When the Harvest Moon: The Tale of Two Towns farming simulation game was first released for the Nintendo DS back in July 2010, it was only available in Japan. However, Natsume has just confirmed that the game is now heading to the Nintendo DS and 3DS in the US this summer.
According to a recent article by Mike Jackson over at computerandvideogames.com, the Harvest Moon: The Tale of Two Towns game tells the story of two towns — who were friendly neighbors at one point — that are locked in a battle over which town has the better food.
Players will of course have to choose which town they want to live in: the European-style BlueBell Town or the Eastern-influenced Konohaha. One they have made their choice, players must then join in the usual farming activities that you can expect from the Harvest Moon series.
Hiro Mackawa — CEO of Natsume — has promised gamers that the Harvest Moon: The Tale of Two Towns game features exciting new gameplay mechanics, a new cast of characters and fun festivals. You can view the Japanese launch trailer via the computerandvideogames.com website.
