Natsume has been hyping Harvest Moon: One World for Nintendo Switch and PlayStation 4 since May, but today is finally the day that we’re getting a great look at the game in action with a gameplay trailer. Natsume describes this farm sim as the “biggest Harvest Moon game in history” since you will be traveling the world and going to five different areas, experiencing new sights and cultures. “You’ll ride camels across the deserts of Pastilla, venture deep into the snowy mountains of Salmiakki, and even visit a volcano near the cozy mountain town of Lebkuchen!” There will also be five bachelors and five bachelorettes with unique personalities and backstories with whom you might develop a relationship.
As we’ve detailed before, the premise of Harvest Moon: One World is that vegetables have ceased to grow, along with the knowledge of how to grow them, but you can find “tiny Harvest Wisps” in the game world left behind by the Harvest Goddess that hold knowledge of different seed types. Collecting Harvest Wisps will enable fruit and vegetable seeds to grow again. Additionally, you’ll still be raising various cattle like cows, sheep, goats, and even reindeer. However, the wildest part of all is your “Expando-Farm,” which seemingly allows you to carry your entire farm with you wherever you go! Not bad.
As the trailer reminds us, Harvest Moon: One World launches on March 2, 2021. However, if you want to get more and spend more, the Harvest Moon: One World Collector’s Edition from Limited Run Games will take preorders starting Jan. 5, for Nintendo Switch and PlayStation 4 alike.
