The first Famitsu scan

Natsume is preparing a 3DS version of Harvest Moon: Tale of Two Towns, but it's really just an enhanced version of the DS game and not a brand new game. The honour of being the first unique Harvest Moon for 3DS goes to Bokujou Monogatari: Hajimari no Daichi, or Harvest Moon: First Earth according to Andriasang.

Famitsu carries the first details of the farming title, with customisation one of the biggest features this time around: you'll be able to define your character's gender, skin, hair and eye colour, and throughout the game you can alter your hair style and clothing too.

If that weren't an exciting enough prospect, for the first time on a Nintendo handheld the game will be fully constructed from polygons. That's right: you'll finally be able to see a three-dimensional turnip.

In related news, Marvelous Entertainment, AQ Interactive and Livewire have all come together to form Marvelous AQL.

Harvest Moon: First Earth is due for release in Japan in early 2012.
