Harvest Moon: A Wonderful Life will span a lifetime on the farm and follow the drama that goes with it. Not only must you build and successfully run a farm, but you must also build a successful life with family and friends! This new Harvest Moon experience will take the best qualities of the series and add more...more animals, more vegetables and more drama! What sort of life will you live?
The game offers connectivity with the Game Boy Advance game Harvest Moon: Friends of Mineral Town and Harvest Moon: More Friends of Mineral Town. Another related GameCube game called Harvest Moon: Another Wonderful Life was released where the player goes through the storyline of A Wonderful Life as a female character.
There are no reported problems with this title.
