Harvest Moon vs Story of Seasons: The Future of Bokujou MonogatariEdit

In 1996 a company called Victor Interactive Software (VIS) created and published a farming simulation game which was called Bokujō Monogatari in Japan. When they decided to do a North American release, they teamed up with a North American video game publisher known as Natsume Inc. in order to give Bokujō Monogatari and English release. This release was given the name as Harvest Moon and released North America in 1997. Ever since then Bokujō Monogatari was released in Japan, and then localized by Natsume Inc. in North America under the name Harvest Moon.

Years went by and then VIS merged with the company Marvelous Interactive, and then again with another company to become Marvelous Entertainment, and then again to become Marvelous AQL. Throughout these various company mergers Marvelous AQL gained a company called XSeed Games (known for it's localization of Japanese video games for English audiences in North America), which was then forth is used to localize the Japan-published games of Marvelous AQL.

When the most recent Bokujō Monogatari game was published in Japan (Bokujō Monogatari: Tsunagaru Shin Tenchi (牧場物語 つながる新天地)), Marvelous choose to used their own location company XSeed Games in order to localize and

release the English version of this game to North America. However Natsume Inc. was the creator of the name Harvest Moon, therefore had the legal rights to that name. XSeed Games choose to use "Story of Seasons" as the new title for the Bokujō Monogatari franchise, and as such Natsume Inc. is able to create their own series using the name "Harvest Moon", that will be released exclusively to both North America and Europe, at the same time that XSeed Games is releasing Story of Seasons.
