Out today on PC via Steam, Harvest Moon: Light of Hope is the next life-sim game in the series made by Natsume that will be coming to the Nintendo Switch. Fans of Harvest Moon: The Lost Valley can enjoy the same cast of characters and more.

As per the description on Steam:

“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!”

Natsume has also released a compilation video showcasing the above features and more.


Listed for $29.99, the game is currently on sale until November 22nd for $26.99 on Steam. We’ll report when the game is out for Nintendo Switch, as well as its pricing, once the information becomes available.
