Bad news for farming game fans, the latest addition to the Harvest Moon franchise, Harvest Moon: One World, won’t be out this year. Initially this release was set for the coming autumn, but publisher Natsume say that, due to COVID-19, they have been forced to push it back a few months. The new release date is 5th March 2021 in Europe, while the Americas receive the game a few days earlier, on 2nd March.
When Harvest Moon: One World does arrive, it will be launching on PS4 and Switch. Here’s Natsume’s description of their upcoming grow-em-up:
Before the Harvest Goddess disappeared from this world, she imbued the tiny Harvest Wisps with the knowledge of various seeds, thus ensuring the various fruits and vegetables of the world would not be lost. Using the power given to these Harvest Wisps, you’ll unlock various seeds as you progress through the game! But the Harvest Wisps can be tricky to find, as they all appear at different times and places. You’ll need to use your noggin to make sure to seek as many as you can of them out!
Can you imagine a world without tomatoes, strawberries, or even cabbage? That’s the situation players will find themselves in in the latest entry in the Harvest Moon series, Harvest Moon: One World. Only an old book gives hints of what once was… Buoyed by a mysterious discovery, however, players will find themselves setting out on an adventure that spans not only their hometown but the whole world! What kind of people and places await? From the gorgeous beaches of Halo Halo to the snowy mountains of Salmiakki, there’s literally an entire world to explore!
