Harvest Moon, the farming simulator that harvested its way into our hearts since the Super Nintendo days is due for a Fall 2011 sequel for the Nintendo DS and 3DS. I held the game in my hands on the E3 2011 show floor, earlier today and came away with some impressions.
The Tale of Two Towns features, like the name suggests, two distinct villages with their own cultures, customs, and rivalries. At the start of the game you select your gender and town affiliation. As this is a farming simulation, the town rivalry boils down to food preference. The European styled Bluebell favors animals, whereas the Eastern flavored Konahana is filled with fields of crops.
