This past week, Harvest Moon got a dose of online multiplayer in Japan. Marvelous Entertainment, creators of the farming sim series, launched a free-to-play MMO dubbed Harvest Moon With Everyone. Players will be responsible for building their own farms, and gain experience for completing tasks to that end, but can also visit other farms to help out with chores and such.
As is common for the model, the base game carries no charge, but players can spend money to buy premium items. Presently the game is only in Japanese, and no plans have been announced to translate the game for English players.
