Natsume Inc. dropped a brand new trailer along with some characters and features today for their upcoming release of Harvest Moon: Light of Hope Special Edition, coming out in May. First off, you’ll be getting a new character in Soleil, a Gem Sprite who has a past “shrouded in mystery”, which you’ll have to help introduce to everything int he outside world. Which should be an easy task with the new co-op mode coming to the game, so one player can help her out while the other works on other happenings at the farm. Below is the trailer, along with a snippet from the press release sent out today.
Harvest Moon: Light of Hope Special Edition players will meet Soleil, a Gem Sprite whose origin is shrouded in mystery. Being a Gem Sprite, Soleil is unfamiliar with the world outside of the dark caverns. It will be up to players to introduce Soleil to the wonders of the outside world! Soleil will also guide players through the new CO-OP Play. Grab a friend, and they’ll be able to control Soleil and help out on your farm using Soleil’s Gem Sprite magic! Soleil will be able to grow crops, tend livestock, and gather materials. Farmwork has never been so easy! What’s more, Soleil is also a marriageable candidate! When Soleil develops feelings for the main character, they will take on a human form!
