Have you ever wondered how great it would be to have an online Harvest Moon where you could interact with your friends' farms and towns?... Well we don't seem to be at that point quite yet, but Marvelous is making some moves in that direction!
Marvelous recently announced a new online browser-based Harvest Moon game titled Minna De Bokujou Monogatari (rough translation - "Let's Harvest Moon"). The game is in beta testing right now in Japan, and there's no information on when it might be released.
It is a browser game, so that probably means instead of playing the game off of a CD, you would play it directly on your internet browser. From the little information that has been posted on the official website it seems to be very similar in nature to the popular facebook game, Farmville.
You basically take care of your online farm, harvesting crops and raising animals with the help of harvest sprites. However, there is no town, so you have to buy all of your seeds and animals from a shop window. You can assign your harvest sprites to do different tasks, and online friends can help you out with gifts or farmwork.
We'll keep you updated as we learn more about the game! :)Official Japanese websiteHM: Online page on HMOtaku -Become a fan on Facebook-
