Developer and publisher Natsume has just announced a brand-new installment in the Harvest Moon franchise, Harvest Moon: The Winds of Anthos. This 25th-anniversary celebration title will release in the Summer of next year, but platforms have yet to be specified.
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.
“To celebrate the 25th anniversary of Harvest Moon, we are honored and excited to announce Harvest Moon: The Winds of Anthos. The upcoming Harvest Moon will take players to new lands and include features that are completely new to the series. We are eager to reveal more in the new year, since we still have so many big surprises planned for this remarkable anniversary.”, said Hiro Maekawa, President and CEO of Natsume Inc.
We will keep you updated as more details regarding the 25th-anniversary celebration, as well as more information about the game itself, are revealed.
