Harvest Moon: The Lost Valley Announced
Publisher Natsume has revealed its latest title Harvest Moon: The Lost Valley for Nintendo 3DS. It said that the game would be shown at E3 2014.
This new title will be the first in a series of games which are based on farming. It said that the game would have a 3D setting with a customizable world.
"Harvest Moon: The Lost Valley is truly evolving the franchise. Hardcore fans will love it, players who haven't played a Harvest Moon game in a while will want to try it out, and new players will be introduced to the unique and charming world that is Harvest Moon," said Hiro Maekawa, president and CEO, Natsume.
Costume Quest 2 Announced for Wii U
Developer Double Fine has announced that it would release Costume Quest 2, an RPG on PC, Wii U, PlayStation 3, PlayStation 4, Xbox 360 and Xbox One.
It was announced that there would be changes in timing-based attacks of the game as it has been made more beneficial. It was also revealed that collectible cards would have limited use, though it can be used to upgrade abilities. The game will introduce newer costumes like Clown, Superhero and Pterodactyl.
"It's probably our most requested sequel, besides Psychonauts. People have been asking for it forever. I think it's that every Halloween you're reminded about the game. We have a lot of people who are coming back to us saying they replay it every year," said Greg Rice, publishing manager, Double Fine.
