Harvest Moon: Skytree Village - upcoming DLC packs details

Pack 1 (Jan. 24th): new marriage candidate (Edmond), and a statue of the Harvest Goddess [Price: $2.99]

Edmond, a grand mage, who trained both Gareth and Tabitha, and whose knowledge of the world far exceeds either of them. Despite this, he is rather calm and introspective in comparison to the slightly arrogant Gareth and boisterous Tabitha. He has returned to the land of the Harvest Goddess after some time, but what brought him back? Is there some sort of deeper secret he hides within?

Pack 2 (Jan. 24th): new marriage candidate (Nova), and a statue of the Doc [Price: $2.99]

Her father is a human from the surface world, while her mother is of the tribe of Gorgan from the Underworld Kingdom. Since she was raised in the dark and damp underground mines of the Underworld, the surface world is still a bit strange and confusing to her. Help her learn the ways of the surface dwellers!

Pack 3 (Feb. 14th): includes the Harvest Sprite Statue and Harvest Goddess’ Pergola (with the latter available in several colours). Those two new building will added to your Insta-Building lists once download.

Harvest Moon creator doesn't feel the need to be involved in the series anymore

Coming from a GameSpot interview with Harvest Moon creator, Yasuhiro Wada...

GS: Do you ever find yourself still yearning to make another Harvest Moon or farming game? After making so many, do you still have ideas for the genre that you're excited to get out there?

YW: Not. At. All. [Laughs]

I see Harvest Moon more as my child now; it's all grown up. It's married, it started a family, and it's doing its own thing now. I'm curious as to how it's going to do from here on out, but I don't feel the need to get involved with the series anymore.
