Harvest Moon: Light of Hope announced for Switch
Ready your pickaxes and renew your subscription to the “Weekly Seeds” magazine, Natsume is bringing Harvest Moon: Light of Hope to Switch. This new instalment in the farm simulation RGP celebrates the series’ 20th anniversary. For the occasion, Hiro Maekawa (President & CEO of Natsume) shared a statement saying that Light of Hope would “set itself apart from other Harvest Moon titles with its depth, including a robust story and clear-cut goals“.
No official release date yet, but Harvest Moon: Light of Hope will be playable at E3 2017. So expect to see some proper gameplay footage, maybe during the Nintendo Spotlight.
“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!”
