The Creator Of Harvest Moon Inside Harvest Moon


image Yasuhiro Wada, the man behind the Harvest Moon games and current President of Marvelous Interactive, cleared time out of his day to make a cameo in Harvest Moon: Island of Happiness. The tribal tower guard known as Wada is based on the creator of the Harvest Moon series. Wada-san, to the best of my knowledge, doesn’t dress in a tunic in real life. He wore a suit when I met him and looked like this with longer hair. Whoever designed the Wada character in Harvest Moon: Island of Happiness used their imagination and Wada-san must have a sense of humor since it’s rather unusual to see a Japanese corporate executive show up in a video game as a caveman.
