Harvest Moon: A Wonderful Life on Nintendo Gamecube

Harvest Moon: A Wonderful Life is a video game that was released in Japan on September 12, 2003 for the GameCube, and on November 11, 2004 for the PlayStation 2. It was developed by Marvelous Interactive Inc. and released by Natsume, and is part of the long-running Harvest Moon series of video games. The GameCube version offers connectivity with the Game Boy Advance game Harvest Moon: Friends of Mineral Town.

The player's farm has three fields, with varying levels of fertility. Plants must be watered more than once per day and nourished with fertilizer to obtain high-quality fruits and vegetables. Each crop has its ideal growing season, and will do poorly if planted at the wrong time of year. To obtain the highest quality crops and seeds, the player must water and fertilize the crops every day.

The game offers a variety of crops and trees, and also offers the ability to create hybrid crops. The player can do this by feeding any two different seeds or crops to a talking plant, Tartan, who appears after befriending Takakura and visiting him in the morning, from Chapter 2 onwards.

This is the first Harvest Moon game in which the player not only has a child after marriage, but the child ages to adulthood as well. The player's son will look similar to their wife, and have a unique set of interests and talents. The child's developing personality may be influenced by taking him places, introducing him to people, and giving him gifts related to various fields. At the end of the game, the (now adult) son will choose one of seven possible careers: Farmer, Rancher, Musician, Artist, Scholar, Athlete, or Scientist. If he becomes a farmer or a rancher, he will take over the family farm. He can not marry.
