Rising Star Games announce Harvest Moon: Grand Bazaar

Rising Star Games have today revealed the latest instalment within the popular Harvest Moon series, Harvest Moon: Grand Bazaar, which is due to be released across PAL regions this year for Nintendo DS.

The Harvest Moon story continues in Zephyr Town where there was once a world famous bazaar and shoppers from distant lands would gather to purchase goods. Unfortunately, the bazaar has now fallen into despair and very few visitors come to the weekly gathering. You have recently moved to Zephyr Town to take over the run-down farm on the outskirts of town and hopefully, with your hard work, the town’s bazaar will be revitalised and become great once again!

The game is set to feature an all-new bazaar system alongside improved farming and relationship mechanics. Windmills will allow you to combine ingredients to make goods to sell at the Bazaar, a new jump movement lets you jump up hills and over streams, multiple pets can be owned to work on your farm and the horse festival also returns.

You’ll find ten new characters and brand new crops, with players able to connect with friends over the Nintendo Wi-Fi Connection: shopping at their bazaar, helping their farming or go fishing in their streams.

“Harvest Moon is Rising Star Games’ flagship brand – we have successfully released more than a dozen Harvest Moon titles,” says Martin Defries, Managing Director of Rising Star Games. “With a legacy spanning over twenty years, this is the series that started the farming genre. We will continue the success of this great series with the release of Harvest Moon: Grand Bazaar for the Nintendo DS in 2011.”
