The Harvest Moon name has had a weird couple of years since the original developers’ games began getting localised outside of Natsume under the Story of Seasons banner. Thankfully, it looks like the next entry might be taking the series in an even more unique direction.

Harvest Moon: The Winds of Anthos will celebrate the 25th anniversary of the brand, bringing back the Harvest Sprites and Goddess. It’ll naturally put you in the shoes of a farmer once more, though this time you’ll visit five different villages that were separated by a volcanic eruption ten years prior, and it appears to be a much more open adventure.

Check out some early screenshots below:


Harvest Moon: The Winds of Anthos will release later this year, though platforms have yet to be confirmed.

Whether it’s an exciting new entry in a series long established or a weird experiment meant only for the dedicated, Tom is eager to report on it. Rest assured, if Nintendo ever announces Elite Beat Agents 2, he’ll be there.
