Everyone’s favourite farming-and-dating life sim, Harvest Moon
, is celebrating its 20th anniversary! In light of this significant milestone, Natsume Inc and Rising Star Games have announced their all new title Harvest Moon: Light of Hope
. The new game will be available on the Nintendo Switch, Steam, and Playstation 4, marking the first time a Harvest Moon
title will be on Steam and the Switch.
In Harvest Moon: Light of Hope, players begin the game the way they usually do in Harvest Moon titles: trying to make a fresh start in new surroundings. During their voyage, their ship is hit by a monsoon and goes down. They later wake up on the shores of a small harbour town that is now in shambles from the storm. It will be up to the player to help rebuild the town and save the lighthouse. Through hard work growing crops, tending livestock, and gathering materials for repairs, players will be able to make new friends, start a family, revive the lighthouse and save the town!
“Harvest Moon: Light of Hope
will set itself apart from other Harvest Moon
titles with its depth, including a robust story and clear-cut goals,” said Hiro Maekawa, President and CEO of Natsume. “We set out to create a SNES-style nostalgic game with deep and meaningful characters and events, and we are excited to have our fans play it at E3 and tell us what they think!”
Harvest Moon: Light of Hope will be playable on both Switch and PC at the Natsume booth at E3 2017 in June.
