Harvest Moon: The Winds Of Anthos Launches Summer 2023
Posted On December 14, 2022
A new Harvest Moon title, The Winds of Andros, will arrive in Summer 2023. Platforms have yet to be announced.
Details of the upcoming game are scant as of yet, but the press release says that the game celebrates Harvest Moon’s 25th Annversary by “[offering] new functions while keeping the core fundamentals that has made the series so popular.” In other words, you’ll still be farming, but you may do other stuff, too!
The release also includes some story particulars. The land of Anthos, Harvest Sprites protect people and nature, as well as serve the Harvest Goddess. 20 years before the game starts, the land’s volcanic region erupted. The goddess and her servants protected villages from the eruption, but the devastation left each town isolated from the other. Before she went to sleep, the Harvest Goddess placed a letter and magic key in a bottle and sent it across the ocean. Presumably, the player will pick up that bottle and reunite the fractured world, in part by farming and raising animals.
