The limited edition Harvest Moon artwork giveaway announced last week was, let's face it, rather confusing. Now we have the full picture on how you'll be able to get three sets of PAL-exclusive, limited edition Harvest Moon-themed artwork.

The first set of art cards will be included with every copy of Harvest Moon: Grand Bazaar. The second set will be available to customers who pre-order and purchase Grand Bazaar at GAME, with the third set given to customers who pre-order and purchase Rune Factory 3 with GAME too.

Both games are heading for release across Europe on 30th September. Will you be pre-ordering to get these art sets?

Rising Star Games partners with GAME to offer exclusive pre-order incentives for million-selling series

Rising Star Games broker deal to distribute exclusive sets of bespoke character artwork with pre-orders of Harvest Moon: Grand Bazaar and Rune Factory 3

Thursday 8th September: Independent UK publisher Rising Star Games today announced plans to work with GAME on its flagship million-selling series Harvest Moon. Rising Star Games and leading UK retailer GAME are offering exclusive pre-order incentives to customers buying Harvest Moon: Grand Bazaar and Rune Factory 3. Pre-orders of these titles will be the only way to get hold of some of the bespoke character artwork Rising Star Games has commissioned for these releases.

Rising Star Games commissioned official Harvest Moon artist Higusa Matsuyama to create 30 pieces of bespoke character artwork. The artwork, available as art cards, have been grouped into sets of five cards, three portraits and two premium pieces, to be distributed with orders from the series. The first set of cards is included with all copies of Harvest Moon: Grand Bazaar. GAME has secured exclusive use of the second and third sets of cards; set two will be available with pre-orders of Harvest Moon: Grand Bazaar and set three will be available with pre-orders of Rune Factory 3.

Martin Defries, managing director, Rising Star Games, said: “We’re delighted to be working with GAME on this incredibly exciting incentive. Fans of the Harvest Moon series will get their hands on brilliant artwork by official Harvest Moon artist Higusa Matsuyama. All purchases of Harvest Moon: Grand Bazaar will contain the first set of artwork but fans looking to complete the collection will need to go to GAME to get those exclusive second and third sets.”

I love Rune Factory 3. Wish I could get my hands on that art, it's one of my favorite DS titles.

Since no one answered when I asked this in the universal recommendations thread, I'll ask again: The Rune factory series interests me because of its rpg elements and I was wondering if it would be good for someone who isn't interested in the Harvest moon series? I prefer the art style of the Rune factory games to the Harvest moon games too.

As the prices are similar to ShopTo I'll get them from GAME, but there's no mention of this on their website.

While the price for Rune Factory 3 seems quite normal at GAME i'd still have to add shipping costs. Not sure if this is worth it for me. Seeing what exactly i'd get surely would help.
Not really interested in Grand Bazaar.

@mariofanatic128 There's still farming elements to it but they're not the sole focus like they are in HM, they're more like aids to help you progress further through the dungeons etc. Try to dig out the first one on DS, it should only be cheap now.
