Update: We now have the official announcement with actual details.

First, an overview:

Times have changed in the land known as the Oasis of the Harvest Goddess. Many people used to live in Skytree Village, and the land was lush and green. However, the power of the Harvest Goddess gradually began to wane, and the land became parched and dry.

It’s up to you revive the seven Skytrees in order to give the Harvest Goddess her power back, and, in turn, bring life back to this desolate land!

Natsume says that Harvest Moon: Skytree Village will include new characters, but with some returning faces. It’ll also offer a new art style, new character models, and more.

When it comes to features, the game will have new crops and flowers, new fishing mechanics, and the option to play as a boy or a girl. Natsume is also packing in “user-friendly tutorials” so that “players will immediately be able to jump into the thick of things, customizing their farm by raising and lowering the land, creating rivers, ponds, and more.” That’s in addition to upgraded tools to “assist farmers in shaping the land more efficiently”.

We’ve posted the official announcement after the break.

Harvest Moon: Skytree Village is in development for 3DS, Natsume announced today. The title will be playable at E3 2016 later this month.

Natsume just shared the news on Twitter with the following message:

We don’t have any additional details at the moment, but we’ll let you know if/when we hear anything else.
