I just got the option to trade through the multi-player mode so I thought it would be a good idea to set a section to trade friend codes.

I'm thinking of picking this up. I haven't played any HM in awhile. Is this one pretty good?

I'm a huge fan of the Harvest Moon series so my opinion is bias. That being said, if you can get past the first couple weeks of the game, you should really enjoy it. The game starts off really slow since there are only THREE people in town. People slowly arrive and once they do, things pick up. Every couple days the game would provide you a tutorial for something that could have been mentioned the first day. I think it was day 3 before they mentioned how to ship items.

I think it was Day 27 in the first Spring before the game opens up the multi-player mode and allows you to trade items online with other people. You can actually get some cool items this way.

I'm about to start Summer now so I can't wait to see what's ahead. :)

The game is now available at the Nintendo eShop. I couldn't find a direct link on the website but Natsume mentioned it on their Facebook and Twitter site.

More info here.

No free yak plush though.

I noticed that the Natsume store has the 15th anniversary edition with the giant plush cow back in stock until Dec. 14.

I went ahead and snagged one since I was disappointed to have missed it last time.

They want like $56 for the giant cow and the game. A little high for my taste. Still wish there was a DS version.

I wanna try this out as it looks fun.
I think I'd order for Natsume so I can get the Yak and only pay $40 and not that crazy $60 on Amazon.

I'm considering picking this up to kill time between now and the release of Animal Crossing and Rune Factory 4.

I haven't played Harvest Moon since Friends of Mineral Town. With Rune Factory out there it's hard to justify a Harvest Moon purchase.

Anyone feel the same? Or does anyone have any thoughts on this one? The customization is a big draw for me but beyond that I'm getting a "been there done that" feeling.

Is Rune factory 4 being released in the USA? I love rune factory and I would definitely buy a 3DS if that was the case, though I am pretty sure I will be buying one within the next 3 months anyways. I definitely want to get this game as well.

Edit: Rune Factory 4 has just been confirmed for the USA.
