Harvest Moon: It’s a Wonderful Life And River King Are New PlayStation 2 Classics


Natsume are releasing Harvest Moon: It’s a Wonderful Life as a PlayStation 2 Classic via the PlayStation Network this week. Originally released for the GameCube, this is the very Harvest Moon game that allowed the player to have children after marriage, and then play as their kids.


The PlayStation 2 version of the game added a few new features when it was released a year later. It lets you play either as a boy or a girl child in the game’s second half, and adds a fourth bachelorette, Lumina, as well.


Also out from Natsume as a PS2 Classic this week is River King: A Wonderful Journey, another in their long-running simulation-meets-fishing RPG series.
