Wii? Check. PSP? Check. DS? Double check. So which system are the Harvest Moon teams targetting next? ...Why not Wiiware!
Marvelous/Famitsu has announced that "Bokujou Monogatari: Makiba no Omise" will be the first HM game to find its way into Wii's growing selection of Wiiware games. "Makiba no Omise" actually translates roughly into "Ranch Store". So as you might guess, the game will center mostly around running your very own shop! It looks like you'll be able to pick what kind of business you'd like to run (ice cream, fruits & veggies, or even easter eggs), decorate your store, and send picutres of it to your friends. Most of the tasks in the game though will be in the form of mini-games. And don't be surprised if you see your favorite HM characters dropping by to shop around.
The game is set to release in Japan April 28th. Players will be able to purchase the game through the Wii Shop channel for 1500 points. Hopefully everyone else around the world can get in on this new HM action as soon as possible. Until then, like always, we'll keep you guys updated as we hear more about the game! -Link to the official Japanese site here-"
