Harvest Moon returns to Sony platforms after 10-year absence with Light of Hope for PS4

By Kin Boon on May 17, 2017

Before Farmville existed, gamers learn the good old ways of farming and rearing livestock with Harvest Moon, a classic franchise that has existed since the days of SNES. While it might still hold a special place in our hearts, it’s been a decade since Harvest Moon was last launched for a Sony platform, with PlayStation Portable’s Harvest Moon: Boy & Girl. This sets to change as longtime developer Natsume has announced Harvest Moon: Light of Hope for PlayStation 4.

The release of Light of Hope is also in conjunction with the 20th anniversary of the original Harvest Moon’s Western launch, and you can expect typical features associated with the series, namely tending to crops, rearing livestock, getting materials, and building relationships with friends and potential lovers. “We set out to create a SNES-style nostalgic game with deep and meaningful characters and events," said the president and CEO of Natsume, Hiro Maekawa.

The only concrete detail we have for Light of Hope is the cover image, but we can expect to hear more about the game during E3 2017.
