Natsume and Rising Star Games are teaming up for a new Harvest Moon, Light of Hope. Instead of minding a small farm, players will find themselves shipwrecked en route to a new home, stuck in a village that’s been ravaged by the same storm. Determined to help the townsfolk, players set out to rebuild the damaged buildings as well as save their lighthouse. There will still be plenty of farming, with crops and livestock to tend, but also resource hunting to repair buildings, neighbors to befriend, and eventually, romantic interests to woo. Light of Hope also marks the series debut for PC and—less surprisingly—Switch. E3 attendees will be able to try it out in South Hall, Booth 2047.
As a reminder, Natsume also recently re-released several titles as part of their 20-year celebrations, including Harvest Moon: A Wonderful Life Special Edition and Harvest Moon: Save the Homeland for the PlayStation 4, and Harvest Moon 64 for the Nintendo Wii U.
Harvest Moon: Light of Hope is scheduled to launch in June for NS, PC, and PS4.
