Natsume prepares to release a long list of Harvest Moon games

By Spencer . June 7, 2007 . 5:49pm

The Harvest Moon train isn’t taking a break after the releases of Innocent Life: A Futuristic Harvest Moon for the PSP and Rune Factory: A Fantasy Harvest Moon for the Nintendo DS. Natsume’s E3 lineup includes:


Harvest Moon 2 (DS)

Harvest Moon DS Cute (DS)

Harvest Moon Wii (Wii)

Harvest Moon: Boy and Girl (PSP)

Innocent Life: A Futuristic Harvest Moon Special Edition (PS2)

Puzzle de Harvest Moon (DS)

Rune Factory: A Fantasy Harvest Moon (DS)


It was previously unknown if Natsume had any interest in bringing Shin Bokujou Monogatari: Pure Innocent Life, an extended version of Innocent Life: A Futuristic Harvest Moon outside of Japan. But it looks like they made a clear decision since Innocent Life: A Futuristic Harvest Moon Special Edition is on their list. Harvest Moon DS Cute sounds like it is Bokujou Monogatari: Colobocle Station for Girls which was released in Japan in 2005 and it’s clear that we are going to get Harvest Moon: Tree of Peace, possibly this year.


There are lots of reasons for Harvest Moon fans to be happy with this E3 ‘07 line up and Natsume has one other notable title, River King: Wonderland. It’s probably the US title for Kawa no Nushi Tsuri DS, a fishing RPG where you use the stylus to guide a fishing line.

    Hope Harvest Moon DS Cute is the HMDS For Girls, I really want that.

  • Ana

    I really hope HM DS Cute is the girl’s version too. I practically gave up waiting for that title, thinking they’d never release it in English. I can’t think of anything else it can be, so I’ll be hopeful once more!

  • I sort of wish they used some of the actual titles from the Japanese games rather than the system they are coming out on, like they did for Magical Melody. I guess the only reason they did that was because Harvest Moon: Gamecube would have a funny ring to it.

  • Mai

    Harvest Moon DS Cute I belive is the Girl version. I so happy that they are bringing it to the States. I want that game and The 2 One. The girl you can be is my cats name that the funny thing about it and its soo cute looking. Can’t wait!

  • Mai

    Whoops. I have only one cat not alot with the name. Sorry about that.

  • Lola

    Harvest Moon ds Cute is sooooo cool! You can play as a blonde or brunett and the guys change their clothes everyday. As long as i dont have to find 60 sprites before I marry its all good. When is its coming to the states? Like whens the release date???? help me out ppls!
    :) :) :) ;) Lola

  • Autumn

    I have seen the screens for this game and am sooo excited. I can’t wait, I found some sites that show this game like I think is the name of the site. Soo cool I would love to be blond in the game, and can not wait I’ll have to being scrimping and saving! Byes

  • Tess

    I’m so glad that Harvest Moon DS Cute will come out!!! I love Steiner! Thing is, I don’t have a DS *cry* Is that the only system they’re making it on? Cuz I only got a Gameboy SP and a Gamecube…plus some other older systems. I will be getting a PS2 soon tho. does anyone know if Cute will only be on DS? thx

  • Bianca

    sorry Tess but Cute will most likely be on the DS only :(

  • Person

  • what inposiple

  • I can’t wait for Harvest Moon DS Cute. :)

  • Boredom

    When i heard that the Boy DS version stops once you get married i was pretty uneasy about buying the game. But it DS Cute you get to keep playing after the wedding which is awsome, its totally going to be worth the wait.
    ;___: though i wanted it for christmas…
    Person are you sure it comes out on Jan. 7th?

  • Eve

    i really2 can’t wait for harvest moon DS cute to come out! does anybody know exactly what date it will come out?

  • Eve

    i’ve been playing harvest moon DS-boy version for a while, and it’s not long-lasting. i get bored with it in no time. when i heard about the HMDS for girl, i really got exicted. i hope it’ll come out soon~ ;)

  • Eve

    i’ve been playing harvest moon DS-boy version for a while, and i get bored with it in no time. Dunno, i think it’ll be much more interesting if i play the girl version. it’s really cool… i hope it’ll come out soon~

  • Eve

    i’ve been playing harvest moon DS for a while, and i get bored with it in no time. dunno, i think the girl version will be much more interesting… i hope it’ll come out soon~

  • Lindsay

    january 7th? i guess. i can wait until then. better than waiting until like next summer right?

  • Chris

    So it is coming out January 7th? Of 2008! That stinks I was going to get it for Christmas.I have it for GBA.

  • Lea

    I have the DS Boy game and I’m maried. Still! But yeah… U do get bord really quickly… No special features!

