Unused Items

To do:
Add screenshots of hacked items.

There are a number of unused items that can be hacked into the game.

Invisible Items

Hacking these items into the game will show your character holding nothing (invisible item):

  • Goat
  • Teddy Bear
  • Flower Pot


This could mean that there was originally the ability to chop trees/stumps, similar to other games in the Harvest Moon series.

Unused Videos

Rebirth FMV Tech Demo

v1.01 of the Japanese release contains an unused video of Nintendo's Rebirth FMV Tech Demo, listed as demo.thp on the disc.

This was likely used as a placeholder video to play on the title screen when left idle.

It was replaced with actual gameplay footage (demo3.thp) later in development.
