Natsume䀙s whimsical farming series moves to dual-screened pastures with the release of Harvest Moon DS. The storyline finds the serene vistas of Forget-Me-Not-Valley in danger after a witch princess cruelly scatters the land䀙s harvest sprites. Before all 101 helpful sprites can be found, however, players must grab a hoe, watering can, or another tool to plant fields, harvest crops, and raise livestock. Farmers can also woo the opposite sex and get married.
The familiar overhead perspective returns as players explore their farm and its surrounding areas from the top screen. The bottom screen displays statistics, conversations, maps, close-up views of animals, and more. The DS version also introduces a number of new festivals, items, and mini-games. As an added bonus, owners of either Harvest Moon title on Game Boy Advance will be able to unlock special features upon inserting each cartridge. ~ Scott Alan Marriott, All Game Guide