  • Gen

    I’ve been waiting so long for the “sprite station for girl” to come out;
    it will defiantly be more interesting than the original; especially when you consider that the mineral town boys are to be bachelors, and the new Steiner character. He seems like he’s worth checking out. especially considering the lack of decent guys who lived in the valley in AWL.
    i mean, really-
    your options before were limited to:
    A.) a lazy playboy (rock)
    B.) a depressed Elvis look-alike (marlin)
    C.) a leprechaun (gustafa)

    Ahhh… it’ll be so nice to finally have some decent guys in the valley!!!

  • duh totally the guys sucked i cant wait for steiner uuuuuuuuuuuuuuuugh.
    one month. my bro totally hates HM but hes crazy. my awesome game freak cuz finally got HM for DS he sucks at it 11 but i hav all the HM games (excluding PS1,PS2,PS3 and PSP)i lov em

  • beth

    anyone know if you have to get 60 sprites on the girls’ version before you can marry? Because in the boys, I had 56 sprites and Muffy at a red heart, but then it must have been my last year because her heart level started to decrease, and is now at grey again. arrg! I hate the sprites part of the game! I wish they could make a HM game where you could play a girl or a boy, and absolutely no harvest sprites anywhere! that would be so much better!

  • Skye

    yeah I really want this game it looks awsome!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    but I totally agree that the 60 sprite thing is sooooooooo annoying why don’t they do thirty sprites or 20 or 15 or 10 or 5 o how bout none at all!!!!!! I’ve been playng HM DS 4 8 game years and i’m still not married!!!!!!!!!!!!!! yeah and HM magical melody (for game cube ) u can play as a girl or boy & u don’t really (that I know ) have to collet notes! It’s really fun! i’d be the blonde girly and ethier marry the thief ,soooo handsome, Kai who can’t love him? or Cliff call me boring but I married him twice he is soooooo awsome I deleted one game cuz I also luv Ann . I may not marry the thief cuz he may be to hard I marry everyone easy! Muffy,mary, Popuri,doc, Ann(Magical melody), annnnnddddd Cliff ( is he easy I think so well he was easy 4 me anyways) I can’t wait for HM island of happiness as well

  • paramore

    cute is the girls version but ive been looking around and it seems like its just like exactly the same as the boy version only a girl

  • Alex

    Yay! So happy that DS Cute comes out March 25!

  • Brunette

    Me 2! I’m so excited.I cant w8 4 it. My bro says i am so crazy about it. lol
    >_< i am gonna get steiner ^_^

  • Harvest Moon Ds Cute is coming in five days everyone. It sells at Gamestop or EBGames on the 26th of this month, March for 30 bucks.
    You can play as the brunette or blonde from FoMT and AnWL.

    You can also marry a Mineral Bachelor and the game does not end.The bachelors are Carter, Griffin, Marlin, Rock, Gustafa and the special boy, Skye who shows up at night.The Mineral Bachelors are Cliff, Gray, Doctor Trent, Rick and Kai.They change their clothes everyday.

    Also, you can see all the heart events of the special girls int he original HM DS but unlike the Japanese Version, you cannot marry them.Marrying them is meaning being a best friend relation ship.You propose and have a best friends ceremony and you both get a baby.It is only for the Japanese version.

    The big bonus is that this game had all the massive bugs from HM DS removed.I will marry Trent and Skye.

    Oh and the best part is that depending on your farm degree level, you can change your clothes and the interior of your home.Also, you may have a female child.

  • George

    hey chilluns, when does the new one come out for ps2?

  • Rach

    hey I really think they should release more harvest moon games in the UK coz I WANT 2 COLLECT THEM ALL! lol

  • Rach

    hey I really think they should release more harvest moon games in the UK coz I WANT 2 COLLECT THEM ALL! lol xx

  • Rori

    In Harvest Moon DS Cute im trying to decide who 2 marry. I dont have the mineral town version so I cant connect to it. My choices would b Kai, Marlin, and possibly Skye. Who do I marry? HELP!!!
    My friend is crazy about Rock and his good looks. Is that gross or good? HELP!!!
    PS I was hoping to have a girl child.

    I got my harvest moon ds cute game for $30 at Game Stop.
    BEST GAME EVER! There are so many more bachelors that make it a cool game.

  • Jamie

    Give me a break, Rori. It’s not that hard to pick a guy!
    The best bachelor is Skye, but, if you don’t like him…you should pick Kai. They are both 2 cute!
    But, it is a good game and anyone should buy it, especially if you liked the other harvest moon games cuz it has the bachelors from Forget-me-not and Mineral Town. The whole ‘you need to save 60 sprites 2 b able to marry is kinda stinky though.

  • Siarra

    i no i hate the whole u cant marry till u got 60 sprites thing!!! so far i only found like three sprites but i just got the game recently. and theres no question about it im definatly gonna marry skye cause hes the best looking one!!:p

  • Siarra

    ok now ive got like 25 sprites cause ive been playing it for 2 days straight!!!

  • skyeluver

    thnx alex! i wanted to know when it comes out! =D

  • pandalu

    ive been wanting to know! =D
