Light of Hope is the first Harvest Moon game available for PC, Nintendo Switch, and Playstation 4. The game was first released in November 2017 on the Steam home computer gaming platform, with the Switch and Ps4 consoles to be released later. On Steam, the game requires about 600 MB of hard drive space, supports Steam achievements and badges, and also supports compatible gaming controllers for those who don't want to play using the default keyboard option.

Farmers can choose to play as a girl or boy main character, with five marriage candidates available for either gender; same-gender marriage is not an option. You can give gifts to raise your chemistry with the candidates as well as give gifts and complete special requests that they will send to your farm mailbox. An in-game map will tell you where the candidates and the villagers are currently located.

Crop mutations have returned along with different soil types that influence crop maturity, but this time the soil is location based (mountain, farm, etc.) rather than based on terraforming. The new Farming Friend feature will bring up an alert bubble when standing next to a growing crop to indicate if it is something you already have listed in your plant encyclopedia or if it is a new type of crop (shown as ??) that you don't know yet. The profile for each crop seed will tell you where and in what season the seed prefers to be planted in, although you can plant the seeds all year long. One bag of seeds plants one crop. You can then sell the crops to the local merchant or sell them via your shipping bin. Crops also only need to be watered once per day.
