European release date solidified however.
Although the Wii re-release of Harvest Moon: Magical Melody has been dated for a March 14th release in Europe, North American gamers may be out of luck. Looking for confirmation on the remake's release in North America, Siliconera received the following response from a rep at Natsume:
“at this time we have no plans to release (re-release) Harvest Moon: Magical Melody for the Nintendo Wii."
This is really not that surprising, given the fact that European publisher Rising Star has yet to publish concrete details on how exactly the remake will take advantage of the Wii's capabilities (concerns we detailed in our preview), and a North American release date was never announced or even really hinted at. At least Wii owners in North America can still play the excellent GameCube version though.
