Longtime fans of Harvest Moon aren’t really going to be that excited about the most recent release in the franchise, Harvest Moon: Lil’ Farmers. The thing is, they’re not really supposed to. It’s not meant for them. It’s meant for, as the title suggests, younger players. My kids, for example. My two youngest are four and five years old.

The third game being published by Chucklefish Games that was announced today was the one that I’m the most interested in.

The first week of the year offers up some slim pickings on the eShop. Pokemon Snap for the N64 is available on the Wii U Virtual Console and that’s really the biggest release of the week. Only a handful of indie games to check out.

As always head past the break for the full list of games and deals available.
