Harvest Moon: One World lets North American farmers get busy

The game is available today for Nintendo Switch and PlayStation 4.

Harvest Moon: One World, the latest installment in the popular franchise, is available now for both Nintendo Switch and PlayStation 4 in North America. It should also release in Europe in a few days, courtesy of Rising Star Games.

The game's new area of focus, as its title implies, is a whole "world" of environments. Players must bring vanished crops back to a variety of environments throughout the world, following the disappearance of the Harvest Goddess.

"Harvest Moon: One World is our largest Harvest Moon game yet," said Hiro Maekawa, Natsume's president and CEO. "With five different lands inspired by real places, mystical Harvest Wisps, innovative tools that help you quickly travel and take your barn with you, and new rare and exotic animals, this is truly a new world for players to explore."

According to a press release, players will gain the knowledge necessary to grow and cultivate various seeds by tracking down Harvest Wisps. That will be no easy feat, though, and the hunt for additional wisps will play out on a global scale. Just check out this list of features:

  • Explore 5 unique and colorful areas: the sprawling grasslands of Calisson, the gorgeous beaches of Halo Halo, the searing desert heat of Pastilla, the cozy hills of Lebkuchen, and the snowy mountains of Salmiakki!

  • Play as a boy or a girl and woo one of 5 handsome bachelors and 5 beautiful bachelorettes, each with their own unique personality and backstory!

  • Raise and keep animals such as cows, sheep, goats, and even reindeer!

  • Use your Expando-Farm to easily travel from one area to another!
Harvest Moon: One World carries an MSRP of $49.99 USD, and has been rated E for Everyone by the fine folks at the ESRB. Of course, you could always spend more money for a special "collector's edition" that comes with a chicken plushie and music diorama complete with magnetic animals: a cow, a sheep and a penguin.

Speaking of spending more money, there's also a season pass available, and just when you thought the game would already have seasons. Four DLC packs cover various gameplay elements. The Interior Design & Tool Upgrade Pack should be available now, and the Mythical Wild Animals Pack is due this Spring. Pricing for the first pack is $2.99, or you can buy the season pass for $14.99, which says to me either that subsequent packs will be more expensive or Natsume is looking forward to taking advantage of people who suck at math.

Have you been waiting for the next Harvest Moon? And if so, will you be picking it up on PS4 or Switch?
