Harvest Moon: Connect to a New Land will have more connectivity features with your friends and also neighboring countries in the game, along with twice the variety of animals from the past series. Today, Marvelous AQL introduced us to the protagonists and two potential life-partners in the upcoming farm simulation title.
The male protagonist loves being outdoors, and grew up playing by the beaches and mountains. After showing an interest in doing work as a rancher, he followed his desire to do just that by moving into Oak Town.
This will be his first time taking care of crops and handling animals, so he’ll have a lot of challenges awaiting him in his new life. He’s a curious young man who’s always eager to learn more.
Similar to her male counterpart, the female protagonist will be new to Oak Town, as she also has shown interest in doing work as a rancher. She’s a kind-hearted young lady who loves taking care of animals and raising crops.
No matter how difficult a task, the pure-hearted young girl will always do her best with the brightest of smiles.
Similar to past titles of the Harvest Moon series, you’ll get to date and eventually fall in love and marry a suitable partner. Here’s a look at two potential partner candidates, living in Oak Town.
Lily is a weather forecaster with an energetic personality and loves children. When she’s not reporting on the latest weather, she also works as a sing-along lady for a children’s program.
On her days off, she takes care of her younger sister, and spends time with the elderly. She’s quite the popular young lady of Oak Town, as she brings smiles wherever she goes.
Raegar is a young man who works as a chef at the restaurant. He’s a busybody who acts upon his impulses, and has confidence in his excellent culinary skills.
Thanks to his dashing good looks and easy-going personality, he is often surrounded by other ladies. For this reason, he may come off as one who likes to fool around, but he’s actually quite the serious person, deep down.
In addition to revealing the new characters, Marvelous AQL also announced that a special Angora Rabbit charm strap will come with the first print copies of the game.
Harvest Moon: Connect to a New Land will be available in February 2014 for Nintendo 3DS.
