Harvest Moon: A New Beginning headed west

Latest Harvest Moon features customization, vacations.

Natsume has confirmed it will localize Harvest Moon: A New Beginning, known as Harvest Moon: The Land of Origin in Japan, for 3DS in North America.

The game, which debuted in Japan on February 23, adds character customization and vacation trips to the series’ standard formula of crop growing, animal raising, and life living in an all-new Harvest Moon built from the ground up for the handheld.

The English version will make its debut at E3 next month.

Screenshots of the title can be seen at the gallery.
