Natsume has finally nailed down a release date for the oft delayed Nintendo 3DS version of Harvest Moon: The Tale of Two Towns. Despite being delayed a few times now, Natsume has annouced that the next time we can expect the title to be released is on November 1st. This means that the 3DS version will be released a month and a half after the release of the DS version on September 20th. Pre-orders will soon be available, though the title can be pre-ordered nearly anywhere that games are sold.
This will mark the first release of a Harvest Moon title on the 3D handheld, though Marvelous AQL has announced that they are developing Harvest Moon: The Land of Origin exclusively for the 3DS instead of as a port. Currently this title is only slated for release in Japan however, and Natsume has made no announcement whether or not they would be localizing this title as well.
