Are you ready to embark on a new adventure? Natsume Inc. has announced the upcoming release of Harvest Moon: The Winds of Anthos, the latest installment in the beloved Harvest Moon franchise. The game will be available on Nintendo Switch, Sony PlayStation 5, Sony PlayStation 4, Microsoft Xbox Series X, Microsoft Xbox One, and PC (Steam) later this year, and it promises to be a thrilling and heartwarming experience for fans of the series and newcomers alike.
Discover the World of Anthos
Harvest Moon: The Winds of Anthos takes place in a world known as Anthos, home to the Harvest Sprites and the goddess of nature, the Harvest Goddess. The land was once thriving until an unprecedented eruption occurred in the volcanic region, which forced the Harvest Goddess and her Sprites to use their powers to protect the people. As a result, the villages became isolated from each other.
Believing that one day, the villages and people would be reconnected, the Harvest Goddess sent a bottle into the ocean with a letter and a magic key, then fell into a deep sleep. That day has finally come, and it’s up to you to explore Anthos, meet its inhabitants, and uncover its secrets.
Farming, Animals, and More
As a farmer, your main objective is to grow a variety of crops, including corn, giant squash, pineapples, hibiscus, and tulips, to run a successful farm. You’ll also need to care for a range of animals, including cows, sheep, chickens, and horses, as well as pets like cats, dogs, parakeets, wolves, and Bengal tigers.
One of the exciting features of Harvest Moon: The Winds of Anthos is the ability to ride your horse (or other mounts) to travel around Anthos. You’ll also need to collect seeds from around the world with the help of the Harvest Wisps to grow both regular and rare crops.
Meet the Inhabitants of Providence Village
Providence Village is the starting point of your adventure, and it’s where you’ll meet a variety of interesting characters. Westley helps lead Providence Village alongside his adventurous younger sister, Vivi. Many of the people who were caught outside of their own villages during the eruption ended up seeking refuge in Providence Village, so it’s become something of a multicultural hub since then.
“We are very excited to show players more of the expansive world of Anthos, starting with Providence Village!” said Hiro Maekawa, President and CEO of Natsume. “We’re sure our fans are looking forward to exploring every inch of it as we continue to reveal the people, animals, and crops in this new world!”
Five Unique Towns to Explore
Harvest Moon: The Winds of Anthos features five unique towns with their own seasons, terrain, and villagers. You’ll explore the world of Anthos while searching for Harvest Wisps, wild animals, mines, and more.
You can also woo five different bachelors and five different bachelorettes and marry whoever your heart desires. Doc Jr. is back with a new and improved Expando-Farm that lets you easily move your farm around the land of Anthos. And finally, you can cook multiple dishes in your kitchen at the same time!
