Harvest Moon: Connect to a New Land trailer goes on safari

A trailer for Harvest Moon: Connect to a New Land shows off some of the game's new features as well as many returning elements from the long-running franchise.

As in prior Harvest Moon titles, the player is in charge of running a farm and must tend to crops as well as animals; the trailer shows the player character literally shoving cows and pigs to a doorway. Connect to a New Land adds different types of animals like alpacas, monkeys and penguins that can only be found by journeying to faraway places like the desert or frozen tundra.

The trailer also demonstrates the game's character creation and customization options, and introduces some of the NPCs that, presumably, the player will be able to romance in Harvest Moon tradition. Viewers who do not speak Japanese, however, will miss out on any character-specific information.

Harvest Moon: Connect to a New Land is coming to Nintendo 3DS with a February launch planned for Japan. There is no word yet on whether the game will come to the West, or when.
