Harvest Moon: Light of Hope Announced for PS4, Switch & PC

[embedded content] Encompassing “twenty years of spirit that has made the franchise what it is today,” Harvest Moon: Light of Hope was announced for PlayStation 4, Nintendo Switch, and PC today by Natsume. With the new game, you’ll begin by setting out and looking for a fresh start, but during your voyage, your ship is hit by a monsoon 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!” the description adds. “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!” According to Natsume President Hiro Maekawa, Light of Hope is a “SNES-style nostalgic game” with a robust story and clear-cut goals: Harvest Moon: Light of Hope will set itself apart from other Harvest Moon titles with its depth, including a robust story and clear-cut goals.

2D Platformer 88 Heroes Dated for March, PS4 Gets Physical Edition and Exclusive Content

88 Heroes, the frantic 2D platformer in the works at developer Bitmap Bureau, has been slated for a March release on all platforms. Set to hit Xbox One, PC and PS4, those on the latter platform can look forward to a physical release to boot courtesy of publisher Rising Star Games.
