shop). No rival farmers — much like rival couples we like the idea but need to look at how to implement it without it feeling rushed.

Though she went on to say that characters visit often at set times as well as additional random times on top of those and the valley you inhabit never feels empty once people start visiting. However they all apparently live in Hillsville, which is an area/town inaccessible to the player.

I'm not sure what to think but we shall see soon enough.

Yeah I saw that.

Not sure how I feel about it either. I'm sure it won't be much of an issue, but not having a formal village will be... Different.
