In Harvest Moon: Light of Hope, players begin the game as most Harvest Moon protagonists do: looking for a fresh start and new surroundings that happen to lead to farming. During their voyage, a storm breaks out and the ship goes down. They wash up on the shores of a small harbour town which is now in shambles from the storm and set off to rebuild the town and save the lighthouse. With all the usual staples of Harvest Moon included; such as 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 Special Edition is the console release of the original Steam edition of Harvest Moon: Light of Hope, which is now available for pre-order at Gamestop. Pre-orders of Harvest Moon: Light of Hope Special Edition will come with a 6 inch plush of the series’ iconic barnyard friend: the cow (now in chocolate!).

The Special Edition version of the game has some brand-new features only available in the console versions. More information about these features will be revealed leading up to the launch in May.
