In Harvest Moon: The Winds of Anthos, players will explore a land known as Anthos, which is home to the Harvest Sprites, spirits that protect people and nature, as well as the goddess of nature known as the Harvest Goddess. About 20 years ago, an unprecedented eruption in Anthos’s volcanic region forced the Harvest Goddess and her Harvest Sprites to use all of their powers to protect the people.
The people were saved, but the eruption left the villages cut off from each other. Believing that the separated villages and people would one day be reconnected, the Harvest Goddess sent a bottle into the ocean with a letter and a magic key, then fell into a deep sleep. Players will be able to find and care for a variety of animals, including traditional farm animals like cows, chickens, sheep, and horses, but will also be able to befriend pets like parakeets, owls, and rabbits, as well as wolves and Bengal tigers! Players can also ride their horse (or other mounts) to travel around the region.
Furthermore, it is possible to grow a variety of crops such as corn, giant squash, and pineapples, as well as beautiful flowers including hibiscus and tulips to run a successful farm! Players will need to collect seeds from around the world with the help of the Harvest Wisps to grow both regular and rare crops. Harvest Moon: The Winds of Anthos is currently available on consoles.
