Harvest Moon Returns to Mobile Devices this Summer

Natsume has announced Harvest Moon: Home Sweet Home, a brand new entry in the cozy franchise designed explicitly for mobile devices.

The long running cozy farming franchise, Harvest Moon, is coming to mobile platforms once again with a brand new title. It’s been a while since the franchise was on mobile devices (even though it seems uniquely perfect for it), with the last entry being 2016’s Harvest Moon: Seeds of Memories.

Much has changed in the mobile gaming realm since then, so I’m pretty excited to see what Home Sweet Home brings to the table when it arrives this August. I’m always down for harvesting my crops, and if I can do it easily/without hassle on my phone…even better.

“We are excited to bring a fresh new Harvest Moon experience back to mobile gamers with Harvest Moon: Home Sweet Home,” shared Hiro Maekawa, President and CEO of Natsume. “Featuring the traditional Harvest Moon style that fans know and love, along with some familiar faces, we hope this will be a cozy farming adventure favorite for all mobile gamers. We look forward to welcoming you home this summer!”


Home is where the heart is! After ten years of city life, you’re ready to head back home in Harvest Moon: Home Sweet Home! Your childhood friend has convinced you to move back to your hometown to try to revitalize it, but it won’t be easy going! The town of Alba has seen better days, and not all its residents are happy to see a city slicker like you back! Can you convince even the negative naysayers that you truly have the village’s best interests at heart? And can you revitalize Alba? With the help of your childhood friend and other villagers on your side, you definitely can!

No release date just yet, but Harvest Moon: Home Sweet Home is set to hit iOS and Android devices in August 2024.
