The First 3DS Game From Marvelous Is Not Harvest Moon, But It Has Animals

003[1] (2)While many publishers are bringing tried and true franchises to the Nintendo 3DS, Marvelous is kicking off development with a brand new title. Their first game will be Animal Resort and it’s a zoo life game. Players take care of animals and try to attract a crowd. Getting more people through the gates leads to a bigger zoo.


The top screen showcases animals, like this Llama which we imagine will stretch its head outside of the screen. The bottom panel displays crowd reactions shown as cartoon bubbles.


Animal Resort has over 100 animals for Nintendo 3DS owners to manage when the game comes out in the spring.

    Wheres my Luminous Arc 4 3DS……hell where is my Luminous Arc 3!

  • NeoTechni

    I’m pretty sick of Harvest moon. It’s like playing Sim City 1, 20 times

  • Finally trule Marvelous are geniuses, other companies should take note…rather than relying on the norm release original new IP’s at the start of a console lifetime!

      1) I agree. Companies shouldn’t be too afraid of experimenting beyond the tried and true. But keep in mind that before they do anything to involved, they will always want to test the waters.

      2) Please spell/ grammar check your posts. You are a very prolific and well-liked poster, and you shouldn’t be showing us young’uns bad habits.

      3) (It wouldn’t hurt to tone down on the exclamation marks too.)

  • when will marvellous learn?

  • Isn’t that a camel?

    • Yeah, that’s definitely a camel.

      • Joanna

        Yeah I’m pretty sure it’s a camel. IIRC llamas have only one hump and camels have two.

    • Avojavo

      It’s a llama!
      And before you ask, I have no friggin’ clue on what the difference is. Other than where you can find them.

  • Something makes this look more 2D than a sprite based game. Must be the heavy use of shaders that look fine in motion but weird in still images.

    Well, no complains about the concept. After so many sequels and port announcements, games like this and Cubic Ninja are a breath of fresh air.
