    It is the Sovita Revolution :<
    *Hides under bed*

  • Hau To

    Even farmers can learn special attacks?! I guess there is something you can gain from farming after all.

    • Dexward

      It’s years of Harvest Moon training.

  • Ryujin

    That ghost girl…is ridiculously cute~

    • z_merquise

      I really like the ghost girl’s expression when she’s lifting the farmer guy or when she’s pushing his soul back to his body.

      Also, hot springs!!

  • mockturtle

    Have we heard anything about a US release for these, or not? I may or may not have been living under a rock recently.

    • Landale

      The first one should be out in the next few months.

  • MaximDualBlade

    I loved the trailer. I thought this would be the least interesting character but this trailer showed me hard work, cooperation, injustice and fights. Seems fun

  • z_merquise

    That looked so great. Again, for a DLC it sure got lot’s of new content like the previous one with the cat girl.

    Also that part at the end, is that also drawn by Vanillaware?

  • Seven of The Scions

    I want that ghost as DLC <3

  • JustThisOne

    Aha, this is all so cute! :> I like how she shoves his soul back in. like “No, no, no, get back in there.”

    But the fact that you get to play as a bunch of farmers is pretty cool. It’s not a character you usually get to play, and I like the idea of strength in numbers. Teary eyed camaraderie!

    • Duo Maxwell

      Admittedly I thought he’s kind of lame when they first reveal the characters DLCs. Now after seeing it in motion, they are actually cooler than I thought. They really did a good job with this one.

      And that ghost girl.

  • Randgriz

    I was wondering when the other DLC’s were going come along – cant wait until we gt the first one in the west.

  • Kornelious

    This looks pretty cool. Now if we could just get the first DLC :(

  • Nitraion

    Haha don’t mess with Farmer!!!

  • ChiffonCake

    That looked pretty great. A farmer’s rebellion is pretty unusual subject matter, so that’s interesting.

    I’m guessing that the ghost lady is a deceased relative of his, maybe his wife.

  • Herok♞

    As much as I hate the fact the port didn’t have the new content in the first place, the stuff looks really fun.

    • easter

      Nevermind releasing DLC for a game a year after release, of a port that’s 4 years old.

      I too think it should’ve been included from the beginning.

  • Got to say, I love the idea behind this DLC story. The farmers need a time in the spotlight every now and then, and it looks like they have an interesting gameplay mechanic to work with. Also curious about how the ghost figures in to all this? I’m a big fan of Japanese ghost stories.

    • AndyLC

      It might be his wife, you see the farmer paying respect to a wooden tablet, which is what you do for deceased family members.

      • That would make sense, especially if she had died in an event that led to the uprising for this particular DLC story.
        The ghost could even be his great-great-grandmother though. Which would also be interesting! =P

  • Christopher McNair

    Why are they still making regional only DLC for this game? As long as it took, they could have made a worldwide version of this for everyone to enjoy.

  • XiaomuArisu

    the farmer is more fun then I thought

  • Jaeger Knighty

    You don’t know how ready I am right now.

  • Taylor Davis

    I will admit; at first when I saw the dlcs art I really wasn’t interested in him but now I really want to play that guy. These dlcs keep getting better and better.

    That ghost girl is so cute!~

  • RagingTiger44

    I just need a release date and all will be well.

  • Yatol Charles

    That farmer is badass

  • jimmyb

    Someone correct me if I’m wrong, but is this an elaborate reference to the old kusoge Ikki? Machine translation even mentions the main character’s name being Gonbe…

  • AndyLC

    If that ghost helping the farmer is actually his deceased wife protecting him from harm, then I’m gonna cry when I beat this DLC content.

  • easter

    So… how much will this all cost and when will it ever come out to the West?

  • Ric Vazquez

    So much hype I have for Muramasa Rebirth’s DLC stories.
