Harvest Moon: Connect to a New Land is off to a great start for Marvelous AQL. Media Create data reveals that the game sold 130,782 units in its first week in Japan, making it the biggest opening for a Harvest Moon title in recent years.

Harvest Moon: Connect to a New Land did better than its predecessor, Harvest Moon: A New Beginning, which sold 81,131 copies in its first week. Siliconera points out that Harvest Moon as well as Rune Factory have been growing since moving to 3DS.


Veterinary physician Nobuyuki Kanemaki from Azabu University consulted the ad above, created to promote the release of Harvest Moon: Connect to a New Land. Six Go-Pro cameras in total were used to pull off the full 360 degree view.

And we should probably point out this warning included just before the promo:
