New Harvest Moon: The Lost Valley Details Released
Natsume Inc. has recently released some new information on their upcoming game
Harvest Moon: The Lost Valley.
Harvest Moon: The Lost Valley is the latest installment of the Harvest Moon franchise. One of the newest features introduced in this game is personality traits for animals, also called â€˜skills.â€™ Skills affect a number of things in the game; for instance, animals that prefer certain seasons level up after during said seasons, animals that hate being dirty gain greater affection boosts through cleaning, and some animals produce higher quality goods while others produce a greater number of goods. Animals can learn new skills as time goes on and it is also possible to breed certain skills into animals; sometimes doing so causes a skill to level up into something better.
This game features a customizable world that allows players to shape their fields to their own liking. The game will also feature DLC, possibly to give players who have achieved most of the goals in the main game something new to strive for. The game currently has no solid release date but is predicted to launch sometime in 2014.
