Harvest Moon: Light Of Hope Special Edition Has An Additional Love Interest

Recommended Videos


Natsume has revealed what additional content will be found in Harvest Moon: Light of Hope Special Edition, the version of the game appearing on the Nintendo Switch and PlayStation 4. In addition to four planned add-ons, which can be purchased alone or in a season pass, the console versions of the game will include cooperative farming with a second player and allow people to meet and romance Soleil.


Soleil is a Gem Sprite that becomes the second player in Harvest Moon: Light of Hope Special Edition’s co-op. When another player joins up, they can use Gem Sprite magic to tend to crops and livestock or help with gathering and harvesting. As players get closer to Soleil, the Gem Sprite will take on a human form and become a romance option. It seems like Soleil will be like Harvest Moon: Magical Melody’s Jamie, in that their gender in human form will depend on the gender of the player.


A new Harvest Moon: Light of Hope Special Edition trailer shows how Soleil and the co-op will work in the game.



Harvest Moon: Light of Hope Special Edition will come to the Nintendo Switch and  PlayStation 4 in May 2018. Harvest Moon: Light of Hope is immediately available for the PC.
