ARRRRRRRRGH! As if the announcement that the next instalment of Harvest Moon was losing the Harvest Moon name wasn’t bad enough (Story of Seasons? Really? At best it sounds like a subtitle for a game.) now we know that since Natsume still own the name Harvest Moon they are releasing their own Harvest Moon game late this year. What a total clusterfuck. So, the REAL Harvest Moon game is Story of Seasons which will be released by XSeed. Then there is this new Harvest Moon game.. Which well.. Isn’t really a Harvest Moon game at all! New developers and all that. I am going to support the actual game and hope it sells but what a farm off!
I can’t see the Natsume Harvest Moon being any good as their attempts at 3DS ports of the games have led to glitchy attempts at a game that had the potential to brick any 3DS on sight. Well, maybe a little exagerated but they were fairly awful. I want it to be good as I am so incredibly nostalgic for Harvest Moon but I am torn. I will continue to support the real development team even if they have lost the name but.. That name does mean a lot to me.
