Harvest Moon: A New Beginning Screenshots Learn English

Natsume will be publishing Harvest Moon: A New Beginning for the Nintendo 3DS in Q4 of this year, and have released the first batch of English screenshots from the game. The English screens show off a bunch of new features such as constructing your ranch, creating your own custom character, and the game’s characters. Take a look at them below:




Food for thought:

Natsume sure know how to take screenshots. These look much nicer than the terrible screens Marvelous AQL released early on—of their own game!

  • I hope the ability to customize your character becomes standard in every game after this one. In a series like this, it seems like that ability was a long time coming.

    The characters in this one have a very “Mineral Town” art feel to them, which is very nice.

  • KotaroInugami

    Love it. Love it all… The yak looks very… “alert”…

  • Sweet Sui ♥

    This game looks absolutely adorable (^o^)/
    I love the focus on customization and, while the graphics aren’t the greatest, there’s something about them that seems to fit. The Harvest Moon games weren’t about ultra-realistic graphics in the first place anyways. I can hardly wait to play this game~ hopefully the release date doesn’t get pushed back into obscurity…it probably will though, it’s pretty common for the Harvest Moon/Rune Factory games here in the United States (-_-“) Oh well, as long as we eventually get it, that’s all that matters, lol.

      Its like all the Mario games. Harvest Moon has its own style. =^w^=~

      • Sweet Sui ♥

        Of course ^_^ Harvest Moon was always cartoon-like and chibi-ish to begin with; the graphics are what help add to it’s charm, lol.

  • Nyandroid

    Learn English? Was anyone else thinking the Japanese version had an english class/lesson in it? And that maybe we would get japanese? owo;~
    Anyway. This looks beautiful! Really cute and fun. And I’ve said this before and Ill say it again: Customization is ALWAYS good in my books! I think Ill be picking this one up.

  • MrOrpheus

    I’ll be terribly angry if I can’t marry Dunhill while playing as a female. Doubly so if I can’t as a male.

  • Ace.Of Hearts♥

    *cue high pitched fangirl squealing* soooo cute!!! omg!! even though I’ve seen these screens before.. AMIR!!!!!!!!!! mine!!!!!!! ah they changed Selca’s name but whatever!!! I can’t wait til Australia gets it!!! but the only huge problem is almost all the bachelors look hot/cute…I’m torn between Amir, Sanjay and Neil… The female harvest sprite is so cute!!Wonder how many save files there will be

    • Lisa Fraulein

      Oh yeah! Just notice that. Hope he’s one of the regular guys. He’s special in Bazaar, but I wished I could see him more…

  • This game looks absolutely amazing. I wouldn’t be surprised if it ended up being the best Harvest Moon ever. I’m so excited!

    • puchinri

      That is, until the next console title comes out, right~? :’D
      (Hopefully it compares at least! >u<)

  • puchinri

    Hehe, I like the character models more than the art. Almost way more.

    It’s been fun keeping track of the JP version, so I’m glad to see some of the EN. I’m really looking forward to this title~.

  • Lisa Fraulein

    Ooooh..Allen looks so dazzling.. Already set my eyes on him (if he’s dateable)

  • I am really excited for this game! One of the reasons why I’m buying a 3DS. :) I do hope they announced the release date soon. I agree that it has some Back to Nature feel to it. I feel nostalgic. *_*

  • Barrylocke89

    Hopefully this game does well in terms of the quality control. From what I’ve heard, The Tale of Two Towns (specifically the 3DS version) had some nasty bugs in it.

    Now that I think about it, Harvest Moon DS was also supposed to be pretty buggy, which wasn’t fixed until they released Harvest Moon DS Cute (and of course then some people may not want it because you have to play as a female).

    • Ben Kapferer

       Yeah; sometimes, it seems like Natsume does not have their head on straight in terms of localization and porting.

  • Those character creation screenies have just sold me this game even more(✿❛◡❛)ノ
