Harvest Moon: Light of Hope Shines on Switch


One of these days I will grow old of these pun titles, but today is not that day.

Natsume today announced, in celebration of the 20th anniversary of the series and as a pre-E3 special, Harvest Moon: Light of Hope will be coming to Nintendo Switch! This game will be a celebration of the 20-year history of Harvest Moon and encompass the spirit of all of the games that have come before it.

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!

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!

Natsume has also released a new site focusing on the history of the series, which you can visit here.
