Harvest Moon - Wata 9.4 CIB, SNES Natsume 1997


It's planting time! This ultra high-grade CIB copy of the original Harvest Moon for the SNES includes its open but intact original shrink wrap and is surely among one of the finest copies known. The first entry into the Harvest Moon franchise, which has spawned over twenty titles, was renowned for being a farming sim that was so much more than just a farming sim. Harvest Moon left games like Sim Farm behind, and paved the way for modern classics like Animal Crossing and Stardew Valley.

This particular copy is in crazy condition and is one of only a handful of 9.4 or greater CIBs we've handled across all systems and games. With only seven sealed copies on WATA's pop report as of their December 2022 population report and only a single copy rating higher than 9.0, this high-grade CIB is likely one of only a handful or so of the finest known copies of this seminal title for the Super Nintendo.

Also included is a Harvest Moon registration card with a whopping 9.6 WATA assigned sub-grade.
