Harvest Moon is arguably the marquee title in this collection. It’s the origin of the popular farming RPG series that has been on Nintendo consoles since 1997. The franchise has been split in ownership of the IP, leading to a Story of Seasons series with the original creators as late as 2019 and Harvest Moon being its own thing under newer creators as late as 2018. Nonetheless, the version now in Nintendo Switch Online is where it all started, kicking off a long series of colorful farming fun that would go on to inspire beloved games like Stardew Valley.

With Harvest Moon and the other games now available to play on Nintendo Switch Online, subscribers can check them out as they please. Stay tuned for further updates and additions to the Nintendo Switch Online library.
