May '18 BokuMobage and LoH DLC Details | Posted at 07:44 PM on 04 May 2018
Happy Farm'n Friday! Last weekend I tilled up a nice 19 foot trench in preparation for this weekend's dahlia tuber planting. Mixing in some garden soil and other amendments with the native soil should, in theory, help the dahlias grow nice and healthy this year. The front-yard dirt is not in the best of shape and needs lots of love. Eventually I'll get it beautiful! Just takes a lot of work... whew...

May Bokumono for Mobage Events

It's a new month and a new set of events for the mobile version of Bokujou Mongatari on the Mobage social network.

LoH Digital Pre-orders

Those who are planning on purchasing the North American digital version of Harvest Moon: Light of Hope can now pre-order their copy from the Playstation Store or the Nintendo eShop. Both digital versions are currently discounted by a tiny bit (regularly $49.99, on sale for $44.99) and also include the Season Pass that unlocks the four DLC packs that will become available at some point after the game's release on May 29th.

Farmers who pre-ordered a physical copy of the game at Gamestop USA (for the plushie cow - $39.99) or at NIS America (for the LE + plushie cow - $64.99) will not automatically have the Season Pass. The pass is a separate digital purchase.

On the other hand, the European Limited Edition from Rising Star Games, which released on June 22, does include the Season Pass containing the four DLC packs. The RSG LE bundle doesn't ship outside of the European region.

LoH DLC Overview

The DLC can either be purchased together in the Season Pass or individually if you don't want all of them. The Season Pass is anticipated to cost approximately $10 USD. The Nintendo Switch eShop details the estimated individual price, release dates, and the features included with each pack. Buying each DLC separately will naturally cost more than the combined Season Pass:

Decorations and Tool Upgrade Pack - This DLC will cost $1.99 USD and is scheduled to be available on the game's North American release date, May 29. It includes the Harvest Goddess Statue and the absolutely magnificent golden Doc statue, which were originally designed as a DLC for Harvest Moon: Skytree Village. The pack also includes seven new fence designs to decorate your farm such as the construction cone, barrel, and a frog prince statue. Besides the Doc shrine statue, a benefit to this DLC is the addition of two more tool level upgrades for the watering can and the hoe. In the PC version of Light of Hope, the maximum area these tools can cover is 3 x 15. Having two more tool levels beyond that will definitely make things easier, especially when trying to use the hoe to dig for the hidden staircase down to the next floor while exploring the mine.

New Marriageable Characters Pack - This DLC will cost $5.99 and is scheduled to be available June 19. Alas, it does not make Doc a sexy marriage candidate, but it does bring in two new characters: Michelle and Shirlock. Michelle will be Doc's assistant genius, while Shirlock will be Naomi's journalist apprentice. This DLC will include romance events for each of the new characters and requests.

In Light of Hope, one way to raise friendship is by completing the requests that villagers and marriage candidates send to your farm mailbox. You'll be requested to bring the villager a particular item such as a flower, hybrid crop, fish, or materials. In exchange you'll receive a reward and a boost of friendship. Villagers will have a series of request that only appear one time. After those requests are completed, you can receive season-based requests that are repeatable.

Doc's and Melanie's Special Episodes - This DLC will cost $5.99 and is scheduled to be available July 10. This pack will add two new stories to the game. Melanie's story is about sewing clothing outfits and will add various seasonal outfits for your farmer character and the marriage candidates. Doc's story revolves around his romance issues; I'm assuming it's regarding that red-headed vixen, Carol. Bah! She doesn't understand his extraordinary mind like I do! As we all lament Doc's affections towards another, at least suffering through this ordeal with Doc will bring farm house interior designs along with it. There'll be a total of seven interior designs for Doc to craft for your farm house.

Divine Marriageable Characters Pack - The last DLC costs $3.99 and is scheduled to be available July 31. This pack will make the Harvest Goddess and Underworld King into potential marriage candidates, adding in romantic events for wooing the deities. Oh my, Gorgon?! Well, that's interesting! It's not Doc though!

Until next time!
