Harvest Moon: The Winds of Anthos is a new cozy farming game by Natsume, part of the Harvest Moon series. It’s set to come out this autumn, and you can already order it in advance. Some preorders even come with special bonuses.
This game is the sixth in the Harvest Moon series made by Natsume, but it’s not linked to “Story of Seasons” or any Harvest Moon games made before 2014. In “Harvest Moon: The Winds of Anthos,” players get to discover different landscapes and regions in the Anthos world. It offers a fresh twist on the farming simulation genre.
Games like Harvest Moon, Story of Seasons, and Stardew Valley let players experience a calm farm life where they can raise animals and even find love. In Harvest Moon: The Winds of Anthos, things get more exciting as a volcano eruption makes the Harvest Goddess fall asleep.
The player’s character is the hero called upon to save the day. The game includes mini-games, special events, unique exotic animals, and plenty of enjoyable farming and relationship-building activities. This article provides everything we know about Harvest Moon: The Winds of Anthos.

Harvest Moon: The Winds of Anthos Gameplay
In Harvest Moon: The Winds of Anthos, players get a message in a bottle that the Harvest Goddess sent out a decade ago. She sent it before she went to sleep deeply. She asks for help, saying that Anthos, the land she and the Harvest Sprites were supposed to protect, is in trouble.
They used up their power to save the people and animals from a big volcanic eruption. Now, villages are cut off from each other, and it’s the player’s job to reconnect them and wake up the Harvest Goddess and Harvest Sprites.
Harvest Moon: The Winds of Anthos is primarily a farming game. In this game, players get to take care of cows, chickens, sheep, and even some unique animals from the nearby land on their farm. You can farm in various places, including snowy mountains and sunny beaches.
You can plant special seeds called Harvest Wisps to grow new crops and contribute to the economy of those areas. Alongside all the farming and saving Anthos, the player character can also form romantic relationships with five potential partners of each gender in the game.
