Pre-order Now To Receive A Special Edition Harvest Moon Plush Pig!

Burlingame, Calif., October 14, 2009 – Natsume Inc., a worldwide developer and publisher of family-oriented video games, announced today that Harvest
Moon: Sunshine Islands for the Nintendo DS™ has gone gold. The next entry in the popular Harvest Moon series will launch November 10 for an MSRP of $29.99, and is rated E for Everyone by the ESRB.

In Harvest Moon: Sunshine Islands, players rejoin all of the beloved characters from Harvest Moon: Island of Happiness, and meet some new faces as well! Years ago, a powerful earthquake struck the Sunshine Islands chain, and most of the islands sank forever…or did they? It’s up to the player to find the magical Sun Stones and raise the sunken islands. As they do, they’ll meet new characters, harvest new crops, and befriend animals such as ducks, monkeys, and badgers. Players will grow their farm, care for animals, mine, fish, and compete in festivals in their quest to restore the Sunshine Islands to their former glory. With a little luck, they may even find true love and start a family along the way.
