Natsume Reveals Harvest Moon: A New Beginning 15th Anniversary Edition

Posted by Katy Ellis

More importantly, it includes a 12-inch cuddly cow

Today Natsume Inc. has announced that a 15th Anniversary Edition of the upcoming 3DS title, Harvest Moon: A New Beginning, will be heading to North America on 6th November.

We recently reported that those who pre-order the normal version of the game through GameStop or Natsume's online store will receive a cute Yak plushie bundled with their game. However, those who decide to grab the Anniversary Edition from Natsume's online shop will instead be rewarded with a rather sweet twelve-inch cuddly cow at which to gaze lovingly.

President and CEO of Natsume, Hiro Maekawa stated the following:

Fans have been anticipating an official release date for Harvest Moon: A New Beginning since it was announced in May. As a treat to our fans, new and old, we have a remarkable 15th Anniversary Edition with a never-before-seen plushie to go with it!

The 15th Anniversary Edition is currently advertised at $49.99, whereas the Yak version is listed at $39.99. You can pre-order from 24th September onwards, so choose your new plushie wisely. Let's face it, though, the cow is cuter.

10 dollars for a cow plush ???
thats insane !!
wait for them on ebay, theyll go waaaay cheaper

@Samholy: I highly doubt that they will go cheaper than 10 dollars on Ebay.

So is this like a reboot of the HM series?

Damn. Now I need to preorder this.

Oh wait, I just read more info, to get the cow you need to preorder from, and they only ship to US addresses............................................................

The cow is also larger than the yak:

@Samholy: Do you know how Ebay works? Limited edition items that go on sale on Ebay don't go for cheaper price.

tbh, pre-order goodies tend to disappear from gamestoppos...the buyer is just told they didn't come in or they've run out or some other nonsense whilst the goodies just go home with the person who tells them that.

i will pre-order this one from natsume: i want that cow and i've waited a long time for this game. there is nothing like the feeling that comes when beginning a new HM game, imo.

Exactly what the above poster said. Unless you absolutely have to have it on day one, just pre-order from
