Pluck Harvest Moon: Tale of Two Towns 3DS on 1st November

Posted by James Newton

Free toy too

With the regular DS version of Harvest Moon: The Tale of Two Towns already available in North America, Natsume has revealed a release date for its 3D companion: 1st November.

As is traditional for a new HM game, customers who pre-order Harvest Moon: The Tale of Two Towns on 3DS will get a free cuddly toy, this time the same alpaca that came with the DS release. Pre-orders are open now on the official Natsume store.

Will you be getting Tale of Two Towns or waiting for the recently announced new Harvest Moon for 3DS due for release sometime next year?

I'm happy with sunshine islands for now.

I think this is the very first Harvest Moon game I am not interested in at all.
Specially since it seems the map is rather big, which means lots of virtual walking around.

The more Natsume delays this the more likely I'll buy something else instead.

Delayed again? Didn't they deside to delay it the first time because the 3DS was not selling to well and now Mario 3D Land will be out soon.

As fun as the Harvest Moon games are, this game has zero chance of selling like it would have.

Mario Land,Sonic,Cave Story,Mario Kart. They should of just released this when nothing else was out. And $40 does sound a little too pricey when Konami is dropping games to $30.

I really would like to get this but the delay of this game has pushed it down on my priority list. There are just too many games coming out this holiday season. If this would have come out at the same time as the DS version I would have gotten it. Looking forward to reading the review though.:)

I'm sure it won't be reviewed here for a while. A shame, considering there are barely any other websites that have reviewed the DS version. I was planning to get this if reviews were good, and no news is not good news in this case.

Looks like a good game. But I'll wait for the other HM game made specifically with the 3DS in mind. Last HM game i got was Magical Melody and DS. I hated the latter- Forget Me Not Valley is terrible there. Magical Melody reminded me so much of 64 for some reason- so streamlined and fun to play. It had more to do and exploration elements.

Remember when you help build that hot spring in 64 and how there's something new every year- or so it felt?

Anyhow, I'm ranting. I'll stop now.

I bought the DS version but waited for this. Now that the delays have pushed it so close to the Mario games, I doubt I'll start it for a while. But it's still a day-one purchase.

Harvest Moon 64 is amazing, and my favorite pure HM. I think "streamlined" is the perfect word for what made it better than the PSX version. It didn't feel awkward, but smooth.

@KomicZ: HM DS is one of the worst Harvest Moons. MANY of the newer ones are better. I think ToTT will be one of the better ones from what I've read up on it. Grand Bazaar is good, too, but it's a lot harder than some of the other HMs.

Anyway, this is a day one purchase for me, even with Mario around the bend. I'm too big of an HM fan not to buy it. And if anyone is on the fence about playing a Harvest Moon game, try it. It's a fantastic, and unique experience, especially if you're a fan of the Animal Crossing games.

If you'd like some more action and adventure with your farming, Rune Factory is amazing, too.
