Only shortly after the Japanese release date for Harvest Moon: A Wonderful Life was pushed
back, Ubi Soft has announced that it will be publishing both Harvest Moon: A Wonderful Life, as well as the new
Game Boy Advance title, Harvest Moon: Friends of Mineral Town, in all PAL territories. In
addition, both of the games are planned for a speedy release in October of 2003. However, there has been no mention
yet of a North American release date for either of the games at this time.
The upcoming GBA version of Harvest Moon will follow the same characters as Harvest Moon: Back to Nature and will take place
once again in the ever popular Mineral Town. Harvest Moon: A Wonderful Life, on the other hand, will feature over 40
new characters as well as improvements to the vegetable production and animal raising mechanics. However, the two games will
also be linkable so that characters and villagers from either game may visit the other.
Currently, no pricing details for Harvest Moon: A Wonderful Life or Harvest Moon: Friends of Mineral Town have been released.
