Natsume Farming More Harvest Moon

hmoon Natsume working on another Harvest Moon game? No way! It looks like the publisher who tirelessly localizes Harvest Moon games for North America has another one on deck according to retail leak by good old Gamefly. They have Harvest Moon: Frantic Farming in their system slated to come out late spring-ish on the Nintendo DS. We’ll ignore the release date and focus on the existence of the game.


Hmm… which Harvest Moon game could Harvest Moon: Frantic Farming be? I’m going to guess Harvest Moon: Sparkling Sun and Companions which came out in Japan last February since it’s for the DS and fits the usual one year localization gap. The only thing that doesn’t fit nicely into the hypothesis is the “frantic” part of the subtitle. Farming should be less hustle and bustle in Harvest Moon: Sparkling Sun and Companions since players have the choice of the touch screen or button controls. Perhaps, Natsume’s subtitle is referring to the new pet mini games like Frisbee or the fact that you can toss monkeys.

    I hope it’s Shining Sun and Friends! I avoided Island of Happiness because of the negative reviews, but supposedly SS&F fixed the major problems with that game.

    You’d be guessing wrong… :)

    • OK! I’ll take your word. :) Somehow this doesn’t sound like the latest DS game either so… I guess this could be Puzzle de Harvest Moon 2?

  • None

    Natsume’s Harvest Moon: Frantic Farming is, Shining Sun and Friends? :)

  • Woohoo, more Harvest Moon!

    Ah geez, these are coming out way faster than I can keep up with them–I haven’t even gotten my hands on Rune Factory 2 yet!

    Well, that’s the IoH female PC, so I can’t imagine it’s anything other than SSaF…
