Natsume Sows Harvest Moon: Seeds Of Memories On Wii U, PC, Smartphone This Year

Natsume has announced its next Harvest Moon title will be going back to the series' roots. The company says the upcoming Seeds of Memories is inspired by the original entry in the series on Super Nintendo.

The new title, which will be out this winter, will task players with bringing a decrepit farm back to life. The Seeds of Memory appellation refers to collectibles in the game that are earned by making friends with villagers and accomplishing tasks in the game.

You'll be able to raise livestock, care for pets (including the new bobcat), and get married to one of ten suitors. Natsume is planning to release the game on Wii U, PC, iOS, and Android.


Our Take
Natsume hasn't yet explained if the smartphone versions are going to be exact ports or different experiences. For Nintendo's sake, I hope that they are different enough that this gives the Wii U another solid console exclusive for this year. That library needs some bolstering.
