Burlingame, Calif., May 6, 2010 - Natsume, a worldwide developer and publisher of family-oriented video games, announced today that Harvest Moon: Grand Bazaar will be released for the Nintendo DST this July. The game will retail at an MSRP of $29.99 and is rated E for Everyone by the ESRB.
"Harvest Moon: Grand Bazaar is another great entry in the Harvest Moon series. It has a fun story and a great new cast of colorful characters," said Hiro Maekawa, President and CEO of Natsume. "It's loaded with exciting new features like the ability to run your own shop and a multiplayer mode in which you can invite other friends to your farm!"
Zephyr Town's bazaar was once the grandest in the world, drawing customers and peddlers from all four corners of the Earth. These days, though, the bazaar has more tumbleweeds than customers. It's up to the player to turn its fortunes around! They'll raise animals, harvest crops, craft rare delicacies, and then sell their wares at their very own shop. If players can bring prosperity back to Zephyr town, its bazaar will thrive once again, packed with exotic wares that they can purchase to expand their farm!
As a bonus, players who pre-order the game at GameStop will receive a limited edition plush horse. Quantities are limited, so hurry and place your order before they're gone!
Harvest Moon: Grand Bazaar will make its first public appearance at next month's E3 trade show.
