Newest Harvest Moon to be Published by Xseed Games

It seems publishers of Japanese games have been shuffling their properties around quite a lot recently. The latest game to see a jump between publishers is Harvest Moon: Connect to a New Land for 3DS. Natsume has long since been in control of the franchise in North America but now Xseed Games is getting in on the farming action.

Xseed is set to publish the game later this year but will have to do so under a new name. This is because Natsume has the rights to the series name “Harvest Moon”. Instead, Xseed has named the new game Story of Seasons, although it is still very much a “Harvest Moon” title.
