Harvest Moon is a cherished property that hasn’t seen a home console instalment in almost decade. But that’s about to change as Natsume announced Harvest Moon: Light of Hope, an all-new title set for the Switch, PlayStation 4 and Steam.
“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,” said Hiro Maekawa, President & CEO of Natsume in a press release. “We set out to create a SNES-style nostalgic game with deep and meaningful characters and events.”
Developed by Rising Star Games Harvest Moon: Light of Hope is a celebration of the 20th anniversary of the long-running franchise. Harvest Moon: Light of Hope also marks the first entry in the series to be available on Steam, and the Switch. Though no release date has been revealed, the title will be playable at E3 2016.
“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”, said Martin Defries, Managing Director, Rising Star Games in a press release. “We are excited to be part of the unveiling of Harvest Moon: Light of Hope at E3″.
If that’s not enough to get players excited, Natsume announced the re-release of Harvest Moon: A Wonderful Life Special Edition and Harvest Moon: Save the Homeland, for the PlayStation 4. Wii U players aren’t left in the dust though, as Harvest Moon 64 is available for Nintendo’s no deceased console.
