Harvest Moon: Light of Hope tasks you more than just farming
After being announced earlier in the year, shown off at E3, which we did get to play, Natsume are finally starting to show the game off to the public. They are doing this via series of posts over on the companies Facebook page and while there is no count as to the number of them that will happen, what it means is that we get to learn more about Harvest Moon: Light of Hope and more importantly, we get to see it in action.
The feature is being presented by Taka, a producer on the game and while the first is all about rebuilding, there is a lot more to do in the game. Here is the first post, because we at Vooks love you.
One of the exciting new features in Harvest Moon: Light of Hope is the rebuilding aspect of the game. Since you’ve landed on an island that’s been hit by a severe storm, most of the buildings have been destroyed when you first arrive. Therefore, it’s your job to rebuild them so that the villagers who used to reside there will return to the island.
Rebuilding will start out fairly easy. For example, Sam the merchant’s house will only require a few pieces of lumber to rebuild. However, as you proceed through the game, the more challenging the items to rebuild the various buildings across the island will be to acquire!
And in addition to houses, you’ll need to repair things like bridges that were also damaged in the storm to access new and interesting areas!
Rebuilding is just one of the new and returning features in Harvest Moon: Light of Hope.
The game is coming to Switch, except no release date has been announced yet, but stay tuned as when it is given, we will let you know.
