With a lot of gameplay elements added to the traditional Harvest Moon gameplay, The Winds of Anthos definitely has what it takes to revitalize the Harvest Moon franchise, a franchise that has been struggling critically for a while now. Will you be able to breathe new life into Anthos?
The Harvest Goddess and her Harvest Sprites have always looked over the land of Anthos, leading to a peaceful and bountiful life in the farmlands. However, a cataclysmic volcanic eruption ten years ago led to destruction. The Harvest Goddess and the Harvest Sprites used all of their power to keep the people and animals of Anthos safe, but the disaster has left each village blocked off from each other, with many people still trapped outside of their villages, unable to return.
Ten years later, you find an SOS signal sent by the Harvest Goddess herself, sent to the world in the form of a message in a bottle. This brings you to Anthos with the task of reviving the Harvest Goddess, the Harvest Sprites, and Anthos itself, reconnecting the lost villages and helping villagers return to their homes at long last.
