Before the Switch Version, before the PS4 Version, Harvest Moon: Light of Hope launches of Steam first, on November 14! The Switch/PS4 versions will debut in Early 2018. 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!
How fortuitous that on the 20th anniversary of the series, it finally receives a PC release!
“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,” said Hiro Maekawa, President & CEO of Natsume. “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!”
And finally, there’s a Facebook Fan Page Art contest for Harvest Moon! Fans are encouraged to draw their favorite Harvest Moon characters/animals before the years end! Fantastic Natsume prizes await the winners! More info can be found here!
