Heyy people. Sorry for the obvious random disappearance of updates. Hopefully they'll happen a little more frequently for at least a little while (minus next week probably because I will not have access to a computer).
First, last week Cher from UNoT
informed us that her issue of Marvelous Entertainment DREAM magazine specifies
• a Rune Factory 3
80% complete (no console announced yet)
• another DS HM
• and a Harvest Moon Online!
in the works! only in Japan, though, right now. :(
Anyway, we missed a lot of stuff!---most important of which would be E3! So for any of you who didn't see, this was Natsume's E3 lineup
• HM: Animal Parade
(Wii) - September 2009
For the last half a year or so, this was known as "Exciting Animal March." As you can see, it's supposed to be a sequel to ToT.
• HM: Sunshine Islands
(DS) - August 2009
This was known as "Sparkling Sun and Friends," and many of you will be happy because for the longest time we thought this was not going to come out in English!
• HM: Frantic Farming
(DS) - July 2009
You've seen a couple updates about this. It's the sequel to Puzzle de HM, a new and improved version.
• HM: My Little Shop
(WiiWare) - Q3 2009
You've seen a couple updates about this too. We don't have a section up for it yet.
• HM: Sugartown
(PSP) - Q4 2009
And you've seen a LOT of updates about this one! It was known as "Sugar Village & Everyone's Wish." (As you can see, they shortened the name, lols.) It's almost like an improved port of the old PS2 HM, Save the Homeland.
They have other non-HM games in their lineup, too. You can see their full brochure here
As you can see, the official English names have pretty much come out. I would update our own sections accordingly, but I am currently locked out of our server, so I guess it's not happening. :(
Other than that, I'll just skim through the more important things from the past couple months:MLS Video
. Promotional footage for My Little Shop, the WiiWare game. :)Screenshots
. IGN has posted screenshots from Frantic Farming
and Animal Paradise
.Nintendo Power Reviews
. Frantic Farming received an 8/10
And last but not least, Marvelous is crying. :( A staff blog post
(most likely Yasuhiro Wada) states "I truly have teary eyes. I feel like crying."
Apparently sales for their Wii titles are low in spite of their efforts to do their best under time constraints and limited budget. They also mentioned feeling the sting of our world's recent economic downturn in specifically Europe. Yes, I swear this is also important. Game producers are human beings too.
