New Harvest Moon announced for 3DS

First Earth to take seed in 2012.

A new entry in Marvelous Entertainment's long-running farm sim Harvest Moon is heading to the 3DS next year, the publisher has announced.

Titled Harvest Moon: Hajimari no Daichi, which Andriasang claims translates roughly as First Earth, it's due on Japanese shelves in early 2012.

Customisation seems to be the focus this time around, with players able to deck out their own farm and tweak away at their avatar to their heart's content. Sounds groundbreaking.

It won't be the first Harvest Moon game to grace Nintendo's new handheld. Harvest Moon: The Tale of Two Towns launches in the US next week, with an as-yet-unscheduled European launch to follow.
