  1. Yasuhiro Wada, the designer behind the Harvest Moon franchise and Story of Seasons returns for a brand new title from TOYBOX Inc. Published by Aksys Games, Little Dragons Café has players managing the day to day affairs of a struggling café on the edge of civilization. Initially, players control one of two twin siblings, either a boy or a girl. Their working mom keeps them afloat by tending to their out of the way café, until one day she comes down with an illness that leaves her in a deep, unshakable sleep. Distraught, the children are visited by a quirky itinerant wizard. The strange old man presents the pair with a large egg and tells them that they must raise a dragon to adulthood to obtain the rare ingredient needed to wake their mother from her slumber. However, two kids can't really give a dragon the quality of life it needs to thrive without money! In order to support the business, the dragon, and themselves, the brother and sister have to take the reins of their little capitalist enterprise and turn it into a true tourist destination. To do that, they'll need all the help they can get between the abilities of their dragon, the wizard, a the motley crew of misfits who, for one reason or another, begin pitching in to make the café a success. While the other members of the team serve vital functions in the day-to-day running of the café, the dragon steals the show in terms of usefulness. Players can use the creature to discover new recipes in the wilds around their café as well as reach rare and delicious ingredients. Players will be responsible for raising their dragon. Feed it properly, nurture it with kindness and love, and it will grow larger. With each growth, the dragon gains new abilities, more stamina, and abilities - even flight. All of these a enable players to reach distant parts of the land to discover the rarest of ingredients and even long-lost legendary recipes that will bring more customers to the out-of-the-way little dragons café. With enough money, players can expand their cafe's facilities in a number of ways to better serve the ever increasing demands of the clientele. Every new recipe, if used correctly and made with the best ingredients, can help leave customers delighted and satisfied, helping to bring in more customers in the future. To get your hands on the freshest ingredients, players will have to grow produce themselves. Farm the land for fresh friends and veggies. Fish in the ocean to catch fish both common and rare. In these activities, it's really easy to spot the Harvest Moon influence. To get more clients, players have to ensure that not only their service is up to the task, but also that they show kindness and compassion for their neighbors. Little Dragons Café takes this quite literally by adding a popularity mechanic where if players help their neighbors, they (and by extension their cafe) becomes more popular. With enough money, effort, and time players will be able to unlock the secrets of their island home, cure their mother, and run the best gosh darn dragon café in all the lands! Little Dragons Cafe will release on August 24 for PlayStation 4 and Nintendo Switch.

  3. Stardew Valley stands as one of those rare projects that's both a solo developer project and a title that aimed to revive and popularize an entire genre. Released in 2016 by Eric Barone (aka ConcernedApe), Stardew Valley became a sensation for its well realized vision of a rural farming community rich in character and the family farm that players restore to glory that helps to bring them all together. Barone conceived of the project as a way to correct what he saw as a failing in more recent Harvest Moon titles - and his work proved to be extremely popular. To date, Stardew Valley has been ported to almost every system out there (and it just recently received an update that adds horses in hats and multiplayer)! Does Stardew Valley surpass Harvest Moon as the most important farming sim in modern gaming? Each week we will be tackling a video game, old or new, that at least one of us believes deserves to stand as one of the greatest games of all time. We'll dive into its history, development, and gameplay, while trying to argue for or against the game of the week. Sometimes we will be in harmonious agreement, other times we might be fighting a bitter battle to the very end. However each episode shakes out, we hope that everyone who listens will find the show entertaining and informative. Outro music: The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time 'Gerudo Desert Party' by Reuben6 (http://ocremix.org/remix/OCR03720) You can download or listen to the podcast over on Soundcloud, our hosting site, and iTunes.

