Square-Enix has published new information and screenshots for HARVESTintroducing the history and environment of the spring city of Nemea, the resident of the city of Istina, jobs, character stories, etc.
Get the details below.
■ The city of spring: Nemea
Welcome to Nemea!
In this beautiful city, flowers bloom all year round due to the influence of the nearby Spring Seaslight.

Once night falls, the city shows another facet.
Cherry blossoms dance against the night sky in a dreamlike spectacle.
The story of Nemea
Despite its beauty, there are problems in the city of Nemea. A giant egg has appeared on the Spring Seaslight, one of the giant crystals that rules the seasons. Since then, unknown monsters have been flying around town and attacking the inhabitants!
When you visit Nemea, you help investigate the Seaslight, alongside Asyl, a member of the Argus Squad who protects the town.
You can see the Spring Seaslight from the Nemea observation deck.
Your group goes to investigate the Seaslight…
… but what will you find waiting for you there?
■ Resident of Nemea: Istina
Next, we’ll introduce you to one of the memorable characters you’ll meet in this flowery place: Istina.
Istina is a teacher who lives with the children of the town orphanage.
She is intellectual, calm and rarely displays her emotions openly. She enjoys reading about different places in the world and often reads aloud to children.
This is how she spends her days and is loved by the townspeople. However, it is said that she arrived in Nemea only a few years ago.
By meeting the protagonist, she must confront the past she has hidden…
■ Adventure: Works
When it comes to combat, you have access to several jobs, which define the weapon and abilities you can use in combat. Last time we showed you the Fighter, Mage, and Shadow Walker jobs, this time we’re revealing the Sky Lancer.
This job uses a spear and excels in physical attacks with wind attributes. Because it learns many wide-range skills that take advantage of the lance’s reach, the Sky Lancer is very useful against multiple enemies!
When you recruit a character who has a certain job, the protagonist will also be able to use that job! In the screenshot above you can see how working with Asyl unlocked the Sky Lancer for use!
■ Socializing: Character Stories
Characters who can join you in battle as allies and other important characters each have their own character story.
These stories focus on the issues that each character faces.
As you progress through a character story, learning more about each character’s thoughts and feelings, your closeness to them will increase. This grants a range of advantages in battle, and you can even receive rewards!
■ Daily Life: Special Spring Products
Farming is one of the many activities of daily living that you can do in HARVEST. By planting crops and nurturing them diligently, you will be able to harvest them to sell or use yourself in crafts and kitchen.
Some produce can be harvested all year round, but some types of fruits and vegetables can only be grown during a specific season. Here is an overview of some spring crops you can grow:
These cultures can be used as ingredients in appetizing meals. Here’s a look at a few of them – sorry if that makes your stomach rumble!
—Peachy pink foam
—Zucchini and ground meat sandwiches
– Strawberry Shortcake
Of course, there are many other types of special spring produce you can grow, and many more meals to prepare. But posting more food photos would just be cruel, so we’ll let you find out for yourself.
■ Daily life: Fishing
Fishing is another way to happily pass the hours HARVEST. You will be able to do this when you get a fishing rod.
Find a fishing spot and you can cast your line and catch fish. Just like crops grown on your farm, you can ship fish for money or keep it for cooking.
What you can catch depends on your location and other conditions. Maybe you can even catch something other than a fish…
You can even upgrade your fishing rod, allowing you to catch even rarer fish!
■ Daily life: expedition
You can earn money by HARVEST by shipping the fruits and vegetables you harvest from your fields.
You can use machines you’ve crafted to create Processed Goods, which ship at an even higher price.
