    Default Harvest Moon (SNES) - Does a UK PAL version exist?

    Until now, I was always led to believe that Harvest Moon for the SNES only saw a PAL release in France, Germany, and Australia.

    The Wikipedia page doesn't mention anything about a UK release: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Harvest_Moon_(video_game)

    However, new evidence has emerged that it may have been released in the UK as well, albeit in extremely limited numbers

    User Geo2004z on the www.sealedgameheaven.com forum claims to have a UK release of Harvest Moon:

    This is my mint copy with a scratch at the front of the box. The cartridge has never been played at my snes is new.


    Has anyone else here seen or heard anything about a UK release for this game? Does anyone else here own a boxed complete PAL copy of Harvest Moon for the SNES?

    My own, admittedly limited, research into this a few years ago only found evidence of a German release. However I don't see why it wouldn't have got an English release if German/French/Austrialian got one.
    I reject your reality and substitute it for one of my own!

    Several other UK copies have emerged:

    It also appears to have the designation code: SNSP-AYWP-NUKV


    Does anyone know if there exists a ROM for a UK version of this game?

    No idea about the rom, though I doubt it. If you're just playing the game on an emulator though, you can just use the NA-NTSC no? It's in English. If you want to use it on a flash cart and PAL TV, you might be S.O.L. Translations from NTSC have been done to Spanish and Polish, but don't see any German to anything, in my "archives." Since the game was released in NA, not much cause for an English translation.

    Yup, the UKV version definitely exists and has been documented in the RetroCollect database for quite some time:

    You should check there more often

    Does anyone know if there exists a ROM for a UK version of this game?
    I have a question.

    I know that this thread is several months old but I will give it a try.
    This week i bought a cart of the game and the code says SNSP-AYWP-EUR .
    I have checked the screentext and they are English.
    I also checked the picture you linked and I noticed that manual and cart have a different code ,the cart has my code on it while the manual has the NUKV code on it .
    I have been unable to check this with pictures of other complete copies becuase I canīt find one on the net.
    Is it possible that I have bought the cart of the rare uk Version of the game ?
    Is it possible that cart and manual have a different code in the UK version ?

    I hope a snes specialist can help me.

    Thank you

    Hi,
    I'm sorry for bumping this thread but I just wanted to add in what I know.

    This picture:

    My cart has the designation seen in the above picture SNSP-AYWP-EUR. Whether another
    version designated NUKV exists, I don't know. However the box and manual is NUKV.

    Maybe this can clarify some things. Many people seem to believe that this game only saw
    release in Germany and France. I actually contacted an eBay seller listing a repro of
    the PAL-version stating in the description that it was never released in Europe in English,
    but he didn't really care much about my remark.

    Regards,
    Fo0+

    NUKV?
    First I've ever heard of a 4-letter region code for a game on a Nintendo console.

    Me too, it's strange but it seems like it's the same thing with the German and French version of the game according to http://www.retrocollect.com/search/game-158.html
