Natsume is kicking off a new Harvest Moon: Light of Hope video series today focusing on the game’s various features. The first entry introduces the rebuilding aspect.

Here’s the video:


And some background information:

We got our first glimpse of Harvest Moon: Light of Hope back at E3 in June. We now have a (slightly) better look at the game with another video below.

Worth noting, Natsume says that Harvest Moon: Light of Hope’s E3 appearance was based on a “very early build”.

It wasn’t too long ago that Natsume announced plans to localize River City: Rival Showdown on 3DS. Take a look at some off-screen footage below.

The Harvest Moon series went through a shakeup a few years ago. Marvelous took back ownership of the franchise – known as Bokujo Monogatari in Japan – and had XSEED publish future releases under the Story of Seasons name. Meanwhile, Natsume began to develop its own games under the original Harvest Moon title.

In an interview with GamesIndustry, Natsume CEO Hiro Maekawa reflected on the situation, calling it “a big surprise” and “really scary”. He said:

“That was a big surprise to us, especially to me. It was a really scary thing to me because we’d spent time and effort to establish a no-name farming simulation game to become one of the best-known farming simulation games for the entire family. We had tons of loyal Harvest Moon fans, but we couldn’t simply say to those loyal fans that there’s no Harvest Moon in the future. Fortunately, we learned and accumulated lots of know-how as to what Harvest Moon fans like and what makes them happy by localizing and publishing Harvest Moon games for the past 16 years, so we took that goodbye as a good opportunity for us, based upon our own experience, to take this franchise to the next step so we could continue to make all Harvest Moon fans very happy.”

Harvest Moon: Skytree Village players in Europe now have access to four new downloadable content packs. Two are free, and two are paid.

The free Farm Decorations Set contains sixteen new customization items, walls and decorations. The Harvest Sprite Statue Set can be downloaded for free as well, and has five new customization items including a Harvest Goddess-themed pergola and a Harvest Sprite statue.

The paid DLC packs are the New Female NPC Set and New Male NPC / Statue Set. Both are priced at €3.99 / £3.99 each. The female DLC offers new bachelorette Nova and a statue of Doc the Inventor while the male DLC features new bachelor Edmond and a statue of the Harvest goddess.

Here’s a rundown of the new marriage candidates:
