We now have what seems to be final Japanese release date for Harvest Moon: Twin Villages! If you remember, last year Marvelous first announced that the game was coming out on February 25th of this year. Well in late January, they had to scratch that date along with a few other titles they had planned on releasing in early 2010. For the past few months it was unknown when the game would come out, but today Marvelous finally set a new official release date: July 8th, 2010
It's up to Natsume whether or not North America will see this game. Natsume has yet to even bring over Harvest Moon: Wind Bazaar (DS) though, so it would probably be a year or two before we hear anything about Twin Villages leaving Japan.
release date news: The release date for Hero of Leaf Valley got pushed back one week for technical reasons related to the UMDs (the PSP discs). According to Natsume:
"unfortunately the production of the UMDs is a little slower than expected. They will still be made and ready before the 20th, but shipping them from Sony to the individual retailers will push it a few days past the 20th. Retailers will have the title before the 27th, it just really depends on the retailer when they are available. Thus a blanket release of the 27th was suggested...that way all retailers who carry the product can release at the same time."
I've called a couple of local Gamestops just to check, and both confirmed that they'd start selling the games on the 27th. So make sure to mark next Tuesday on your calendar! Become a fan on Facebook!
