Rising Star Games and Natsume Inc have announced that, due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, Harvest Moon One World has been delayed into next year. The new release date is March 2, 2021 for North America.
In the latest game in the long-running farm sim series, the Harvest Goddess has disappeared, leaving behind a barren world. You’ll have to find Harvest Wisps that contain a portion of her power, unlocking new seeds with different fruits and vegetables as you progress through the story.
Harvest Moon: One World expands the gameplay beyond the typical one-town setting into a much larger world, including hard-to-find Harvest Wisps. One World features an all new graphical engine.
“Unfortunately, the Covid-19 pandemic has impacted everyone in our world in many ways,” said Hiro Maekawa, President and CEO of Natsume. “Although the current events have delayed the launch of Harvest Moon: One World, we are working hard every day to create a great game that introduces players to a whole new world and promises Serious Fun.”
Harvest Moon: One World will release March 2, 2021 on Nintendo Switch. A Limited Edition will also release, which includes the official soundtrack, Best Friends pin set, and a cloth poster, all in a collector’s box.
