Care for Animals, Forge Friendships and Shape the Land in Harvest Moon: The Lost Valley – An Adorable Farming Adventure for Nintendo 3DS
20th May 2015 – An exciting new life where you take care of animals, nurture flowers and crops, and make new friends awaits in Harvest Moon: The Lost Valley, releasing on 20th June for the Nintendo 3DS family of systems. Choose whether to play as a girl or boy, then get ready to shape the land to create your very own personalised farm. Fulfil the requests of visiting townsfolk, befriend them and even get married, all as part of a quest to restore the four seasons back to normal.
While exploring the mountains high above the Lost Valley one day, you become caught in a sudden snowstorm and find shelter with the help of a faint voice. When the storm lifts you find and help a kindly Harvest Sprite buried under the snow, who tells you all of the seasons in the valley have vanished except for winter. To return all four seasons to the Lost Valley you’ll need to farm the land with the help of the villagers, the Harvest Sprites, and even the Harvest Goddess.
In Harvest Moon: The Lost Valley you can experience the freedom to create your own farm your own way, by moulding and shaping the land in a fully 3D environment. Dig down into the ground to create caves or stack the earth high to form mountains. Create fishing ponds and crop fields, and build roads and bridges to reach and explore new areas. Context-sensitive controls help streamline the action so that shaping your own world has never been so easy. Simply approach an object or area in-game and choose to perform an action like sowing seeds, picking flowers, or fishing.
Throughout your farming adventure a wide variety of animals becomes available to nurture, including cows for milking, sheep for their wool and chickens that lay eggs to sell. Tend to your livestock everyday by stroking and brushing the animals, keeping them comfortable, well-fed and happy, and they will provide you with better quality produce to sell.
As well as the daily care of your farm you will also meet and befriend local townsfolk who will offer you quests and useful items to purchase. Among the cute cast of characters you’ll also encounter bachelors and bachelorettes who you may even end up calling your husband or wife.
Offering a world you can shape your own way and the joy of seeing your crops and animals grow and blossom as you care for them, Harvest Moon: The Lost Valley is available in stores and from Nintendo eShop for Nintendo 3DS from 20th June.
