The downside is Harvest Moon Wii is not going to appear until the second quarter of 2008, but Puzzle de Harvest Moon is finally coming out later this year.
Here is glance at the release schedule:
July – Harvest Moon: Boy and Girl (PSP)
August – Rune Factory: A Fantasy Harvest Moon (DS)
October – Puzzle de Harvest Moon (DS)
October – Innocent Life: A Futuristic Harvest Moon Special Edition (PS2)
Q1 2008 – Harvest Moon DS: Cute (DS)
Q2 2008 – Harvest Moon: Island of Happiness (DS)
Q2 2008 – Harvest Moon Wii (Wii, obviously)
Notably absent from the list is Harvest Moon: Magical Melody for the Wii, which Rising Star games is going to release in Europe. I asked if Natsume was going to release this in North America and the answer was a clear maybe. They have not had a chance to look at the Wii version yet and if it makes good use of the Wii remote there is a possibility it will be released outside of Europe. On the other hand if it’s a quick and dirty port it’s not going to come out.
