Harvest Moon 20th anniversary - Natsume

Japanese publisher Natsume has unveiled the full list of games it’s bringing to E3 2017.

This year, Natsume’s E3 booth will be a celebration of Harvest Moon’s 20th anniversary. The highlight is the first public showing of Harvest Moon: Light of Hope, which will be released on Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 4 and PC later this year. The Switch and PC versions of the game will be playable on the show floor.

Other playable titles include Harvest Moon: Lil’ Farmers – which was recently released on mobile – the European version of Harvest Moon: Skytree Village, and the PlayStation 4 re-releases of Harvest Moon: A Wonderful Life Special Edition, and Harvest Moon: Save the Homeland.


There will also be two River City titles to try: River City: Knights of Justice, and River City: Rival Showdown. Both games are due for release on Nintendo 3DS later this year. Finally, you’ll be able to go hands-on with the updated sci-fi western, Wild Guns Reloaded.

But the best news? Natsume’s range of adorable 6″ and 12″ plush toys – including alpacas, horses, dogs, pigs, chicks, blue birds, pandas, and sheep – will be available to purchase from the booth itself.

Natsume will be located at Booth #2047 in the South Hall. E3 2017 runs from June 13th – 15th at the Los Angeles Convention Center.

We hate to ask, but...

Thumbsticks has a couple of goals. We want to write interesting articles and cover games that most outlets won't, and we want to give opportunities to new writers and new voices. And right now, with the current state of online publishing? It's tough to meet those goals! We hate to ask, but if you want us to continue writing what others won't, or to keep covering weird indie games, or to be able to give opportunities to new writers – and only if you can afford it – then please consider supporting us on Patreon.