  5. Natsume is gearing up for the launch of Harvest Moon: Light of Hope, the first game in the franchise's 20 year history to release on PC. Though Light of Hope will also release for Nintendo Switch and PlayStation 4, the PC version has been finished ahead of schedule and will release this year with the console versions following in 2018. "Due to the hard work of our team, development for Harvest Moon: Light of Hope for PC ran ahead of schedule, allowing us to release the game early to PC players," said Hiro Maekawa, President & CEO of Natsume. "We have enjoyed creating an all-new game that honors 20 years of Harvest Moon, and what's more, the franchise will finally be available for the first time on PC, something fans have long asked for!" Light of Hope has players shipwrecked and washed up in a small harbor town devastated by the same storm that sunk the player's ship. With a small farm, players can help to rebuild the town and rekindle the lighthouse. Natsume has been trying to put the past two decades of Harvest Moon on full display in the newest game with familiar faces from previous titles making appearances along with the familiar gameplay players have been itching for. The newest and most interesting mechanic is the ability to slowly unlock the town by repairing its damaged structures, bringing new opportunities and characters with each repaired building. A point of contention among some fans, Light of Hope will be making use of what Natsume has dubbed a retro plus aesthetic. The visuals aim to recapture an SNES feel while putting a modern twist on everything. Some vocal fans haven't been too pleased with the aesthetic, but the graphics undoubtedly look unique. In celebration of the series' 20th anniversary, Natsume has decided to hold a drawing contest on their Facebook page. They want fans to submit original drawings of their favorite Harvest Moon characters, animals, and events before 2017 comes to a close. Fifteen winners will be chosen, and each will receive some special Natsume prizes. Harvest Moon: Light of Hope releases on November 14 for PC and early 2018 for PS4 and Switch.

  7. Get ready for some farming nostalgia and small town romance, Natsume stealth released their 2003 life simulator Harvest Moon: A Wonderful Life onto the PlayStation Network for PlayStation 4. This move comes as part of the company's celebration of the 20th anniversary of the Harvest Moon series. A Wonderful Life represents the first of two games from the PS2/GameCube era to see a re-release on PS4. In A Wonderful Life, players start with next to nothing aside from a rundown farm with a cow and a dog. Over the course of a few seasons in-game, players can build the farm up into a production juggernaut or let it be and spent their time walking around the nearby town talking with the locals and wooing the several eligible romance options. Players can eventually marry their digital partner and have a kid who then grows up into an adult. The special edition of A Wonderful Life comes with a number of welcome additions to the original game. Players have an additional love interest, more animal types, and the option to continue playing after the end of the story mode. There are also a number of quality of life changes that veterans will likely notice. Harvest Moon: A Wonderful Life is now on PSN for $14.99 - who else is going to be farming up a storm in short order?

  9. Calling all Nintendo 3DS players (and some PlayStation 4 fans), do I have some games for you! Natsume, perched around a life-sized inflatable tree and stuffed farm animals, showcased three show stopping games that generated lines as long as the E3 convention hall. Wild Guns Reloaded made a splash as Natsume brought back the western shooting gallery title in fully remastered glory for the PlayStation 4. Play as one of the two classic gunslingers, or choose from two brand new ones, and shoot out the bad guys in this couch party extravaganza. Wild Guns Reloaded does not have a release date yet, so stay tuned. River City: Tokyo Rumble is the same side scrolling beat-em-up game that Japanese fans know and love and will be coming to the West for the first time. Play as high school student Kunio and chase out some nefarious gang members with your fists. River City: Tokyo Rumble will be released this summer for Nintendo 3DS. Harvest Moon: Skytree Village is the farming simulator that we all know and love, only this time they've addressed all the concerns that fans had in the past. With new controls, camera angles, and faster response times, Skytree Village seems to be the answer that many fans of the series have been waiting for. Harvest Moon: Skytree Village still does not have a release date for Nintendo 3DS, so stay tuned!

  11. It’s Day 0 here at E3, and Natsume has released their first official trailer for their newest installment in their Nintendo 3DS Harvest Moon series, Harvest Moon: Skytree Village. This game, like its predecessors, follows the story of a once lush and vibrant town now dull and dying. It’s up to you to revive the seven Skytrees, restore the power of the Harvest Goddess, and bring the town back to life! Play as a boy or girl, meet some new faces – and a few familiar ones – and discover new and exciting crops, flowers, and fish. This game will introduce a user-friendly interface that lets you customize your character, home, farm, and the land surrounding it. This allows the user to create hills, rivers, ponds, and more! "We've revisited each and every part of what makes a Harvest Moon game, and are excited at the end result," said Taka Maekawa, Producer of the Harvest Moon series. If you’re a fan of Natsume and Marvelous games, then you’ll already know that Natsume has decided to part ways from their American publishing company Xseed back in 2014. Though the English translation of the title Bokujō Monogatari belongs to Xseed, Natsume will continue to release their version of the game while Xseed releases theirs in the United States. Each game will be a farming simulator, but very different in their own right. Harvest Moon: Skytree Village does not have a release date, so stay tuned for more info.
