The new entry in the Harvest Moon
series, called Harvest Moon DS Cute
, is something of a mystery to us. Why is this
specific one cute, compared to all the other cute Harvest Moon
games? Do you grow teddy bear plants or something?
We think we've figured it out. What has happened is that two Harvest Moon
games have gotten mixed up-- a confusing situation that we will do our best to untangle.
We're guessing that the Harvest Moon DS Cute
we're getting early next year
is the female-focused version of the first Harvest Moon DS.
Like other girls' Harvest Moons
, it's the same as the original, with the genders swapped on the protagonist and the love interests. Thus, the 'cute' is a hint at its girl-targeted design. This is all speculative, of course.
The game we've seen recently in scans and in this new GAME Watch article is a sequel
to these Harvest Moons
, called (roughly) Harvest Moon: The Sparkling Sun and Friends.
It's a new game with Wi-Fi integration. We don't think this one is Cute,
mostly because it's too new
and unlikely to make that release window.
There are too many Harvest Moon
