Natsume Announces Codename: Project HappinessA joint project between Natsume, Toybox and Rising Star will be at E3 next week.06.01.12 - 1:25 AM
Just a day after announcing plans to localize Harvest Moon: A New Beginning
for Nintendo 3DS, Natsume had another pre-E3 reveal to make. Announced was Codename: Project Happiness (which, as you may have figured out is not its final title), which is a joint project between Natsume, Japanese publisher Toybox, and European publisher Rising Star Games. This will be a brand new IP, in development by the 'father of Harvest Moon
' himself, Yasuhiro Wada, and will be a title for players of all ages. Says Wada, "Project Happiness is an IP that is very close to my heart, and stems from years of working on other great titles like the Harvest Moon series. Project Happiness is not only meant to be a fun game experience, but I also want it to help expand the player's view of the world, and make them ponder what their life means to them."
Little else is known about Project Happiness at the moment, however, Natsume and Wada will be revealing more at next week's E3 in Los Angeles, so stay tuned for more info!
