As the Harvest Moon franchise celebrates its 20th anniversary this year, there's a new game in the series, Harvest Moon: Light of Hope, that's set to release on PC (Steam), Nintendo Switch, and PS4.
"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 & 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!"
The setting for the new game is a harbour town that has seen better days. The player is caught in a monsoon and his ship goes down, you end up in the harbour town that's also ravaged by the storm. Your task is then to bring it back to its former glory and rebuild the lighthouse. This will take a lot of hard work, growing crops, managing livestock, and gathering materials.
As you may have noticed, Harvest Moon: Light of Hope, will be playable on both PC and Switch at E3 in June.
This new game isn't the only Harvest Moon celebration that is set to take place as Natsume will re-release the following games: Harvest Moon: A Wonderful Life Special Edition and Harvest Moon: Save the Homeland for the PlayStation 4, and Harvest Moon 64 for the Nintendo Wii U.
