Harvest Moon: Back to Nature Comes to PlayStation Plus Premium

    The PlayStation 1 classic farming sim returns.

    Sony Interactive Entertainment announced its PlayStation Plus Extra and Premium game catalog for February 2023, which includes the classic Harvest Moon: Back to Nature game. Nearly 23 years since its launch on November 20, 2000 for the original PlayStation, Harvest Moon: Back to Nature returns to PlayStation consoles. 

    PlayStation Plus Premium subscribers gain access to Harvest Moon: Back to Nature starting February 21, 2023 on PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 5. Longtime fans and newcomers alike may enjoy the original title while waiting on the next game in the Harvest Moon series. Further, Natsume reached out to Final Weapon to celebrate the impending launch of Harvest Moon: Back to Nature for PlayStation Plus Premium. 

    Harvest Moon: Back to Nature left an impact on players over twenty years ago as the first farming sim for PlayStation,” said Hiro Maekawa, President and CEO of Natsume Inc. “It is a joy to work with PlayStation again to bring one of our most beloved titles to PlayStation Plus so that fans can revisit a game that they so fondly remember, and new players can play a classic game that created an entirely new genre!”

    Here’s an overview of the title via Natsume:


    As a child you visited your Grandfather’s ranch when vacation plans fell through. Return to the farm that holds fond childhood memories and rejuvenate its long-neglected fields. Tend to your livestock and interact with over 50 characters. As you struggle to make the farm something your grandfather would be proud of, one nagging question remains: What ever happened to the girl that you knew a decade ago?

    Key Features:
    • Non-linear, real-time game play allows for a wide assortment of events
    • Compete with villagers in challenging festival mini contests
    • Add a kitchen and collect recipes

    Natsume is currently developing Harvest Moon: The Winds of Anthos, the next entry in the long-running franchise. Harvest Moon: The Winds of Anthos launches in summer 2023, and platforms were not announced.
