Natsume announced today that Harvest
Moon: Animal Parade for the Nintendo Wii has gone gold. Harvest Moon: Animal
Parade will be released on November 10th at an MSRP of $49.99 and is rated E for
Everyone by the ESRB.
"Harvest Moon: Animal Parade
continues the Harvest Moon series with imaginative new characters, a huge
variety of fun pets, and exciting new challenges, " said Hiro Maekawa, President
and CEO of Natsume. "Players looking for a deep and rich Wii title this season
should add Harvest Moon: Animal Parade to their holiday wish lists!"
There’s trouble in the
once-prosperous village of Harmonica Town! Crops aren’t growing, the wind isn’t
blowing, and the five elemental bells are missing. Only the power of the Harvest
King can revive the land, but he’s nowhere to be found. It’s up to the player to
find the five bells, awaken the Harvest King, and save the town!
Players will find plenty of exciting
activities in Harvest Moon: Animal Parade, including fishing, mining,
cultivating crops, and caring for wild and exotic animals such as penguins,
pandas, and monkeys. Players can take their exotic animals out for walks, teach
them tricks, and even ride them around town! When the circus rolls into town,
players will also need to help the ringmaster find the escaped animals. Befriend
the lion, giraffe, and hippopotamus, or the show is doomed!
As a bonus, players who pre-order
the game at GameStop will receive a limited edition plush duck. Quantities are
limited, so hurry and place your order before they’re gone!
