Further expanding the Wii's family-friendly image, developer and publisher Natsume announced today that Harvest Moon: Tree of Tranquility has shipped to retail.
Available for the standard price of $49.99, Harvest Moon: Tree of Tranquility continues Natsume's 10-year anniversary celebration with special commemorative packaging, retail promotions with collectible pre-order plush toys, strategy guides, a special 10th anniversary DS Lite Kit, and various other offers.
Harvest Moon fans will enjoy the new title as much as any newcomer to the franchise with another engrossing storyline, accompanied by a plethora of activities typical of Harvest Moon fashion -- cultivating crops, caring for animals, partaking in festivities, etc. This time, players must save an island after the mystical Mother Tree that once watched over the land disappears.
"We are proud to release Harvest Moon for the first time on the Nintendo Wii platform," said Hiro Maekawa, president and CEO of Natsume Inc. "With the new setting, characters, motion-sensitive controls, and the most refined gameplay yet, we're sure that both Harvest Moon fans and new players alike will be delighted with Harvest Moon: Tree of Tranquility."
