In celebration of Harvest Moon's 20th anniversary, publisher Natsume Inc. announced an Harvest Moon: Light of Hope for PS4, PC and Switch. According to the publisher, the new game will encompass twenty years of spirit that has made the franchise what it is today.
In Harvest Moon: Light of Hope, players begin the game as they set out looking for a fresh start and new surroundings. During their voyage, their ship is hit by a monsoon and goes down. As they drift into a small harbor town, now in a shambles from the storm, it will be up to the player to help rebuild the town and save the lighthouse...but it won't be easy! Nevertheless, with some 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. 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 title will be playable on both Switch and PC in the Natsume booth at E3 2017 in South Hall, Booth 2047 in June. No details on the game's release date were provided.
