Natsume announced that Harvest Moon: Light of Hope Special Edition is available for pre-order for $39.99 at GameStop. A 6-inch Harvest Moon Chocolate Cow Plush is included as a pre-order bonus with the standard boxed retail version. Harvest Moon: Light of Hope Special Edition will be launching on Nintendo Switch and PlayStation 4 both at retail and digitally in May 2018.
“Every Harvest Moon game has included the beloved cow, so they’ve become a symbol of the Harvest Moon franchise. The chocolate cow is the perfect companion for the release of Harvest Moon: Light of Hope Special Edition,” said Hiro Maekawa, President & CEO of Natsume. “Collectors, fans, and new players alike won’t want to miss out!”
Following the successful release of Harvest Moon: Light of Hope on Steam in late 2017, the Special Edition has some brand-new features only available on the console versions. More information about these features will be revealed leading up to launch in May.
In Harvest Moon: Light of Hope, 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 storm 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!
