Harvest Moon: Light of Hope Special Edition Coming to Switch, PS4 in May

Posted on February 10, 2018 by Jason Nason

Natsume Inc. and Rising Star Games today announced Harvest Moon: Light of Hope Special Edition will be launching on Nintendo Switch and PlayStation 4 for $39.99 USD in May 2018.

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.

“Harvest Moon fans have been eager to experience the series on Nintendo Switch and PlayStation 4, so we are happy to be able to give them a date to put on their calendar! The Special Edition has new features made specifically for console gamers that we will be unveiling throughout the coming months,” said Hiro Maekawa, President  & CEO of Natsume. “We also look forward to sharing some special bonuses to go along with the game. Fans should definitely stay tuned as we lead up to the launch this spring!”

“We are honoured to continue to work in close partnership with Natsume in order to bring Harvest Moon: Light of Hope Special Edition to our Harvest Moon fans and to newcomers, across Europe, Australia and the Middle East,” said Martin Defries, Managing Director of Rising Star Games. “The series has delighted game fans for many years; the versions that release this Spring will bring happiness to console gamers across the PlayStation and Nintendo Switch universe”.

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 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! 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!


Maintenance Tuesday for Pocket Camp ahead of new features

Posted on February 10, 2018 by Jason Nason

Animal Crossing: Pocket Camp will be undergoing some scheduled maintenance early next week. The maintenance will take place starting February 13th at 11am ET and run until later that day, wrapping up around 6pm ET.

Since Animal Crossing: Pocket Camp is an online only game the game will be offline during that time, so you will be unable to play Animal Crossing: Pocket Camp.

The maintenance is certainly to bring in a few new features to the game, which have been teased about on Twitter. These include the ability to dress up your animal campers as well as a new device coming to OK Motors. The “Brake Tapper” device looks to be a slot machine. There is little information to go on but likely this will have a free daily play followed by spending of Leaf Tickets for additional plays.

There will also very likely be more to the dress up aspect. Look to have animals have preferred clothing options and request specific clothing items be crafted to their liking. This could also be an added request before an animal will come to your campground.

Lottie’s Gothic Rose Festival just wrapped up yesterday. Be sure to go by your garden, pick the remaining roses, and collect your Bells from Lottie.

Update: The Japanese Twitter account for Pocket Camp @pokemori_jp tweeted out a teaser image for the next in game event from Lloyd’s perspective. The next series of furniture items seem to have a crystal theme.
