On its 20th Anniversary, there seems like no better time to bring Harvest Moon to current generation consoles. Natsume has just announced Harvest Moon: Light of Hope will be coming to the Nintendo Switch, Playstation 4, and Steam. Natsume will be showcasing Light of Hope at this year’s E3.
In Light of Hope players will be shipwrecked onto a small harbor town as their ship is struck by a monsoon. With the town in shambles from the storm, players must revive the town and repair the lighthouse. Natsume President & CEO Hiro Maekawa had this to say about Light of Hope:
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!
Controller Crusade will get some hands-on time with Harvest Moon: Light of Hope during E3 week, so keep your eyes out for a preview next month!
