Harvest Moon a New Beginning Banner

Although a prolific franchise and one that appeared on 3DS initially with a DS dual release, Harvest Moon: A New Beginning represents the first departure for the series designed exclusively for the system. Its attempts to freshen up the series were a success, in our view, as we awarded it 8/10 in our review.

It was published last November in North America by Natsume, but as is often the case it's needed an alternative publisher to step up to localise it for Europe. Thankfully, a press release has revealed that Marvelous AQL Europe will pick up the mantle, with marketing and distribution being handled by Zen United; it's currently scheduled to arrive during Q3.

Certainly welcome news for fans of the series in Europe, and perhaps it'll find a good slot in the schedule between July and the end of September. How many of you Europeans think you'll pick this up?
