Rising Star Games and Natsume have revealed that Harvest Moon: One World is in development for Nintendo Switch.
Nintendo of Europe will distribute the game in European countries, which, developed with “an all-new engine and graphics,” promises fledgling farmers the chance to explore a world filled with “new and familiar faces, unique villages and adventurous challenges” while managing their flourishing farm.
After finding yourself in a world without tomatoes, strawberries or cabbage, only an old and mysterious book will hint at what these once were. You will soon set out on an adventure across the world, from the sunny beaches of Halo Halo to the snowy mountains of Salmiakki.
“Harvest Moon: One World features a brand-new way of exploring Harvest Moon that seasoned players and new generations will both enjoy,” explains Natsume president and CEO Hiro Maekawa.
“Over the decades, Harvest Moon has evolved but has always retained the traditional, family-friendly farming fun that the franchise is known for. The new engine and new graphics will upgrade this experience for 2020. We are so excited to share more about the features of Harvest Moon: One World in the coming months.”
Thunderful Publishing and Rising Star Games’ Brjann Sigurgeirsson adds: “Rising Star Games has been partnering with Natsume for nearly two decades. Harvest Moon is the very series that started the farming genre, always innovating and bringing fresh ideas whilst attracting new players.
“With the invaluable support of Nintendo of Europe, we will continue to carry the torch of this successful series into 2020 and beyond for Pan-European regions with the release of Harvest Moon: One World for Nintendo Switch.”
Harvest Moon: One World will release exclusively for Nintendo Switch worldwide in 2020.
