Natsume has released information on a brand new entry in the Harvest Moon series, titled "Harvest Moon: Sunshine Islands", to be sold within the next few months. The twist to this entry in the long-running franchise is the new goal: you are trying to restore the sunshine islands through harvesting. The game first came out in Japan back in February of last year. An appearance at E3 is likely.
New Harvest Moon game announced for DS
For those who don't know in harvest moon crops traditionally take a set number of days of watering to grow however in Island of Happiness the weather has an extreme influence on crops, cloudy weather would slow it down, sunny weather would speed it up but could burn the plants if you give them to much water and since the weather can not be manipulated you never know when your crops will be fully grown and ready for harvest which is extremely annoying if you are "power farming" the game scheduling purchases ahead of time.

Ugh... how come these games continue to sell? I got burnt out on HM long ago. The original for the SNES and Friends of Mineral Town for GBA (which is really just a 2D remake of Back to Nature/HM64 but better because it doesn't have that crappy isometric camera angle) are all you really need IMO.
Well, except for maybe the Rune Factory series... I haven't gotten into those yet and have been wanting to.

I don't now. There's a big "Buy Little King's Story" campaign going on over in the gamespot forums, for example. ... [more]
The first Anno game on the DS sold 30 000 copies in Europe. That's not outstanding, but it's solid for such a title. It seems to have been enough to warrant a DS/Wii sequel. One that must've been expensive, from the looks and sounds of it.
No, I don't worry too much about Little King's Story. And not about Harvest Moon, for that matter. But Dawn of Discovery (Wii) must be advertised more. This title flopping would be unnecessary indeed.
