Alphadia Genesis (WiiU)

…may be coming sooner than anticipated!  The localization has literally flown by and we’re approaching lotcheck *much* sooner than we originally anticipated.  Tentatively, that means we’re moving the release date window from Winter (November-February 2015 approximately) to Fall 2014 (September-November approximately)

Of course, there’s still some factors that could delay the game (we could fail lotcheck, Nintendo could push the date out, etc) so as soon as I have a firm release date, I will be sure to announce it here :D

Hooooooooooly cow I have been busy.  But my ask box is now empty of everything I can answer! \o/

Also made a very important appointment that I’m super ridiculously excited about and Tumblr will make fun of me for.  Details to follow :P

Sally is a youthful villager from Harvest Moon: The Lost Valley!  One of the youngest residents in the Lost Valley, Sally always tries to be strong and reliable, though sometimes she can’t resist acting her age.
"Don’t patronize me just because I’m a kid!"
A mix of self-sufficient and precocious, Sally always tries to be strong, and thinks she can take care of herself without anybody’s help. However, still being a young girl, she sometimes gets frustrated when she can’t do something on her own. Raised by her grandmother, Sally was orphaned as an infant, and yearns to know more about where she truly comes from. However, she hides these yearnings deep inside her heart.
"I don’t need any help! I can do it myself!"

You’ll need to earn Sally’s trust and friendship before she’ll open up to you, but when she does, you’ll discover a whole new side of her! Sally also has a ‘rivalry’ with a boy around her age named Jimmy – watch for his story coming in August!
