You can find a brief synopsis of the game below, courtesy of the developers themselves (via Gematsu):

“In Harvest Moon: Light of Hope, players begin the game as they set out looking for a fresh start and new surroundings. During their voyage, their ship is hit by a monsoon and goes down. As they drift into a small harbor town, now in a shambles from the storm, it will be up to the player to help rebuild the town and save the lighthouse…but it won’t be easy!”

“Nevertheless, with some hard work growing crops, tending livestock, and gathering materials for repairs, players will be able to make new friends, start a family, revive the lighthouse, and save the town!”

A release date for Harvest Moon: Light of Hope is yet to be announced. TrustedReviews will be at E3 2017 so if any further news emerges we’ll be here to report on it.
