Natsume, the house that Harvest Moon built, has announced plans to bring Harvest Moon: The Tale of Two Towns over to North America for both Nintendo DS and 3DS, according to a Facebook post.

While the company explained this isn't the 3DS Harvest Moon game originally announced at E3 2010, leaving us to wonder if the mention of 3DS is just to remind people it will work on the new 3D-enabled console.

From screenshots and videos of the Japanese version, the game shares the same graphical style as predecessor Harvest Moon: Grand Bazaar, but with an all-new story about feuding mayors in neighbouring villages. Animal additions include bees, owls and alpacas.

Expect more information at E3 2011 in early June.

Today we are revealing an exclusive to you, our most loyal fans. We are happy to announce Harvest Moon: The Tale of Two Towns for the DS and 3DS coming later this year! Fill up your watering can and sharpen your hoe, because it's time for an all-new farming adventure! More details to come in the near future, including some exciting news at E3.
