The second in Natsume’s series of “Feature Spotlight” videos for Harvest Moon: Light of Hope introduces the game’s farming enhancements.

Here’s an overview of rebuilding from producer Taka Maekawa:

“Hi again, everyone! Taka here. I’m the producer for Harvest Moon: Light of Hope. Today, we’re showing off the second in our series of Feature Spotlights for Harvest Moon: Light of Hope, a new title coming to PC via Steam, PlayStation 4, and Nintendo Switch!

Today, I’d like to focus on the farming enhancements coming in Light of Hope. As you can see from the video, we’re focusing on speeding up gameplay, with the ability to till, sow, and water your crops faster than ever!

But the big exciting feature we’d like to focus on is your Farming Friend! What’s that, you ask? Well, it’s an icon that will appear after you sow, water, or fertilize your crops to let you know if you’re raising them at their full potential!

And that’s not all! One of the best things about your Farming Friend is that after you’ve harvested a crop, your Farming Friend will now display exactly what crop you’ll be harvesting! No more guessing in case you forgot exactly where you planted what crops. And what’s more, if your Farming Friend displays a question mark over a crop you’ve already harvested, like a strawberry, you’ll know that you’ve succeeded in producing a MUTATED crop! Awesome!

In short, your Farming Friend is designed to make Harvest Moon: Light of Hope more user friendly and fun to play.
We hope the Spotlight Feature video sheds a little more “light” on this exciting new change to farming, and we look forward to seeing you again in our next Spotlight Feature segment!

Happy Farming”
