My Garden [Nintendo 3DS – Cancelled]

My Garden [Nintendo 3DS – Cancelled]

My Garden is a cancelled “garden simulator” that was in development by EA Salt Lake in late 2009, for the Nintendo 3DS. The game was nearly complete graphically, but it seems that the gameplay was not very good and it wasn’t very intuitive at all. The gameplay involved a mascot named Tanooki watching over you as you plant different color seeds that did different things. You could also spruce up your garden with objects like pinwheels. The My Garden beta had still no music, only sound fx. Some parts of the in-game text had dialogue dubbed, but only a few screens had spoken dialogue.

Some more info from IGN:

Players will be given six unique gardens to play, grow, and nurture. In order to advance, you must collect 300 unqiue plants with the help of the game’s guide and aid, Tanuki.

Tanuki will help you grow your plants by unlocking different suits that can attract certain animals to your garden. Shaking the 3DS will cause animals to leave while whistling can attract them.

There are also photo challenges in My Garden that players will need to complete to progress. Photos can be saved and shared with friends.

Thanks a lot to Gary for the contribution!

    ELECTRONIC ARTS SEEDS THE GROUND FOR MY GARDEN* IN 3-D
    New Gardening Game to Blossom on Nintendo 3DS
    REDWOOD CITY, Calif. – September 15, 2010 – The EA Play Label of Electronic Arts Inc. (NASDAQ: ERTS) today announced My Garden* (working title) for the Nintendo 3DSTM, a new title in development that will allow players to create custom gardens in a variety of unique and beautiful environments. Optimized for the coming 3-D platform, My Garden* will offer graphics that bring flowers to life in a vibrant and realistic manner. Digital gardeners will get to choose from hundreds of flower and plant varieties as well as unique items to design, cultivate and enhance landscapes. My Garden* is scheduled to be unveiled at EA’s Tokyo Game Showcase on September 15, 2010.

    “With My Garden*, our aim was simple: to make something beautiful that comes to life on the Nintendo 3DS like no other platform,” said Rod Humble, Executive Vice President of the EA Play Label. “We hope to offer a game that’s so immersive that it truly brings the delight of owning a garden to life through a visually stunning 3D experience.”

    With the help of a cute sidekick named Tanuki, players will test their green thumbs on a variety of missions that inspire them to create beautiful outdoor spaces in six unique environments such as an arid desert, the banks of a cascading brook, and a lush rainforest. Gardeners will snap a photo of their creations with the game’s free-roaming in-game camera in order to unlock rare and exotic flowers. Along the way, My Garden* players will also unlock more than 20 different abilities for Tanuki, who uses those attributes, plus a little magic, to help the garden reach its full potential.

    Every gardener will have a bouquet of flowers and items to choose from in creating his or her own floral paradise. As new growth begins to push, the flora comes alive in a resplendent array of colors and textures, attracting natural garden visitors ranging from birds to butterflies, insects and other creatures. If a player wants a few more feathered friends in the garden, simply whistle bird calls into the Nintendo 3DS microphone to summon additional members of the flock. Alternatively, if too many unwanted visitors arrive at the garden gate, a quick shake of the Nintendo 3DS will send them scattering while also dispensing in-game coins that can be used to add a variety of new garden tools and more plants.

    My Garden will be released alongside the hardware launch of the Nintendo 3DS. For more information on My Garden*, please visit: http://www.ea.com/mygarden.
