OK, This Clearly Isn’t A Harvest Moon: Connect to a New Land Marriage Candidate

It wouldn’t be a Harvest Moon game without themed festivities, and during these, you’ll be competing with other villagers of Oak Town in Harvest Moon: Connect to a new Land. Here’s an introduction to some of the villagers that will be judging these events.


Matsuba (Crops Festival judge)


001 004

Since Matsuba lives quietly in the countryside, he’s a bit different from the others in town. He’s quite the talented veggie sommelier, and he can tell the freshness, location, and the person that grew the crop just by examining the vegetable.


Saffron (Cooking Festival judge)



After spending time researching ways to make delicious food for her busy husband, Saffron had become famous before she knew it. She even wrote a book called ‘Saffron’s Food I’d Like to Make,’ which became a best-seller in the world of Harvest Moon: Connect to a new Land.


Wantatan (Animal Festival judge)



Okay, when it comes to being different, this guy probably beats Matsuba by a country mile. In addition to being a mascot character loved by everyone, nobody really knows if he’s actually an animal or a guy inside a suit. He also finishes all his sentences with “woof”.


Harvest Moon: Connect to a New Land is slated for release on February 27, 2014 for Nintendo 3DS in Japan.

      He is obviously an Animal in a suit.

      • flameraver64

        Nah, he’s an animal in a human suit that’s wearing an animal suit

    Is A New Beginning a good game?
    I’ve been skipping Harvest Moons for a while cause they weren’t so good for me.

    I heard that the game has FPS drops, don’t know if they patched it somehow in European version. If the drops are like in Animal Parade then i’ll skip it.

      It’s a good game my only problem is that the beginning of the game, is so slow…Extremely the first two months is basically a had holding tutorial segment. It one of the better HMs because of the customization options, but the beginning can turn a lot of people off. I hope it something they improve on in this new installment.

    I wouldn’t rule anything if I were you…
    Seeing that mermaids, spirits, witches and repulsive merchants were marriage candidates in the series in the past :P

    Ha ha at first I thought the article was referring to the farmer judge, but then I saw the mascot suit person.

    … Although I kind of think it’s far more likely the mascot person becomes a gender neutral marriage option (man or woman, who knows?) than the big guy…
