Natsume Reveals 2010 Lineup

Family-oriented game developer, Natsume, recently confirmed that they will be unveiling their 2010 lineup at The Anime Expo in Los Angeles, this Thursday through Sunday.

The lineup consists of fresh entries in beloved franchises as well as one or two completely new titles. The Natsume booth, which will be located at 1201 in the South Hall of the Los Angeles Convention Center, will be home to exhibitions of Harvest Moon: Grand Bazaar, Lufia: Curse of the Sinistrals, Rune Factory 3: A Fantasy Harvest Moon, and Gabrielle’s Ghostly Groove, all on the DS.

“This is our first time exhibiting at the Anime Expo, and we think that our lineup of titles launching over the next six months is the perfect fit for the show’s attendees. We have highly anticipated new entries in the Harvest Moon and Rune Factory series with Harvest Moon: The Grand Bazaar and Rune Factory 3, the triumphant return of the Lufia series with Lufia: Curse of the Sinistrals, and the fun and fright filled rhythm game, Gabrielle’s Ghostly Groove,” said Natsume CEO, Hiro Maekawa.

Having grown up playing Natsume titles, I must say that it’s nice to see a new Harvest Moon game that doesn’t, well, suck. The Anime Expo crowd is just the type of audience that Natsume caters to, and with this lineup it sounds as if they’ll make a great first impression on the attendees.
