FARMER (HARVEST MOON) FOR SUPER SMASH BROS ULTIMATE
FoMT_Pete.png


WHO?
The farmer (farmer and name vary from game to game, the one shown above is commonly known as Pete) is the main protagonist of the Harvest Moon (Known in Japan as Bokujō Monogatari) series of games. After acquiring an abandoned farm in a small town, you are tasked to bring it back to it's former glory, by growing crops, and raising livestock. Along the way, you can grow acquaintances with the local townsfolk, and if you're good enough, you'll even be able to woo the bachelor/bachelor of choice and get married.

WHY?

Harvest Moon has been a notable third party series on Nintendo platforms since the first game's release on the SNES in 1997. Going on to have releases on almost every major Nintendo console, onward.

There are different versions of the farmer throughout the series, both male and female.
The ones shown above from left to right are
Pete, Claire, Mark, Pony. Kevin, and Angela.
talk about obvious alternate costumes


Moveset wise, there's quite a bit of potential. Of course we need to talk about the farming tools. I can see some moves involving a pitchfork, a hoe, an axe, and even a sickle. There's also potential in a possible stamina system. You see, in the Harvest Moon games, when you use tools, you drain some energy, use too much, and you'll faint from fatigue... In Smash it'd probably work like Robin's tomes, being a little bar above the character HUD. Using the tools will drain a bit of the bar, and when it's all gone you'll stop everything to regain some breath, of course, this'll leave you open, so you'll have to think out your moves very carefully, and use your tools wisely.

THEY SOUND INTERESTING, HOW CAN I HELP?
You can help me out in one of two ways

1. Give me suggestions like a potential moveset, or some alternate costumes (This thread is far from complete, so any help will be appreciated)

2. You can show support for their inclusion
All you have to do is vote in the poll above with a yes, or tell me in the thread replies that you support their inclusion. Do either of these things, and I'll add your name to the support list

WE ARE FARMERS! (SUPPORT LIST)


Thank you so much for checking out this thread! And I hope you have a great day![/SPOILER][/USER][/SPOILER]​

Harvest Moon content would be great!

Maybe they can use their pitchforks for their tilts and smashes? I’ll admit, I haven’t really played much Harvest Moon, don i can’t really contribute too much towards moveset.

Their alts should probably be like Villager’s: 4 male, 4 female, with each pair being based on a different Harvest Moon game.

Loved me Harvest Moon. Sadly I think the Villager does roughly what they could do. Can even grow a tree which would have been a nice idea for the farmer to reference crop growing. Isabelle even took the fishing pole away!

All there's left are the sickle, hoe, hammer, and barnyard animals. I suppose it would be doable...but Villager is essentially taking its charm.

Forgot to join before, but count me in as a supporter. I have a bit more experience with the spinoff, Rune Factory, but regardless I like the idea of Harvest Moon/Story of Seasons as they are quite one of the most relaxing series there is, have a good story with Nintendo, and overall is just charming.

Man, I used to love playing these games back in the day. I could see Sakurai making a fighter from this game, and using farming tools and chores to beat up opponents would be pretty funny. Count me in.

I have never played this series. But I am a former city dweller turned peasant. Permaculture is a response to the collapse of the system has already begun, the collapse being induced by the convergence of economic, ecological, energy, political and social crises. Any contemporary gaming work should raise awarness consumers to preparefor the new world of their children. So, even if there is already Villager then Isabelle in SmashU, I think Haverst Moon isn't too much to raise awareness. Personally, I hope and encourage this approach, I support Haverst Moon rep.

Nintendo DREAM and Harvest Moon
Nintendo DREAM is a Nintendo video game magazine published in Japan. There are pages about Mario, Zelda, Kirby, Fire Emblem, Mother, Pokemon + Capcom + Sega + Konami + Bamco + Marvelous + Level 5. Harvest Moon has been featured each on 8 covers of magazine. But the series don't appear in Smash Bros, not even Spirit / Mii Costume. So, it would be possible for there to be Harvest Moon content (40 different games with the spin-off Rune Factory) in the DLC.
