Since the split between Marvelous and Natsume concerning the Bokujō Monogatari farming sim series, Natsume has taken the Harvest Moon name and grown their own farming games. Starting with Harvest Moon: The Lost Valley in 2014, all Harvest Moon games that have been produced by Natsume have all used the same art style and direction. That changes this year as we have our first look at the box art for Harvest Moon: One World.

Today, Natsume announced more details about the game. The big and welcomed change is that Harvest Moon: One World is embracing a new art style.

Joining the box art is information about the game’s plot, which was also available on Nintendo UK’s site:

 

“Fledgling farmers will explore an entire world full of new and familiar faces, unique villages, and adventurous challenges while managing their growing farm. The new title is being developed with an all-new engine and graphics.

Can you imagine a world without tomatoes, strawberries, or even cabbage? That’s the situation players will find themselves in in the latest entry in the Harvest Moon series. Only an old book gives hints of what once was… Buoyed by a mysterious discovery, however, players will find themselves setting out on an adventure that spans not only their hometown but the whole world! What kind of people and places await? From the gorgeous beaches of Halo Halo to the snowy mountains of Salmiakki, there’s literally an entire world to explore!”

 
Harvest Moon: One World will be available this fall in North and South American markets.
