Natsume has updated Harvest Moon: The Lost Valley with a new patch. Version 1.1 is out now for all North American owners.

Here’s a breakdown of the patch straight from Natsume:

Thanks to all the fans who provided feedback for The Lost Valley to make it even better: a new patch has arrived for #HarvestMoon: The Lost Valley! Your North American copy of the game should automatically prompt you to download Version 1.1, which includes:

Improved Harvest Sprites~ Earn friendship faster, and watch them do way more work!
Improved Watering Can: 50 wasn’t enough, so now it holds 200!
Change in dog’s behavior: Some of Fido’s naughty habits have been minimized!
Minor tweaks to code that should improve gameplay!

There hasn’t been any news about the patch being available in Europe, but we’ll let you know if we hear otherwise.


Harvest Moon: The Lost Valley launches in Europe today, and with that comes a slew of new 3DS themes! Check all of them out in the video below:

Natsume’s latest “State of the Farm” post shares updates on the company’s upcoming plans.

First, new DLC is on the way to Harvest Moon: The Lost Valley. This will include a new bachelor/bachelorette and more.

Natsume’s upcoming GBA games for the Wii U Virtual Console are also still in the pipeline. The first two will be announced “very soon”, and they should release in early June and early July. Six other GBA VC titles are in the works.

Last but not least, Natsume left a tease for its presence at E3 2015. There’s good things to come for both Wii U and 3DS owners, as news will be shared for both of these platforms.

Head past the break for the full breakdown of what lies ahead for Natsume.

Nintendo of Europe has just confirmed that Harvest Moon: The Lost Valley will arrive on European shores June 19 for 3DS.


Update: We’ve now received the official announcements. The new Crop/Recipe and Flower packs will be free until May 19th and .99 cents thereafter. Natsume is also teasing “a big DLC pack coming in mid-June, including new characters and outfits”.

Here’s an overview of today’s DLC:

With the new DLC available, players will enjoy new crops that have been added to Sam’s Shop, and can also learn new recipes from Hanna. New kinds of flowers will be available in Iris’ shop. But that’s not all! Love is in the valley air, and players can look forward to a romantic summer with some extra surprises coming later in June!

Tons of DLC screenshots are below.

A couple of new Harvest Moon: The Lost Valley DLC sets are now available.

The first download is comprised of new crops and recipe DLC. This normally costs $0.99, but can be obtained for free until May 19. Natsume also released new flowers DLC which appears to be permanently free.

Natsume spread today’s Harvest Moon: The Lost Valley DLC news on Twitter with the following messages:


Harvest Moon: The Lost Valley’s first wave of downloadable content is out now, and it’s free. The DLC can be obtained right from the game without any hassle.

Natsume has added new outfits and hairstyles with today’s DLC. There are three outfits for the female and male protagonists, including a new Dairy Farmer getup for each. Content can be accessed from a player’s dresser.

In the future, Natsume is planning on adding new items to customize the Lost Valley itself, along with new crops, recipes, and more. The company also teased in its announcement today: “There’s even some whispers that new love is in the air, but whether these rumors are true remain to be seen!”

Natsume president and CEO Hiro Maekawa posted a New Year’s message to the company’s Facebook page earlier today.

In it, there’s a mention that “Harvest Moon: The Lost Valley is performing beyond our expectations in North America”. A European launch is taking place this year.

Here’s the full message from Maekawa:


Natsume’s latest “State of the Farm” post on Tumblr provides updates on two 3DS titles.

Harvest Moon: The Lost Valley, which launched last month, will soon be receiving new content. Natsume hopes to begin releasing DLC in January “and every month after that until April.” The company says there will be “a nice variety” of new content.

Natsume also shared the following status report on A-Train: City Simulator:

Currently we are at the tail end of the translation and localization for A-Train and we are truly excited about this title. In January we’ll begin testing, tweaking, and polishing. With a mix of city simulation strategy and trains, we can’t wait for our fans to play this unique title. Expect to see your first glimpse of the game in January.


Natsume’s latest farming outing apparently won’t eat up too much of your 3DS’s memory, as today it was announced that Harvest Moon: The Lost Valley will only take up 635 blocks or around 80MB of system space. The game is due out today in North America and in 2015 in Europe.
