by Rainier on Feb. 21, 2018 @ 12:00 a.m. PST

Harvest Moon: Light of Hope will encompass twenty years of spirit that has made the franchise what it is today and 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!

Looking for a fresh start and some new surroundings, you set off on a voyage to begin your new life! Unfortunately, the weather has different plans, as your ship is hit by a monsoon, and goes down!

You drift into a small harbor town, now in a shambles from the storm, where a young doctor named Jeanne saves your life. The town has essentially been deserted, but you're never one to back down from a challenge! It will be up to you 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, you will be able to make new friends, start a family, revive the lighthouse, and save the town, your new home!


Harvest Moon: Light of Hope Special Edition is available for pre-order for $39.99 at GameStop, either on Nintendo Switch or on PS4. A 6-inch Harvest Moon Chocolate Cow Plush is included as a pre-order bonus with the standard boxed retail version.

"Every Harvest Moon game has included the beloved cow, so they've become a symbol of the Harvest Moon franchise. The chocolate cow is the perfect companion for the release of Harvest Moon: Light of Hope Special Edition," said Hiro Maekawa, President & CEO of Natsume. "Collectors, fans, and new players alike won't want to miss out!"

Following the successful release of Harvest Moon: Light of Hope on PC (Steam) in late 2017, the Special Edition has some brand-new features only available on the console versions. More information about these features will be revealed leading up to launch in May.
