Natsume Inc. and Rising Star Games have announced Harvest Moon: Light of Hope for PlayStation 4, PC, and Nintendo Switch.
The game begins with players setting out looking for a fresh start and new surroundings. However, during the voyage, their ship is hit by a monsoon and goes down. Players then find themselves in a small harbor town, now in a shambles following the storm, and it will be up to them to help rebuild the town and save the lighthouse.
“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,” Hiro Maekawa, President & CEO of Natsume, said. “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!”
“Partnering with Natsume for over a decade, we’ve been delighted to bring the joyful gameplay of Harvest Moon to fans in Europe and beyond,” added Martin Defries, managing director of Rising Star Games. “We are excited to be part of the unveiling of Harvest Moon: Light of Hope at E3.”
Light of Hope will be the first time a Harvest Moon game has been available on PC on Nintendo Switch.
