Natsume says Harvest Moon: Light of Hope exceeded expectations, teases multiple projects for 2019

Natsume president and CEO, Hiro Maekawa, has shared some details on the public reception to Harvest Moon: Light of Hope. It seems like the game did quite well!

Last year, 2018 was one of the best years for us in recent history. We released our latest entry in the Harvest Moon franchise, Harvest Moon: Light of Hope Special Edition in May for the Nintendo Switch and PlayStation 4. The title performed well beyond our forecast and even set new sales record with the number of both physical and digital combined.

On top of that, Natsume teased some new projects for 2019.

We are currently working on several new titles that will be announced in the near future, to continue to please our worldwide fans in 2019 and beyond.

Natsume sends out a Happy Holidays card

You know the holiday season is here when game companies start sending out their holiday cards! Natsume hits with the first card of the season, as far as I know. We'll be keeping tabs on any other cards that make their way out, and will certainly share them with you. Let's see who ends up having the best one this year!

Famicom game Idol Hakkenden gets an English fan-translation

The Famicom text-based adventure game Idol Hakkenden was released by Natsume all the way back in 1989, and never saw an English localization. That's now changed thanks to a group of fan-translators. You can check out some footage of the English translation above!
