Harvest Moon: The Land of Origin has the cuteness proximity trope in it. Neil, one of the bachelors you’ll meet if you play as a female rancher, is a bit on the unsociable side even though he has a cool personality. His weakness: animals.
For the first time, you don’t go straight to the alter. Harvest Moon: The Land of Origin has a dating phase. You start out as a friend and build your relationship by giving presents and going on events like nighttime stargazing. Watch out, dates can get jealous of other girls or guys.
When you find the love of your life you can propose… right after you buy a double bed. Other characters can propose to you too, Marvelous explains.
After you get married you can have kids, which you can take on family trips. Harvest Moon: The Land of Origin lets players leave the village to go on a honeymoon too. Harvest Moon: The Land of Origin comes out on February 23.
