Thanks to a preview from Polygon, we now have more details about Harvest Moon: The Lost Valley. There are also quotes from Natsume’s Graham Markay as well as president CEO Yasuhiro “Hiro” Maekawa, who even touched on topics such as how the Harvest Moon series almost didn’t come west.

Check out our summary of Polygon’s report below. You can also read the site’s full preview here.

Like previous entries in the series, Harvest Moon: The Lost Valley won’t offer same-sex marriages. However, Natsume has suggested that this is something that could be included in future titles.

Joystiq spoke with a couple of folks at Natsume and was told the following:

“It’s obviously something that we’re going to look into as we continue the Harvest Moon series. We’re going to look into all aspects of it.” – Graham Markay, Vice President of Operations

“We always listen very carefully to fans’ voices. Fan voices, media voices. We know what the fans are looking for. We are always carefully listening to fans’ voices.” – Hiro Maekawa, President and CEO of Natsume


Natsume has confirmed a pair of new titles for the 3DS Virtual Console. Lufia: The Legend Returns and Harvest Moon 2 GBC will both be making their way to the eShop sometime in the future.

Natsume shared the news on Twitter just a little while ago:

Natsume’s Graham Markay confirmed to Siliconera that DLC is planned for Harvest Moon: The Lost Valley. The plan is to bring out both free and paid DLC. Through the extra content, the game will extend beyond the story or when players get married.


Natsume has revealed its final two Nintendo-related announcements for E3 2014. The publisher will be localizing A-Train: City Simulator for 3DS as well as Alphadia Genesis for Wii U.

Here’s an overview of both games:

Combining the best of both city simulation games and transportation simulation games, A-Train: City Simulator for 3DS is sure to be a hit with fans of both genres! As the newly promoted head of the local transportation agency, it’s your job to make sure that both the city and its transportation system run smoothly! From buses, trains, and subways, you’ll have to think about the best way to incorporate these into the city while avoiding possible bottlenecks and frustrated citizens!

Natsume is also pleased to reveal their first Wii U game, Alphadia Genesis! Boasting a rich, complex story starring Fray, a member of the local guild, and Corone, a knight. As their journey progresses and conflicting national interests come to the forefront, it becomes apparent that it may take more than a little work on both their parts if their relationship is to weather the foreboding storm on the horizon.

A-Train: City Simulator and Alphadia Genesis, along with Harvest Moon: The Lost Valley, will be showcased at E3 2014.

Natsume has now officially confirmed Harvest Moon: The Lost Valley for Europe via a message published on Twitter.

The company said:

We don’t know the specifics as to how the European release will be handled, but at least it’s been officially confirmed!


Harvest Moon: The Lost Valley has been in development for quite awhile. Graham Markay, vice-president of operations, told Siliconera that the company’s new office in Tokyo has been working on the game since early 2013.

Markay also confirmed that Yasuhiro Wada is not involved with The Lost Valley’s development. Wada is the creator of Harvest Moon, and worked with Natsume on Hometown Story.


Natsume will be announcing a total of three Nintendo titles by the end of E3 2014. One of these games, as we found out today, is Harvest Moon: The Lost Valley.

The Lost Valley is a 3DS title, but Natsume has something in store for Wii U as well. The publisher teased a “treat” for Nintendo’s console – which we know will be revealed in just a few days.
