“SNES-Style” Harvest Moon Game Coming To Nintendo Switch, PS4, And PC

2017 marks the 20th anniversary of the Harvest Moon series, and publisher Natsume is marking the occasion with a brand-new game for Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 4, and PC.

Announced today, Harvest Moon: Light of Hope marks the franchise’s fist installment on PC and Nintendo Switch. The story begins with players traveling by boat and searching for a new home. Things don’t go to plan, as their boat is sunk by a terrible monsoon.

“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!” reads a line from Natsume’s press release. “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.”

Natsume president and CEO Hiro Maekawa said in a statement that Light of Hope will differentiate itself from past entries in the series with its “depth,” “robust story,” and “clear-cut goals.”

“We set out to create a SNES-style nostalgic game with deep and meaningful characters and events,” Maekawa added.

Natsume’s 20th anniversary celebrations have already included the re-release of Harvest Moon: A Wonderful Life Special Edition and Harvest Moon: Save the Homeland for PS4. Additionally, Natsume brought Harvest Moon 64 to Wii U, while a mobile game called Harvest Moon Lil’ Farmers is on the way. Natsume says it has a “year-long” celebration planned for Harvest Moon, so there might still be more to come. Meanwhile, the former developer of the Harvest Moon series released its latest game, Story of Seasons: Trio of Towns, earlier this year.

People attending E3 2017 can play Light of Hope at Natsume’s booth on the show floor.

Hey everyone, I'm Jonathan but people will know me as Jon... I enjoy hiking and exploring the outside world as well as getting to see fantastic views. It can bring you to the most beautiful places on earth and into contact with amazing plants and wildlife and can be done all year round which is why I enjoy it so much despite it being challenging sometimes due to the weather - it has allowed me to meet a lot of new people and experience things I wouldn't have before. I also find it relaxing and interesting. I also really enjoy blogging and sharing my experiences with similar people. Hopefully you will read mine. My company Adventures Gate displays my other hobby - gaming! I love collecting items to do with gaming and playing in general. I guess I am a bit of a geek when it comes to this. Adventures Gate now offer free postage options when you spend more than £20 (there may be a small additional charge for larger items). That`s free 1st class post in the UK and free airmail to Europe.
