The Harvest Moon: Twin Villages website has updated a few more things since we last postedOwl
- A new pet owl has been added to the game! It seems like if you go to the edge of the village and call the owl, it can be used to fly you to and from the mountains. Just make sure to hold on tight! You can see screen-shots of the owl as well as new farming and bee-keeping features hereNew Characters
- A new bachelor, Kiriku, and a new bachelorette, Nana, have been added. Nana is a nice and tolerant person, and Kiriku loves to exercise. See them both here Box art & Pre-order Bonus
- The official box art for Twin Villages was released recently and can be seen above (click for larger image). The game is set to release in Japan on February 25th. And if you pre-order it, in Japan only obviously, you get some sort of strap alpaca keychain as a bonus. Hopefully if/when it's released in North America and Europe, we'll also be lucky enough to get a pre-order bonus. Plush alpacas anyone?
Also, IGN just reviewed Animal Parade. Check it out here
Overall, they weren't fond of the graphics or sound, but liked the gameplay and gave it a solid 7.5 out of 10. They say the HM veterans will feel right at home with the freedom of the gameplay and can expect another quality harvest moon title. And for those that are new to Harvest Moon games or have never played one, this would be a great game to start with!
