Natsume has announced that Harvest Moon: The Tale of Two Towns is coming to Nintendo DS and 3DS.

The games will be released simultaneously in the US, but no UK release has been announced.

"We're extremely excited to be bringing The Tale of Two Towns to these two great platforms," said Hiro Maekawa, president and CEO at Natsume. "We wanted to ensure that all of our loyal Harvest Moon fans would have a chance to play this game. No matter which version they pick up, they're sure to love the great new cast of characters, the fun festivals, and the exciting new gameplay mechanics."

A dispute over food has turned the once peaceful neighbours of Konohana and Bluebell villages into bitter rivals. Players will choose which village to live in, then farm crops or animals, compete in festivals and develop their skills.
