Harvest Moon: Connect To A New Land’s First Trailer Shows Off Safaris

By Sato . December 18, 2013 . 5:40pm

In this morning’s Japanese Nintendo Direct, we got a look at Harvest Moon: Connect to a New Land’s first trailer, which showed off some of the game’s features.



At 0:42 we get a look at various farm activities in the game, such as taking care of crops and livestock. Next, they show a little bit of the Trade Station, where you’ll get to trade goods to different countries around the world.


The Safari feature in the video also gives us a glimpse at how you’ll be interacting with different animals. It’s called a Safari, but there seems to be different types of terrains such as snowy areas with penguins, so we might be seeing many other new animals that have yet to be seen in the series.


We also get a look at the relationship system that allows you to marry a partner and start a family. Finally, the trailer shares a look at the multiplayer feature, where you’ll get to visit your friends’ ranches and also give items as presents. Players you encounter through the Nintendo 3DS StreetPass features will also randomly appear in your town.


Harvest Moon: Connect to a New Land will be coming out on February 27, 2014 in Japan, for Nintendo 3DS.

    As much as i like harvest moon. I surely miss rune factory with it’s combat and wacky character.

    • serpentear

      Also the story. Rf4 is my first rf and first arc really droves me to tears.

  • luckgandor

    Looks great. Hopefully Marvelous won’t butcher the localization with typos. Their localization of A New Beginning left a bad taste in my mouth.

    • I thought MMV never do the translation/localization? Or do they in EU?

      • luckgandor

        No, pretty sure you’re right. I somehow typed Marvelous when I meant Natsume. (I would never be cut out to do localizations myself, as I just demonstrated.)

        • Oh, okay, haha.

          I cannot agree more though. Kind of sad to hear they’re still having so many problems with typos and such. I don’t know what it is about them, but you’d think after so many years (and plenty of valid complaining and criticism) they would do better work there. =v=;

    • Arrei

      Natsume’s been making tons of typos since their inception, I personally doubt that’ll change any time soon.

    • Roll Caskett

      As long as you understand it doesn’t matter. Better have a localization with typos than not having the game being localized at all. Pick you poison

  • Mordina

    Meep all the cute animals <3 I want this game real bad.

  • AkiraScare

    DAMN!!!! for a moment i though it was live action… Looks cool safari is like Pokemon (^_^)

  • serpentear

    Maybe I’m in the minority but I really hate the blueprint system. It render my money useless and really theres no reason to sell farm products. I really hope they tone that down in this game.

  • Hinataharem

    Wow you can harvest crops fast! That is amazing!

  • Lemski07

    the bachelorettes I think is much better than ANB

  • Savage Sui ♥

    This looks really nice so far :3 I’ve always loved the Harvest Moon games since I was a pretty young kid and I don’t see myself ever growing out of ’em~

  • I can’t wait to see this localized. It’s looking amazing.

    And speed harvesting and actual multiplayer farming! And… bunnies?!

  • Arz

    Did I miss something or is Harvest Moon a Nintendo exclusive now?

  • Bigabu Beaze

    Watching this made me want Steambot Chronicles 2. :[

  • Lan

    The only way I’m touching this is if it has better music than A New Beginning. While I have dozens of hours in that game my major gripe with it is its soundtrack is bad, well that and the fact that anything you pick up is automatically put in your bag which is annoying.

  • TheExile285

    This looks pretty nice graphically
