Pre-order Harvest Moon: A New Beginning for Nintendo 3DS through the Natsume Online Store in the United States starting September 24th, 2012 and you will receive a free 12-inch plush Harvest Moon cow as part of the “15th Anniversary Edition.” This pre-order offer is exclusive to the Natsume Online Store and costs $49.99, $10 more than the standard edition with the Plush Yak.
A rep for Natsume adds that whether you go for the Yak or the Cow, “the game is identical. There is no special version of the game,” meaning that the plush is the only difference.
Harvest Moon: A New Beginning will be released on November 6th, 2012. See the gallery below for more pictures.
