Harvest Moon is the western localized name for Japan's Bokujou Monogatari, developed by Marvelous AQL. 

Natsume is the company that traditionally localized the titles in the west. 

So Marvelous acquired XSEED, a localization company, and decided to have them do the localization of the next Bokujou Monogatari game--which makes sense, but kinda left Natsume out in the cold. They don't really make their own games very much and made a lot of money localizing Harvest Moon.

So what Natsume did was decided to make their own farming sim, using the western name Harvest Moon, which they have the rights to. This also means they're preventing Marvelous from using the title they had released every other game in the series under in the English-speaking world.

I don't mind Natsume making their own version--more options, more competition is great. But most people don't know that this new Harvest Moon is essentially an impostor, and the series that they had been buying up until now (Bokujou Monogatari) is now known as Story of Seasons. 

Stealing the good will and reputation from an existing series just because they had the rights to the name makes me :(

Yeah. I thought you might like it because I know we've talked about console hardware in the past.

When they were comparing the differences between the PS3 and Xbox360, I laughed because it's totally expected.
