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.
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
