Harvest Moon: The Tale of Two Towns 3DS Launches on The 3DS eShop
Trouble Boils Over in a Rural Rivalry!
Years ago, a tunnel connected livestock-loving Bluebell village with
the crop-growing town of Konohana, but boisterous bickering between
the burgs created a cave-in and collapsed the tunnel! Build a bustling
farm, befriend the villagers, and maybe you can find a way to bring
these towns together once again
Choose from two different villages, each with their own shops,
villagers, and festivals!
Take on quests in each town and establish your reputation as the best
farmer on both sides of the mountain!
Grow crops, raise livestock, woo a spouse, and start a family!
