Harvest Moon The Tale Of Two Towns for the 3DS is a bit different from the Nintendo DS version. This game is a simulation game, players start as farmers, but also act as a medium for the 2 neighboring towns. This is where the storyline comes into play. When players first start the game, players can choose whether or not they want to live in a rancher town that deals with animals or if they want to live in a harvesting town where they deal with a lot of farming. Players can also choose whether or not they want to be a girl or boy.
The storyline of Harvest Moon The Tale Of Two Towns involves 2 towns, Konohana and Bluebell that are fighting with each other due to previous majors that had an on going feud about who has the best cuisine. The 2 towns used to be joined together by an underground mountain tunnel, but as the fighting grew, the Goddess became more upset and destroyed the tunnel to cut off communication between them both. The only time the towns now come together is for the cooking festival, but they tend to manage to even fight there. As the main character in this game, players are set out to reunite the towns back to peace and harmony again. Players can choose between the 2 towns when it comes to a place to live. If you are more interested with animals then Bluebell is the best fit for you because it is a rancher town with a European style of life and Konohana is more of a farming town with a more Japanese style of living. Each town is unique in that they look completely different and the way the people act are completely different.
Harvest Moon offers features that are new to the game's whole series. These changes include the way you romance other characters, the way your friendship is displayed to you (from hearts to flowers), new ways of transportation between towns (flying on an owl), brand new characters but some of your old favorites are still there, festivals take place more often, newer crops are available for planting, and you can now plant and sell your crops to your friends over wifi. These changes offer a totally different experience from the game's usual experience. However, there are many things that are the same in Harvest Moon The Tale Of Two Towns. For instance, the way you take care of your crops and animals have not changed, the stamina bar is still in place, some of the old favorite characters are in the towns, the way you make friends and the way you court someone and marry them are the same as in previous versions of the game.
Harvest Moon The Tale Of Two Towns is a game that both newcomers and veterans alike can enjoy. If playing simulation games where you continuously have missions with ever changing stories, then give this game a shot.
