Morphbug commented on Sakurai Explains Why Chrom Didn't Make It Into...:

@xj0462 ya rly. The original concept of smash used generic fighters, which looked suspiciously like Cpt. Falcon.

Considering Mr. Falcon lacked any sort of actual personality or even abilities, it is highly likely they recycled most of the moves of the the original fighters with him due to his body shape.

@Gorlokk from gameplay videos I have seen, it seems the platforming is harder because of the graphics, and some enemies blend into the backgrounds, which never happened in the original game.

That and the missing modes is what I guess people dislike about this version.

The DSiWare version can't be bought from the eShop at all anymore. Only in the DSi Shop.

Anyway, the 2D version already on the eShop is superior in content to this 3D remake. The only thing this one had going for it is its rarity.... And well that will be gone soon.

@Interneto yes they do, not a perfect hearth but their tail is shaped like that. It is probably a special pikachu though, but it's certainly female.

About its gender, if it is one special pikachu and not a global pikachu thing, my guess is that shes female to avoid "pika cross-dressing"

@Zombie_Barioth oh well, Natsume treats it as if Harvest Moon was always their very own series and it just ~casually~ happened to be composed mostly of translated Bokujo Monogatari games. So I guess that can't be the reason, since they obviously have full control of the name and what they can do with it :P

But who knows? At least Natsume's official stance is that there was no secret drama or harsh feelings of any kind between the companies,

In a slightly related note, Hometown Story really did come out of the mind of the creator of Harvest Moon, so the use of the name was kinda justified.

@Zombie_Barioth

From what I hear, there's no fancy Soap Opera stories behind this.

It seems just a case of Marvelous saying "we have means to publish ourselves now, kthxbye". Since Natsume owns the Harvest Moon name and actually helped develop the first few games very closely even before Marvelous came into the equation, they decided to try continuing their branch of the series on their own.

Morphbug commented on Natsume Announces Harvest Moon: The Lost Valle...:

@HeroOfCybertron you see, harvest moon as a series is owned by Natsume, but up until now it was made up completely of translations of games in the Bokumono series owned by Marvelous.

This is their first attempt at making a completely new and original Harvest Moon, and it will compete with Story of Seasons, which is the newest Bokumono game made by Marvelous.

Morphbug commented on XSeed Games Localizing Newest Harvest Moon for...:

@Keion that's what I meant, Marvelous never shared a slice of anything with natsume. Natsume bought the code of the games (literally) to sell it themselves as their own game.

This is a very experimental move, marvelous probably wants to test if publishing the game themselves will give them more money than just selling it to Natsume.
