Hero of Leaf Valley coming stateside this April.
Even with the relatively recent release of the UMD-less PSP Go, things have still been going rather slowly for Sony’s beleaguered handheld. However, for fans of the PlayStation Portable, it should come as some comfort to know that some beloved franchises are still churning out the titles. Among them, Natsume today announced that Harvest Moon: Hero of Leaf Valley will arrive in North America this April. With their small town on the verge of being bulldozed to make room for a theme park, players will take up their shovel and try to save it by doing what the Harvest Moon games do best: turning a run down piece of land into a profitable farm, growing a variety of crops and raising a veritable menagerie of animals. Of course, you won’t always be stuck in the field, and in Hero of Leaf Valley you’ll also be building your relationships with the locals and improving your skills in a number of different mini-games.
