It seems farming sim fans will have to wait a little longer to play the newest Harvest Moon title - unless they live in Japan of course.
While Harvest Moon: A Wonderful Life has exceeded 73,000 pre-orders in Japan, and it still on track for a release in 10 days, the North American release has been pushed back to winter 2004. So, you should expect to see the game available sometime between this December and January 2004. The GameCube exclusive farming title was previously scheduled to come out next month.
Interestingly enough, the European release is set for November 2003, so it seems North America might be the last major location for the game to be released.
