The game will include some special console exclusive features but these won’t be revealed just yet. The wait shouldn’t be long as the console versions are scheduled to release in May. Last year was the 20th anniversary of the beloved farming game franchise that everyone loves to play. Sadly, players had to wait until this year for the game to make it to consoles.
If you are about the story for Harvest Moon: Light of Hope, just read this synopsis:
“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!”
Below are a few screens from the game. The price of the game is fairly reasonable. It will be $39.99 for both the PS4 and Switch versions of the game.
