Harvest Moon: Save the Homeland and Harvest Moon: A Wonderful Life were both PlayStation 2 games that had their share of issues. Although they were charming and fun, they were plagued by slowdowns and other errors. The ESRB has recently rated both of these titles for PlayStation 4 though, so they may be getting the second chance at life they deserve.
The “Harvest Moon: Save the Homeland” was released in Japan in 2001 as Bokujō Monogatari 3: Heart ni Hi o Tsukete, and a part of the famous “Story of Seasons” series while “Harvest Moon: A Wonderful Life” was released in 2004.
The gamer plays the role of 21-year-old man, who inherited his late grandfather’s farm. The player will come across “Harvest Sprites” and the Harvest Goddess when he arrives in the farm to pick his late grandfather’s belongings. These ‘creatures’ will request him to stay on the farm and assist them.
The place is going to be demolished in a year to convert the area into a resort and amusement park. The game aims to find a way to save the area before it gets devastated.
“Harvest Moon: A Wonderful Life”, on the other hand, was released in Japan as Bokujo Monogatari: Wandafuru Raifu, literally Ranch Story: Wonderful Life. It is Harvest Moon series original title for the Nintendo GameCube.
The title presents new characters and bachelorettes, including the whole new neighborhood. It is an exclusive Harvest Moon game in the series to date where people noticeably age, child grows, and main players could pass away. The game suggests integration with the Game Boy Advance game “Harvest Moon: Friends of Mineral Town”.
While there is no official announcement for them, we can expect them to release soon as the same happened with Destroy All Humans! which was rated for the PS4 by ESRB and then later made available for purchase on PSN.
