STATE OF THE FARM - APRIL 2017

Welcome! For those who are not familiar with our STATE OF THE FARM updates, this is where we collect together the month’s news in brief, and look ahead to the coming months as well. While these columns currently focus on the 20th anniversary of Harvest Moon, we’ll also be discussing other upcoming titles later in 2017. And, speaking of other upcoming titles…

WILD GUNS RELOADED SADDLES UP FOR A PC LAUNCH
Our four gunslingers are heading to the Wild West once again!  We’re excited to be working with Natsume Atari to bring Wild Guns Reloaded to PC via Steam.  It’ll have all the same bullet-frantic action as the PS4 title, including the two new characters Bullet and Doris, local multiplayer, and leaderboards.  Wild Guns Reloaded on PC will also be available for hands-on play during E3 2017, taking place June 13th through 15th in Los Angeles, California.

INTRODUCING HARVEST MOON: LIL’ FARMERS
Our partners at Rising Star Games announced earlier this month a brand new interactive Harvest Moon digital activity playset coming to iOS, Android, and Kindle Fire in May! Lil’ Farmers is designed for newcomers to the series, whether they’re young or young at heart, by eliminating the reading barrier from typical games.  With no text, the focus is on interactivity, making it a great starting point for children to learn about the Harvest Moon universe. Watch for more details in the coming month! Harvest Moon: Lil’ Farmers will also be available for hands-on play during E3 2017.

E3 IS FAST APPROACHING
Speaking of E3, we’re counting down the days before E3 begins in mid-June. This is always an exciting time of year for us, as this is when we have our major announcements for the year leading up to and during the show. Keep watching our Facebook, Twitter, Tumblr, and Instagram for exciting new game reveals and more as the show approaches.

What else is coming?
We’ve still got a few Harvest Moon 20th anniversary surprises on the way, as well as some other surprises…but that will have to wait for May’s State of the Farm column! Thanks for being awesome Natsume fans as always!

Moon River, main theme from Breakfast at Tiffany’s.

Lyrics:

Moon River, wider than a mile,
I’m crossing you in style some day.
Oh, dream maker, you heart breaker,
wherever you’re going I’m going your way.

Two drifters off to see the world.
There’s such a lot of world to see.
We’re after the same rainbow’s end–
waiting ‘round the bend,
my huckleberry friend,
Moon River and me.
