Natsume Inc. announced that Harvest Moon: Light of Hope will launch on Steam on the 14th of November. The Steam version launches ahead of the Nintendo Switch and PS4 versions, which are coming in early 2018.
Due to the hard work of our team, development for Harvest Moon: Light of Hope for PC ran ahead of schedule, allowing us to release the game early to PC players. We have enjoyed creating an all-new game that honors 20 years of Harvest Moon, and what's more, the franchise will finally be available for the first time on PC, something fans have long asked for!
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 includes new features such as repairing, which enables the player to repair destroyed homes and unlock new shops, characters, farming tools, and farming land. The Farming Friend is another new addition, which helps players grow abundant crops. The game also introduces a retro plus feel, with classic SNES inspired graphics alongside some modern features in honor of the 20th anniversary. And in addition to these new features will be some familiar faces from previous Harvest Moon titles.
Harvest Moon: Light of Hope will be available for $29.99.
