Harvest Moon: Friends of Mineral Town landed on the North American Wii U Virtual Console last week. Below, we’ve attached some extensive footage from the classic GBA title.

Harvest Moon: Friends of Mineral Town is launching on the North American Wii U Virtual Console tomorrow, according to Nintendo’s website.

Earlier in the week, the game was rated by the ESRB. It was a strong sign that the classic game would soon be getting a re-release on the eShop.

You’ll be able to purchase Harvest Moon: Friends of Mineral Town for $6.99. A brief game overview can be found below.

The ESRB rating for Harvest Moon: Friends of Mineral Town has been updated with an additional platform.
Unsurprisingly, that system is Wii U.

Natsume has a whole bunch of GBA games lined up for the Wii U Virtual Console, and Harvest Moon: Friends of Mineral Town should be one of them. I wouldn’t be at all surprised if this was one of the Virtual Console titles in North America this week.
