If crop rotation, livestock breeding and getting up at the crack of dawn seem like entertaining concepts to you, then you’ll no doubt be over the 'moon' (ho ho!) with the latest serving of retro goodness on the European Virtual Console.

It’s hard to believe that a game about farming could be so popular, but Natsume’s Harvest Moon series has been going strong for a decade now and shows no signs of running out of steam. You can now revisit the first game in this franchise for the sum of 800 Wii points. It comes highly recommended by our friends at Virtual Console Reviews.

Sadly this is the only release on the European Virtual Console this week – hopefully normal service will be resumed next week and we’ll have a few more titles to choose from.
