The 500 point ($5) expansion also adds a vegetable decor to the town. Marvelous plans to roll out more add-ons each month for 500 Wii Points a piece.

No plans have been announced for an international release, but Harvest Moon Series: Ranch Store appears to big to make only in Japan. Also, what Harvest Moon game has Natsume skipped?
