CSM writes: "Harvest Moon: Animal Parade is the latest in the longstanding franchise of farm simulation games set in a magical land. Here, players begin with either a boy or girl farmer with a small farm plot by the seaside near Harmonica Town. With the help of Finn, your harvest sprite - a helper fairy - you'll gradually build up your ranch with crops and animals, sell your wares and develop relationships with the townspeople. The community is also in need of your help in assisting the Harvest Godess, a diety who ensures healthy crops. This is acheived through tasks that lead to ringing five elemental bells."
