Rune Factory 3 also offering freebies from GAME.
Rising Star Games has announced plans to work with leading video games retailer GAME to offer pre-order incentives for both Harvest Moon: Grand Bazaar and Rune Factory 3.
Pre-orders of these titles will be the only way to get hold of some of the bespoke character artwork Rising Star Games has commissioned.
Harvest Moon artist Higusa Matsuyama has created 30 pieces of bespoke character artwork, to be made available as art cards, three portraits and two premium pieces. The first set of cards is included with all copies of Harvest Moon: Grand Bazaar. GAME has secured exclusive use of the second and third sets of cards; set two will be available with pre-orders of Harvest Moon: Grand Bazaar and set three will be available with pre-orders of Rune Factory 3.
"We're delighted to be working with GAME on this incredibly exciting incentive," commented Martin Defries, managing director, Rising Star Games. "Fans of the Harvest Moon series will get their hands on brilliant artwork by official Harvest Moon artist Higusa Matsuyama. All purchases of Harvest Moon: Grand Bazaar will contain the first set of artwork but fans looking to complete the collection will need to go to GAME to get those exclusive second and third sets."
Harvest Moon: Grand Bazaar and Rune Factory 3 will be released later this year.
