Harvest Moon: Light of Hope will release November 14 for PC players on Steam. This year marks the 20th anniversary of the acclaimed farming simulator series! A Nintendo Switch and PS4 version are also in the works for early next year as well.
This marks the first time that a Harvest Moon game will appear on the PC, as Hiro Maekawa, CEO and President of Natsume states, “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!” Light of Hope will see players looking for a fresh start after their voyage ship gets hit by a monsoon and sinks. The player then drifts into a town that was destroyed by the storm, and it is up to the player to help rebuild the town and save the lighthouse! Players must harvest crops, tend livestock, make friends, save the lighthouse and the town!
New features include the ability to repair items such as houses, which can unlock shops and characters for the player to meet. Light of Hope also introduces the Farming Friend, which helps players grow crops. The game also includes SNES style graphics, to help celebrate the 20th anniversary. Harvest Moon: Light of Hope, will release on November 14 for PC, for $29.99, and will release early next on the Nintendo Switch and PS4.
