We still don’t know anything about the Nintendo Switch version of Harvest Moon: Light of Hope, but at least, we already have the confirmation that it’s going to get an official guide by Prima Games.
The guide includes details about all the missions, but also farming strategies, details on how to befriend every character in the game, but also a 20 year retrospective of the series, developer interview, a calendar/poster, and more.
The Collector’s Edition of the guide costs $39.99, and can be pre-ordered on Amazon.com (NB: affiliate link) and various other retailers. It will be released sometime in June (most likely on the same day as the game itself). It will also be available as an eGuide.
Here’s the (temp.) cover of the Collector’s Edition:
