  1. River City has been one of gaming's longest running franchises and Natsume has something special planned for the 30th anniversary with the release of River City: Rival Showdown. Officially, the River City games are part of the Kunio-Kun series, which have proven to be massively popular in Japan. There have been 52 games made related to the series if you include collections and spin-offs, which is, quite frankly, a staggering number. River City: Rival Showdown stands as a remake of the original River City Ransom that completely overhauls the story to provide multiple paths and endings, a fighting system that reflects more modern sensibilities, and a lot of other changes that are sure to reward longtime River City fans. A day-night cycle has been introduced along with super special moves, 2-player local co-op, difficulty settings, and a bonus Double Dragon fighting game. "Natsume is proud to continue the Kunio-Kun legacy with River City: Rival Showdown and welcome players back to the city and its residents in a brand-new way!" said Hiro Maekawa, president and CEO of Natsume. "Rival Showdown is a big milestone for the Kunio-Kun series as it marks the 30th anniversary for the series and it evolves the franchise in a major way." River City: Rival Showdown follows Kunio after he survives an attack by two unknown assailants. His friend Riki's girlfriend has also gone missing, and Kunio only has three days to solve the mystery of her disappearance. The only problem? An army of thugs and gang members seem bent on stopping him from finding her. River City: Rival Showdown is available today on 3DS. View full article

  3. Natsume is gearing up for the launch of Harvest Moon: Light of Hope, the first game in the franchise's 20 year history to release on PC. Though Light of Hope will also release for Nintendo Switch and PlayStation 4, the PC version has been finished ahead of schedule and will release this year with the console versions following in 2018. "Due to the hard work of our team, development for Harvest Moon: Light of Hope for PC ran ahead of schedule, allowing us to release the game early to PC players," said Hiro Maekawa, President & CEO of Natsume. "We have enjoyed creating an all-new game that honors 20 years of Harvest Moon, and what's more, the franchise will finally be available for the first time on PC, something fans have long asked for!" Light of Hope has players shipwrecked and washed up in a small harbor town devastated by the same storm that sunk the player's ship. With a small farm, players can help to rebuild the town and rekindle the lighthouse. Natsume has been trying to put the past two decades of Harvest Moon on full display in the newest game with familiar faces from previous titles making appearances along with the familiar gameplay players have been itching for. The newest and most interesting mechanic is the ability to slowly unlock the town by repairing its damaged structures, bringing new opportunities and characters with each repaired building. A point of contention among some fans, Light of Hope will be making use of what Natsume has dubbed a retro plus aesthetic. The visuals aim to recapture an SNES feel while putting a modern twist on everything. Some vocal fans haven't been too pleased with the aesthetic, but the graphics undoubtedly look unique. In celebration of the series' 20th anniversary, Natsume has decided to hold a drawing contest on their Facebook page. They want fans to submit original drawings of their favorite Harvest Moon characters, animals, and events before 2017 comes to a close. Fifteen winners will be chosen, and each will receive some special Natsume prizes. Harvest Moon: Light of Hope releases on November 14 for PC and early 2018 for PS4 and Switch.

  5. Natsume announced that it will be launching two new River City titles later this year, continuing the company's revival of the long dormant franchise. The two games are titled River City: Knights of Justice and River City: Rival Showdown. Both titles will be launching on 3DS this summer and fall. "River City: Tokyo Rumble was a huge success, and these two follow-ups in the popular River City/Kunio-Kun franchise are the perfect continuation of the series," said Hiro Maekawa, President & CEO of Natsume. "We are looking forward to showing the games for the first time at E3 and garnering feedback from gamers and the media!" So, we can expect to see more about each game when E3 rolls around in about two weeks. In the meantime, here's what we know so far. River City: Knights of Justice will launch this summer as an exclusive on the Nintendo 3DS e-Shop. Protagonist Kunio and his friends transform into RPG-inspired heroes and villains in a unique spin-off adventure. Players will have access to all sorts of medieval weaponry including swords, staves, and magic to bring peace to the kingdom of Riverandia. River City: Rival Showdown follows the events that transpire after Kunio is assaulted one night by two mysterious attackers. Riki's girlfriend finds herself kidnapped that same night. Kunio has three days to uncover the mystery behind his attackers and the kidnapping or something truly nefarious could happen. Faces new and old collide in this more mainstream incarnation of the River City franchise. Rival Showdown releases on the 3DS this fall. It's really neat to see new life breathed into this franchise and to see Natsume trying new things with it.

  7. In the mood for a classic brawler? Natsume might just be able to scratch that itch with River City: Tokyo Rumble, one of the few River City titles to make its way to North America recently. Players take control of Kunio, a high school student with a searing sense of justice. That dedication to all that is good and right comes into its bloody-knuckled glory when a new gang rolls into Tokyo one day and decides to take over. Kunio won't be having any of their guff! Armed with a variety of gritty melee weapons like iron knuckles or chains and various situational items like soccer balls or bicycles. Though Kunio might be armed to the teeth with bicycles and leaving a trail of bruised gang members in his wake, he still needs a job. Between work and butt-kicking, players can level their abilities, stop for snacks, and just revel in mayhem. Natsume has been pleasantly surprised by the early responses to their localization of River City: Tokyo Rumble, which initially released back in 2013 for Japanese 3DS owners. "We have already gotten early feedback that River City: Tokyo Rumble is a 'cant-put-it-down' experience, and we love hearing that reaction," said Hiro Maekawa, President & CEO of Natsume. "The series has an amazing following, and we know that this will be another great addition for fans and newcomers to the series alike!" Here's hoping Natsume takes this as a sign that Western audiences would love more River City in their lives. View full article

  9. Calling all Nintendo 3DS players (and some PlayStation 4 fans), do I have some games for you! Natsume, perched around a life-sized inflatable tree and stuffed farm animals, showcased three show stopping games that generated lines as long as the E3 convention hall. Wild Guns Reloaded made a splash as Natsume brought back the western shooting gallery title in fully remastered glory for the PlayStation 4. Play as one of the two classic gunslingers, or choose from two brand new ones, and shoot out the bad guys in this couch party extravaganza. Wild Guns Reloaded does not have a release date yet, so stay tuned. River City: Tokyo Rumble is the same side scrolling beat-em-up game that Japanese fans know and love and will be coming to the West for the first time. Play as high school student Kunio and chase out some nefarious gang members with your fists. River City: Tokyo Rumble will be released this summer for Nintendo 3DS. Harvest Moon: Skytree Village is the farming simulator that we all know and love, only this time they've addressed all the concerns that fans had in the past. With new controls, camera angles, and faster response times, Skytree Village seems to be the answer that many fans of the series have been waiting for. Harvest Moon: Skytree Village still does not have a release date for Nintendo 3DS, so stay tuned! View full article

  11. It’s Day 0 here at E3, and Natsume has released their first official trailer for their newest installment in their Nintendo 3DS Harvest Moon series, Harvest Moon: Skytree Village. This game, like its predecessors, follows the story of a once lush and vibrant town now dull and dying. It’s up to you to revive the seven Skytrees, restore the power of the Harvest Goddess, and bring the town back to life! Play as a boy or girl, meet some new faces – and a few familiar ones – and discover new and exciting crops, flowers, and fish. This game will introduce a user-friendly interface that lets you customize your character, home, farm, and the land surrounding it. This allows the user to create hills, rivers, ponds, and more! "We've revisited each and every part of what makes a Harvest Moon game, and are excited at the end result," said Taka Maekawa, Producer of the Harvest Moon series. If you’re a fan of Natsume and Marvelous games, then you’ll already know that Natsume has decided to part ways from their American publishing company Xseed back in 2014. Though the English translation of the title Bokujō Monogatari belongs to Xseed, Natsume will continue to release their version of the game while Xseed releases theirs in the United States. Each game will be a farming simulator, but very different in their own right. Harvest Moon: Skytree Village does not have a release date, so stay tuned for more info. View full article
