Be aware that this ad for the latest Harvest Moon game might make you barfy.

The clip, which is promoting Harvest Moon: Tsunagaru Shin Tenchi, carries the following warning:

This video contains special footage that reproduces the field of view of various animals. These visuals may cause discomfort in some viewers. Small children and viewers who are easily susceptible to motion sickness or similar ailments should take caution when viewing.

I'm not sure if this is the first video game ad with a warning like this. Feel free to name others should you know any!

And if you don't get motion sick easily, watch the online commercial below:

Veterinary physician Nobuyuki Kanemaki from Azabu University consulted on the ad, and a configuration of six Go-Pro cameras were used to pull off the full 360 degree view.


Harvest Moon: Tsunagaru Shin Tenchi will be out on the 3DS later this month in Japan.
