As the customizable hero or heroine, you arrive at Echo Village, where your parents recently offered you the opportunity to renovate the abandoned family farm. But by the looks of the town, it appears that there's more than just the farm that needs renovating. After an economic slump, most of the inhabitants have opted to leave the village behind, giving it the empty appearance that it has now. For the ranch's successful revival, the town must be rebuilt as well. By gathering the right materials and blueprints, you must get Echo Village thriving as it once was to make your farm the most successful farm in the land.

Harvest Moon 3D: A New Beginning is, as most others in the Harvest Moon series, a farm simulation game. However, it comes with the added responsibility of transforming a dying town into a lively community. New animals and crop species are available, as well as customization options to both the farm and the town. Blueprints can be purchased to build a variety of objects, from furniture to buildings. As in other games in the series, the player character must choose an eligible bachelor or bachelorette to start a family; new features include dating before proposing and the ability to go on honeymoons and vacations at various locations. Additionally, the ability to interact with other players is made possible through use of the Nintendo Network.
