    While the title of the game may have Harvest Moon in it, do not be fooled. The real Harvest Moon is now named Story of Seasons.

    It will be interesting to see how this Harvest Moon will differ from the rest after the CEO of Natsume, Hiro Maekawa's comments on Light of Hope.

    Was excited for a second until I remembered that these are no longer the proper Harvest Moon games we all know and love. Now if there is an announcement for a new Story of Seasons or better yet for Rune Factory 5 coming to the Switch, now that would be exciting!

    I was excited as well until I realized that this wasn't actually the Harvest Moon I know. We can always hope but for now, I wanna see how this plays out

    It hasn't been 'the real Harvest Moon' for like three games now has it? Meh, I'll give this a shot. At the end of the day, Stardew Valley is coming to Switch so if this flops, I'll always have that to fall back on.

    Gambia, The
    As a Pc Gamer I would like to get a Harvest Moon ....
    I know we have Stardew Valley and that's great and all ....
    but a few more GOOD titles would be real nice
    A Rune Factory or a Innocent Life title would be nice too

    I just hope that it's not another shitty mobile port

    played the first on the gb decades ago and didn't find it fun. I guess this series has a large enough fan base to keep going. Farming sims never real change much. How can they? A farming sim is a farming sim after all.

    Harvest Moon is a farming sim? More like a dating sim set on a farm lol

    Not a real Harvest Moon, just one of the crappy Natsume games so I'll pass. Maybe I'll grab it on a sale for less than 3€ for steam or so.

    Only buying Story of Seasons now, which are the 'real' Harvest Moon I grew up playing (although a lot of people who don't know what happened might still buy the HM and get disappointed, oh well).


    You can't get those from Natsume, they don't own the series (only own the name of HM), Marvelous own the real HM and all it's spin offs, but don't think they'd risk the PC market.

    Hum, might give it a try anyway, the last few real HMs kinda sucked anyway, so how much worse can this be? :unsure: (haven't played Story of Seasons yet, last HM I played was A New Beginning)

    Interesting. Haven't played a new HM game in well over a decade. Not too into farming/dating sims nowadays.

    Also, nice typo Gamestop. "The fist installment on pc and Nintendo Switch." Lololol

    My gf highly recommends SoS - Trio of Towns. She put soooo much time into that game.
