The Harvest Moon series is one of those venerable franchises that has been around for a couple of decades yet continues to keep fans interested. The latest title in this popular franchise, Harvest Moon: Skytree Village, will be receiving a few updates soon. These updates will bring some interesting additions to the game, some that hardcore fans will welcome with open arms. An interesting point of these new downloadable content (DLC) updates is the date they are hitting.
“We love surprising fans with new downloadable content packs and continuing to keep the game fresh and exciting,” said Hiro Maekawa, President and CEO of Natsume. “We hope players will take to the new bachelor and bachelorette, and that they will become fan favorites!”
The first piece of DLC is a marriageable male character named Edmond who is a grand mage. He is the one responsible for training both Gareth and Tabitha. Edmond is apparently super smart (both book and real world), but hasn’t let it go to his head. Along with Edmonds’ DLC comes a statue of the Harvest Goddess.
The second piece of DLC brings fans a female marriageable character named Nova. Nova brings with her a rather interesting background story which includes her father being a human from the surface world and her mother being from the tribe of Gorgan from the Underworld Kingdom. Whew. Nova grew up in the Underworld, so she is not so adept or comfortable in the surface world and will require a bit of help to get things down right. Nova’s DLC includes a statue of the character Doc.
These downloadable content packs have a slightly staggered release schedule. Edmond and Nova will be available on January 24 for $2.99 each. Harvest Sprite Statue and Harvest Goddess Pergola will be released on February 14 for free.
