The publisher Natsume has released the first trailer for its upcoming fast-paced farming game - Harvest Moon: Mad Dash. Adding more chaos to this title, the developer allows players to play with their friends as well as going solo!

Taking this occasion, the publisher also revealed the release date for the game, and it's much closer than you've expected. Nevertheless, here's the trailer, which you can have a look below:

Another title in the farm life franchise

The Harvest Moon series has already gained a lot of fans for its fascinating gameplay and vibrant visuals. And with Harvest Moon: Mad Dash, Natsume is very likely to keep their pace.

Unlike some titles in the franchise, Mad Dash features time-limited fast-paced gameplay, in which the player must complete the objectives within the time. For each level, you'll receive a list of orders, which you'll have to fulfill. Most of the time, you and your friend will have to plant and harvest as many crops as possible.

You only have a limited amount of time to plant and harvest your crops

The planting and harvesting mechanics in this game are color-matching, in which you plant some kind of crops next to each other, they'll be combined to form a bigger crop! That's not a new mechanics at all, but it definitely brings new colors into the game.

But the missions don't stop there. Sometimes, you're required to feed animals, milk them and even fishing. That's a lot of objectives, so it's quite challenging to get through without the help of your friends. Furthermore, your entire place can be destroyed from sliding rocks, lava and even stampeding warthogs. That's why you need to be quick with your action!

Last but not least, the game will rank your performance on a star-based grade. One star is enough to get you through the level, but you will need 3 stars to unlock more stages. Like many games with a star-ranking system, you'll have to do some extra jobs, and the chaotic multiplayer experience won't make it easy!
