Here’s The Harvest Moon: The Lost Valley US Launch Video

Natsume has released a brand new trailer for Harvest Moon: The Lost Valley on the Nintendo 3DS. Harvest Moon: The Lost Valley is scheduled to be released in North America on November 4th and will come to Europe sometime in early 2015.

Hiking your way through the mountains one day, you become caught in an unexpected snowstorm, and find shelter with the help of a faint voice. When you awaken, 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 4 seasons to the valley, you’ll need the help of the villagers, the Harvest Sprites, the Harvest Goddess, and even the King of the Underworld!

You’ve never played a Harvest Moon game quite like this! The first Harvest Moon game with a fully three-dimensional setting, allowing players to dig, stack, and till the soil any way they like!

New and innovative controls! With Harvest Moon: The Lost Valley’s context-sensitive controls, players won’t have to rummage through their rucksack anymore. Players can choose whether to play as a boy or a girl, woo their favorite bachelor or bachelorette, get married, and start a family!

Reinvented crop and animal systems! Discover new kinds of crops depending on where you plant them and each animal you raise will have its own personality.

Thanks, Michelle

Former EA CEO John Riccitiello has been announced as the CEO of Unity. Outgoing CEO, David Helgason, has said that Riccitiello is what he describes as a “heartfelt believer in the indie scene”. Here’s what John Riccitiello had to say about his new position at Unity.

“Unity has been a hugely positive force in the games industry for years,” Riccitiello said. “Now it’s my incredible fortune to have the opportunity to help guide Unity going forward. Unity is more than a great engine or packages of services, it’s an amazing and diverse community of developers, many of which are changing the way we think about game design and production. Unity’s mission – to democratize development – is an important one that I’m very happy to help drive forward.”
