– Play as a young girl or boy
– Starting a new life
– Complete basic Harvest Moon tasks like clearing the land, growing crops, shipping produce, and raising animals
– Doing so will entice more villagers to return to the island
– Once you bring back villagers, you’ll be able to help them out with requests and take advantage of more goods, services, and features that will open up further possibilities for farming
– Top-down view
– Natsume is describing the look as “retro plus”
– Combination of drawn backgrounds and soft-edged 3D character and animal models
– In the talking-heads cutscenes, lively, animated models stand behind their dialogue boxes acting out associated emotions
– Can zoom way in or way out using the ‘ZL’ and ‘ZR’ buttons
– The daily grind is very similar to what it was in the original Harvest Moon
– The controls have been streamlined significantly
– Contextual tools all mapped onto a single ‘action’ button
– Walk up to a weed and press ‘B’ to pluck it
– Pressing the same button in front of a planted seed will water it instead
– Clear land, till land, plant crops, pick crops, break up stones, cut down trees, and store found objects
– Can move by tapping and then holding a swipe outward in any direction on the touchscreen
– Interact with anything nearby with another tap
– Can use the touchscreen to access menus and item storage
– Can till, plant, or water a whole section of land by dragging a finger across it
– Plenty of dating events and farming in the final version
– Five bachelors and five bachelorettes planned
– Those who have kept up with the series will recognize familiar faces in the love market
– The recurring appearance of characters — as with the cast running through the original game, Harvest Moon 64, Back to Nature, and Friends of Mineral town — has come up as a common theme when fans say what they love about the classic titles
– Love interests include Buff florist Dean, shy and flustered Jeanne, Melanie
– Form relationships with gift giving, sparkling conversation, and event triggering
– Cows, chickens, sheep, horses, dogs, and Poitou donkey appearing
– You’ll see a cow that gave chocolate milk, a ‘chocolate chicken’ that gives candied eggs, and a pink sheep that produces cotton candy wool
– Candy products are apparently treated differently from their workaday variants in terms of recipes, shipping, and villager likes and dislikes

– 2.5D style is meant to evoke the very first Harvest Moon game
– 16-bit Super Nintendo sprites have been replaced with 3D-rendered models
– The flat perspective and grid-based, limited range of motion are all straight from Harvest Moon on SNES
– Natsume is emphatic that the studio is doing its own thing with Light of Hope, not borrowing anything back from Stardew Valley
– There still aren’t same-sex relationships available
– Natsume will introduce these “when the time is right”

– Uses the touchscreen capabilities offered by Switch
– Seamlessly transition from normal joystick and button inputs to touchscreen inputs with no trouble
– Water plants in a more mapped trail with the touchscreen rather than a straight line
– Return to the more classic form that the series developed in the early years
– A monsoon has shipwrecked you on an island that’s suffering from deterioration and depopulation
– Need to save them with your powers of gathering materials and building things
– It’s up to you to revive this town by improving it as you build up your own prosperous lifestyle
– Juggle your objectives, your relationships, and your story
– One button can accomplish anything you need to do on your farm
– Aiming for the end of 2017 for a release date
