Harvest Moon: Skytree Village

Natsume uploaded a new video today to show off some early gameplay from Harvest Moon: Skytree Village. Check out 10 minutes of footage below.

Natsume has announced that Harvest Moon: Skytree Village will launch in North America on November 8. In Europe, Rising Star Games will publish the 3DS title next spring.

Over on Amazon Canada, the official Harvest Moon: Skytree Village has been put up for us to see. You can see what the packaging image looks like above.


Today, Natsume shared the lineup of marriageable candidates in Harvest Moon: Skytree Village. Three characters are introduced: Dean, Cyril, and Gabriel.

Get the lowdown on each character straight from Natsume below. We also have a few screenshots and art in the gallery.

Dean is a big-hearted, strong young man with a love of flowers, which got him teased as a young child. Dean and his mother Carol came to the village to plant the mysterious seedling his late father left to them. Dean works in town as a florist, along with his mother.

“If you listen to flowers closely, they will tell you just what they need. Give them what they ask for, and they’ll blossom beautifully!” -Dean

Cyril is dashing aristocrat who comes from a famous family. He is serious, but a bit forgetful and gullible. However, he is an extremely straightforward and honest person, as is always trying to do the right thing.

“All I can offer is the earnest pledge of a gentleman to do my bit with a stiff upper lip and a tally-ho!” -Cyril

Gabriel is the oldest son of Sofia, the livestock keeper, and has a younger brother, Michael. He is a quite shy, and isn’t very good at talking to people, but his love of animals shines through in everything he does.

“I don’t express myself well… It takes me a long time to find the words.” -Gabriel

Natsume is introducing one of the new animals that will be included in Harvest Moon: Skytree Village. In the game, players will be able to raise the Poitou Donkey.

Here’s the official description:

“The Poitou Donkey is a new animal available to raise in Harvest Moon: Skytree Village! These aren’t pack animals – they’re shearing animals, like sheep! If you found someone who could tailor, they might make a new outfit for you…”

Harvest Moon: Skytree Village is slated for late 2016 in North America. Europe will have it in Q1 2016 thanks to Rising Star Games.


NIS America is teaming up with Natsume to release a limited edition for Harvest Moon: Skytree Village later this year. Those who purchase the package will receive a copy of the game, Collector’s Box, 44-page softcover art book in full color, original soundtrack with jewel case, six lapel pin set, and a blue feather rubber strap keychain.

Pre-orders are up on the NIS America store here. Pricing is set at $49.99.

Natsume has released the first official screenshots and art from Harvest Moon: Skytree Village. Additionally, a fact sheet has been distributed. We have all of that in the gallery below.

Later this year, Natsume will be bringing out Harvest Moon: Skytree Village. It’s the second game in the series following the split with Marvelous over the Bokujo Monogatari titles, which Natsume previously localized. Harvest Moon now refers to the games that Natsume makes internally.

Polygon spoke with Natsume vice president of operations Graham Markay about Skytree Valley at E3 last week and the franchise as a whole. He commented on how the series is constantly evolving, the divide with Story of Seasons, and more.

Head past the break for some of Markay’s responses. You can read Polygon’s full article here.
