New Screenshots Showcase Variety of Environments & Tasks As Players
Work To Save The Town From Destruction!

Burlingame, Calif., March 29, 2010 – Natsume, a worldwide developer and
publisher of family-oriented video games, announced today the release
of a new batch of screenshots that showcase the many environments and
tasks players will immerse themselves in when Harvest Moon: Hero of
Leaf Valley for the PlayStation® Portable launches next month.  The
game will retail at an MSRP of $29.99 and is rated E for Everyone by
the ESRB.
“These new screenshots demonstrate what players will encounter when
they work together with the villagers in order to save their small
town from demolition,” said Hiro Maekawa, President and CEO of
Natsume.  “We think this new Harvest Moon adventure will be the most
fulfilling ever for the PSP, especially given that players can choose
from multiple endings with the open-ended storyline.”

Leaf Valley is in trouble! The heartless Funland Corporation is going
to bulldoze the town and replace it with an amusement park unless its
citizens can find a way to stop them! Players will need to grow crops,
raise animals, and mine ores and gems to help save Leaf Valley and
their family farm. Along the way, they’ll earn money and develop their
skills in interactive part-time jobs, and build their relationships
with the villagers in order to gain their trust and help!
