Natsume announced today that Harvest Moon: Grand Bazaar will be released for
the Nintendo DS this July. The game will retail at an MSRP of $29.99 and is
rated E for Everyone by the ESRB.
"Harvest Moon: Grand Bazaar is another great entry in the Harvest Moon
series. It has a fun story and a great new cast of colorful characters," said
Hiro Maekawa, President and CEO of Natsume. "It’s loaded with exciting new
features like the ability to run your own shop and a multiplayer mode in which
you can invite other friends to your farm!"
Zephyr Town’s bazaar was once the grandest in the world, drawing customers
and peddlers from all four corners of the Earth. These days, though, the bazaar
has more tumbleweeds than customers. It’s up to the player to turn its fortunes
around! They’ll raise animals, harvest crops, craft rare delicacies, and then
sell their wares at their very own shop. If players can bring prosperity back to
Zephyr town, its bazaar will thrive once again, packed with exotic wares that
they can purchase to expand their farm!
As a bonus, players who pre-order the game at GameStop will receive a limited
edition plush horse. Quantities are limited, so hurry and place your order
before they’re gone!
Harvest Moon: Grand Bazaar will make its first public appearance at next
month’s E3 trade show.
