Harvest Moon Creator Looking at 3DS, Wii U Development

Posted by James Newton

Wada piece of good news

Yasuhiro Wada created the very first Harvest Moon before going on to work on Little King's Story and No More Heroes, among other games. So when Wada says he's developing a 3DS game, it's most definitely Good News.

Wada confirmed to Official Nintendo Magazine that he's currently working on a 3DS game, though wouldn't say anything more:

I've got a 3DS game in the pipeline right now, and I've got another game that we haven't decided the platform on, but which I am hoping to bring to Wii U.

Wada has previously spoken about his desire to release a new IP in the near future, so we're expecting something unexpected. As he's also chief operating officer of Grasshopper, we can't wait to see what Wada's team cooks up.

More Wada on the 3DS and Wii U will most likely be a good thing. So that's nice to hear. :)

I got all excited when I thought this was a Harvest Moon announcement, and then I realized he doesn't work at Marvellous any more :(

I love Rune Factory and all, but I want Harvest Moon!

No... no he does not look canadian. But why wouldn't you want him to be?
Little King's Story was pretty excellent, though I never put it down after 12 hours or so, before I got to many of the other kingdoms. Should fire that up again, methinks.

Well, I'm not really a big fan of 'Harvest Moon' I have never played it. But if it turns out good, I'll take a look at it. I guess I will have to get myself to read more about this.

Are any of developers actually gonna confirm WiiU support?
They all seem to like the WiiU, yet are sitting on their hands it seems.
Note to developers: commit to WiiU or shut the hell up!
