next Harvest moon to go wifi like animal crossing?
Yasuhiro Wada at Marvelous Interactive recently spoke to the peeps over at Game Informer about the next Harvest Moon installment.
“Of course I am now making an online Harvest Moon. I cannot tell you which platform,” Wada stated.
While Wada made it clear that the series wouldn’t enter into the MMO space, this new online version of Harvest Moon will allow 2-8 players to visit your town. Regarding the handling of NPCs that players typically interact with on a regular basis, Wada said that if there’s 40 or so NPCs in your town they’re experimenting with having the same ones in everyone’s town. Could you potentially poach your friend’s wife? Scandalous!
People visiting peoples’ towns? Sounds familiar.
