Use the hoe!

Three weeks ago Marvelous AQL announced a new Harvest Moon on 3DS, and now we have the first in-game footage from upcoming agricultural adventure Bokujou Monogatari: Hajimari no Daichi, or Harvest Moon: First Earth.

As you can see it's business as usual in Harvest Moon world, with chickens to fuss over, fields to till and giant pandas to ride. It may look different with the 3D effect on, but to our experienced farmers' eyes the fields look particularly enormous, and that panda doesn't appear to be moving too smoothly. Still, the game's not out until next year, giving Marvelous AQL plenty of time to work its green-fingered magic.
