3DS game Harvest Moon: A New Beginning confirmed for Europe

Out this year.

Nintendo 3DS game Harvest Moon: A New Beginning launches in Europe during the third quarter of 2013.

So, that's at some point between July, August and September.

It'll arrive on these shores courtesy of publisher Marvelous AQL Europe and distributor Zen United. It was released in Japan in February 2012 and in the US in October 2012.

A New Beginning is the first in the cute farming sim role-playing series to be designed from the ground up for the 3DS. New features include being able to fully customise your character, farm and the town in which the game is set.
